I've heard a lot of adoptive parents call the process a paper chase. It's how I arrived at the title to this blog: paper chase...chasing paper...lots of airplane rides involved in adoption...paper airplanes could make a cute design...chasing paper airplanes.
Anyway, it turns out people weren't joking about the paper chase.
Up until today, it was a few papers here and a few there. All in all, manageable and easy to complete.
But today, I got an email from our adoption specialist. I kept scrolling...and scrolling...and scrolling until I came to the sixteen attachments that will have to be completed.
And if I were to take a guess, I'd still say we're in the beginning phases of all the paperwork.
