So - we are doing our best to be patient.
We have asked about another child in Oleksandra's country - we only know that she will not be released for international adoption until at least August & our paperwork would need to be redone (not all of it - but a lot)
Her medical condition was extremely vague - getting more info has not been easy - we have heard nothing.
We are trying to be patient, with all the upset in her country I am sure there are lots of families keeping the whole RR team very busy.
We are starting to look elsewhere - other countries - we know we will adopt a special needs girl someday - seriously not sure where - it really has only been a few weeks since we heard that Oleksandra had been adopted.
May 4th exactly - it seriously boggles my mind still. We knew it was legally possible, but I just can't fully wrap my head around it. I think we will always miss her - I don't know if that is appropriate, but I will. My heart hopes some day to meet her in heaven, and I don't mean that in a trite way, I honestly mean it. We seriously loved that little girl. We know we will never meet her on Earth. I will continue to pray for her, and I really do look forward to the opportunity of someday meeting her - how awesome would that be?!
I try to remind myself that beautiful girl has been loved and cherished by her family, being jealous of her family has subsided somewhat - but I am still a little jealous.
Please pray for our adoption process - we would like to hear back about this little girl we asked about in Oleksandra's country, we've also asked about (and had info sent over) about a BEAUTIFUL little girl in Tawain.
We want more than anything to support RR - we have prayed for & supported this organization in some way since we found it just a few months after we adopted our son (over 3 years ago) - it has literally been our dream.
Anyway - sorry for the rambling, I just hadn't updated in a while and thought I should.
Please pray for our adoption process -we know God has called us to adopt a special needs orphan...just trying to figure out where she is from. Please pray for us as we continue to mourn 'Claire'.
