On The Case

Today I bought a file folder case.  It is currently empty, but it is soon to be the home of the many forms to be completed and submitted and filed in order to make this adoption happen.

One consistent theme in any infertility literature that I have come across is “lack of control”. The same applies to adoption.  My fate is in the hands of social workers, agencies and international government policies.  Keeping the paperwork together in a box, adding cute labels and hoping to fill it up is all I’ve got right now!

If this all goes through, this picture will be on the first page of my child’s Life Book. (That’s ‘adopteese’ for Baby Book).
