Sorry it didn't work out. As stated, things usually happen for a reason.
Deleted double post, sorry
Sorry to hear it and glad you are ok.
Why delete it when you can just change it to a post about bacon?
If I actually could expense the whole thing, I'd be on the first plane down there!
Instead, it'll be a vicarious trip.
Sounds awesome! I'm making you an honorary state worker with that schedule.
What an interesting story. I'm sorry things didn't work out, but it seems she just doesn't want to be here for one reason or another. I guess if I think about it this way, I'd think it would be hard for any 14 year old to want to leave everything and everyone they know to move almost half way around the world. I pray for the best for her and your family.
Seems like there would be more red tape than this.
So sorry to hear this didn't work out. From what I've read on here from you and just now reading your wifes blog this sounds like it has been a very trying and confusing couple of weeks or even months. The fact that you even put yourselves out there is very admirable. I hope that you can find peace in the decision.
Sorry to hear that, Chris. I know this has been in the works for a long time and you were excited about it. But if she doesn't want to be there, then it's the only possible outcome. I hope she'll be ok. And I know better days are ahead for you.
You're right. I need to give him several forms to fill out in triplicate.
Indeed. The girl is in a tough spot no matter what. While I think she made the wrong decision, it's her decision. On the bright side, there's still time to get my money back on Rosetta Stone! Considering I just dropped a sizable sum of $$ on a 10-day non-expiring parkhopper, I think I'll return it.
Sorry to hear that Chris. As others have said, it's got to be quite confusing for a 14 year old girl to visit another country and another family and grasp the fact that they want you to live with them and be your family. Something good will come from this, you just need to have a little faith.
Sweet! Do I get my own shovel to lean on?
I assume as an honorary state worker, there will be someone else I can pass this menial task on to, right?
Read your wife's blog and very sorry that it didn't happen. Your family's compassion and caring is admirable. I hope the best for her.
Nem, saw your meetup on facebook for the half; Not sure how many of us are doing the full, but let me know when you're in the bag drop area for the full if you want to meet up quick. What corral are you in?
I think you are either too late or super early!
Chris...I am so sorry to hear this!!! Those of us who have adopted know how the process is a roller coaster of emotions and we all fear the outcome that has come to be for you guys. Sure will be pryaing for you. God has a mighty plan in store for you...this heartbreak is going to prepare you in some way for what God has ahead!! Is adoption something you think you will attempt again?
