I dislike this new H@gue Plague paperwork process very much, it is not my very favorite thing, not at all. I narrowly escaped it the last two times around and now I feel like paperwork karma is biting me in the rear. It makes me sweat, it makes my skin crawl, it makes my brain hurt, it makes me not the nicest person to be around. In all this waiting we do it is hard to believe that it is our government that makes the red-tape adoption process so unbearable. Seriously if you happen to have any family situation out of the norm (like a 17 yr old son living abroad, soon to be an adult male living in our home) all of the sudden no one knows how to handle your paperwork. I have asked 3 government officers the same question and received 3 different answers about how to proceed. I have a feeling I am going to have to settle into this confusion real early on... it aint gonna be purdy :) I am vowing now not to stress the waiting this time around, I've got a few things going on to keep me busy... Anyone want to sign up to remind me of this in a few months?
