...from the "Home Study in Progress" page to "Compiling Dossier" page on the Reece's Rainbow website! We received the rough draft of our home study last weekend, and should have our final draft in hand next week! Then we will send it to USCIS and hopefully get our fingerprints done shortly after that. I really really hope we can have our first trip to her country by August.
Each day that we wait, just makes me think that it's another dreadful and uneventful day for Darya in the orphanage. The days are all the same for her, I'm sure. She just sits or lies there waiting. For what, she doesn't know. Her next bottle? Her next diaper change? Are those the only sorts of interaction she has with her caregivers? Has she ever been outside the orphanage grounds if even for a walk? Has anyone ever rocked her to sleep or just snuggled with her? Has anyone read a book to her or prayed with her? I doubt it. It won't be much longer, sweet Darya! We'll be getting you out of there soon!!
