Just as I thought we were finishing up
the last of our education,
I realized I'd forgotten one small thing...
our Hague-compliant training.
Small as in $175.00
and 8 hours of education
for both Andy & myself.
The cool part is that I'm about
half way through and I've really enjoyed it.
I've learned a lot!
for every 3.4 months a child spends
in an orphanage, they will fall approximately
1 month behind developmentally.
Note to friends:
If you're ever on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire
and the category is international adoption trivia,
call me, I'll be worth your lifeline! ; >
With all the paperwork and studies
I thought I needed a little reward.
My little reward came in the form
of a very adorable little Korean girl, Tessa.
I spent the morning with a sweet friend
and her 14 month old princess. :)
Which reinforced the message that with
proper love and attention these adopted
children make huge progress once home.
Tessa has blossomed from a solemn baby
to a chubby cheeked, bubbly personality,
head strong toddler.
Emily Margaret, I can't wait for you to meet
Tessa, she's the very definition of spunky! :)
That's all for tonight,
I'll update you on our progress.
Please keep our adoption and baby girl in your prayers.
God's blessings! Sarah :D
