In our relationship, Ryan has a history of getting "gut feelings" that are always right. Unfortunately for me, he is almost always right anyway but that is a different story. He had told me about a month ago (before we sent our dossier) that he had a gut feeling that we would have our child by May. I trusted him as I always do because he is "always right." I got excited and figured that we needed to get stuff down around the house. I had a list for him to complete (which he did, thanks Ryan!) before our child came. But today is April 7th. The Minister has had our dossier for about a week. On the blogs I am reading, the Rwandan government approval is taking anywhere from 2 to 5 months. So just being a week in isn't looking so good and it isn't looking like May. Now the optimistic side of this is that our adoption process has all gone VERY quickly. We started mid-October and then our I-600 was approved in a record 2 weeks (usually 6-12 weeks approval time). So I am keeping my hope that the Rwandan approval will go quickly too.
Off to plan a jsl luncheon, adoption fundraiser and Easter dinner!
