Hurry Up and Wait Some More

We are heading into another period of waiting. But we are OK with this. I guess before I go much further, I should come up with a fake name for our future daughter. Let's just call her Sweetie. I spoke with Sweetie's therapist on the phone Friday and he was telling me how this needs to be a slow transition for Sweetie. She had one failed adoption and then more recently the family from Korea went from wanting to call her obsessively to pulling out completely. I can not imagine how difficult that has to be for a 12 year old to process. Needless to say she is going to have some trust issues and we now need to take things slow. I left a message for the foster mom today. I want to talk to her first before we set up a Skype with Sweetie. This will slow down the progress of moving her in, but that is OK. We want to make sure we do this right and give us the best chance at a smooth transition. Putting the child's needs first...that is what being a parent is all about right? Ultimately I would like to get her moved in by early her time to acclimate to us and the community, before starting a new school.More updates to come.:)
