finally - fees!

Although the IRS hasn't been cooperative with our tax return, a helpful influx of cash has made it possible for us to send the next installment of our agency fees ($3,000) to our agency.  We are excited to be able to make a dent in the adoption expenses in spite of our continued wait on the IRS. 

We also continue to hope and pray that the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) will meet quickly to approve our initial paperwork to adopt our son and let us finish the dossier.  I know our agency believes we are in "good shape" but we still want that assurance that his file will be set aside for us to continue on this path.  I keep hoping for an email at any moment from our agency, but it hasn't come yet.  With the time difference between Bulgaria and the East Coast, coupled with the time difference between our time zone and our agency's time zone, we're pretty certain the MOJ could not have met today.  Tomorrow perhaps?  It is tough, even at this early stage, to wait and hope and wait some more. 

Luckily (sort of) I have a very busy day with my daughter tomorrow.  It will be a whirlwind of therapists and then a preschool visit in the evening.  We have appointments at 9 AM, 10:30 AM, 3 PM, 4:30 PM and then at 5:30.  I won't have time to wallow in uncertainty with a schedule like that!  And if tomorrow is not "the" day, then I will be too busy on Wednesday to worry.  Thursday will arrive before I know it - maybe it will be Thursday!

Today we are simply thankful that we have additional funds to continue to pay our fees.  We will keep moving forward.  We are one day closer to traveling to our child...whenever that day is, we are one day closer.
