Update on the waiting

So I've emailed our contact at our agency and haven't heard back from her regarding our profile. Nothing. Called the lawyer back east and in the States. Nothing to report. We're still getting BM profiles, not appropriate ones, but I guess we're on the list. And thanks to Teendoc's vigilance, even contacted an adoption agency in New Jersey that is approved for Hague Convention outgoing placements. They were kind enough to provide me with a link of other appropriate agencies which I'm assuming our agency knows about. I say assuming, because they haven't called. The American agency sent me a bunch of information - the next step would be becoming a client in that State. Still have some other things I have to finish. This makes me cranky. We've got a new pup, so I guess I should update our profile, but I don't feel particulary motivated. Looking at our profile just depresses me. Yeah, I know, I'll get over it.

Well, the sun is shining and my lazy pup is stretched out on my bed dozing, got to get her up and moving. I know how to pick 'em, eh?

I'd say just keep trying to contact them. If you do it enough times, they have no choice but to contact you back, right? Doing that, can't blow up in your face, can it? I'm probably of no help, so I'll shut up and leave you with a *HUG*. I'm still here cheering you on!

You gotta put in some pics of Juno - she's such a love muffin! I'm sorry they are being unresponsive, but keep bugging them.

The people I know in real life who have adopted have told me that they bugged their agencies and caseworkers to death. Sometimes I have it in me to do that and sometimes I don't. I am thinking knitting scarves for children in an orphanage and feeding stray cats might be my calling in life. What ever happened with Juno's pending surgery? Is it scheduled?

I agree with Beautiful Mess. The squeaky wheel gets the worm, I always say.

Good luck with the motivation to work Juno into your profile.
