So…. Our paperwork was finally “presented” to the Colombian authorities. I’m not sure what the difference between “presenting” and just turning stuff is, but oh well. It was supposed to be turned in two weeks ago, but there were problems with the courts, and Colombian three-day weekends and “legalizing” things whatever that means. Actually I know what all that means, it means a great opportunity for me to practice staying calm while things go wrong left and right. But anyways… TODAY our stuff is turned in. Now we wait to see whether Colombia thinks we are fit parents…and if they do we get on the WAIT LIST FOR A BABY. Surreal.
