When Justin and I began to talk about beginning the adoption process again there were many things to consider. We both feel that going back to the Vladivostock region is appropriate, and there was no way we could go back to that region and not work with Irina and Lana. These two ladies have a very special place in our heart and we look forward to working with them again. Our first adoption was completed with Children’s Hope International. We had a successful experience and they were very professional. We have learned however that Irina and Lana now work with World Links International Adoption agency. This agency is accredited in Russia. We did some research and were pleased with the experiences we heard/read about. So this time we will be partnering with World Links and Irina and Lana to become a family of 6!
On a side note, I called this morning about our IL State Police clearance letter. The lady was very pleasant and said she would mail out a notarized copy today. It was almost as if correcting this mistake is a daily occurrence for them. Unfortunately Justin’s clearance hasn’t arrived yet so I am sure I will be making another call shortly to get his resent. Thankfully at this point it really isn’t that big of a deal.
Reminder to self: Don’t sweat the small stuff!
