Yes, today is three and a half years since we started our adoption journey to bring home our little Colombian princess, Zaza.  Shoot, three and a half years ago I was close to being in my thirties!!!  Rick was in his thirties!  As I’ve said numerous times, never did we think it would take this long.  People continually ask us, “What is taking so long?”  I believe that it is the very careful Colombian government that is matching the children with their forever families, for which we are thankful and will be forever grateful to.  Our part of the deal (homestudy, dossier, doctor visits, psychological study, fingerprinting, apostilling, photos, etc.) was all completed in October 2007.  We were approved as adoptive parents by Colombia in January of 2008. We have absolutely no control over the wait time… at all.

So, for the past two weeks I’ve been sewing a dolly for Zaza… to help the time pass.  I’ve been listening to my Spanish lessons on my laptop while I sew.  The dolly body is done, complete with an embroidered pink heart.  I am currently embroidering the beautiful brown eyes and ruby-red lips.  The hair is cut and sewn on ribbons, ready to be sewn on the head.  The dress and bloomers are done.  I have yet to make the apron.  The sleeping bag and pillow are cut out and awaiting the sewing machine.  Moving right along.  Waiting.  Sometimes impatiently.

That’s all for now.  Adios, amigos.
