Neglect Warning!

Yes, I’ve neglected this blog.  Not that adoption work is over…. at all.  We just started our re-adoption in the State of Arizona this week.  It includes, but I’m sure is not limited to: new doctor physicals, new sets of fingerprints, court filing, more cashola, four home visits, five family photos ready at each visit and more paper work.  Why do we bother?  Because the courts in Cali wouldn’t let us change Nora’s name to the name we chose.  In Colombia the children take both the mother and father’s last names.  So the name Nikander has risen again in my life.  I thought I put it to rest 23 3/4 years ago!  But no!  Also, Nora will end up with an AZ birth certificate… WAY more easily attainable when you need original copies.  There will also be an adoption trail of court papers in America.  I’m told we will be thankful for that one day.  In AZ, the child has to be in your home for six months before the case goes before a judge.  So we’re looking at July or August for Nora’s name to be officially changed.  She doesn’t know that it isn’t Nora Linda Crosby at this time……  that’s all we’ve told her since more confusion was not necessary!  So off we go…. for more fun and paper work!
