really agree with that but I do know
That it takes a village to adopt a child!
(I'm going to vent here a bit)
When we prepared our dossier we had to have 3 reference letter/forms
filled out by a neighbor, and 2 friends and sent to our home study agency
a few months later- we had to have 3 busy people (teacher, friend, and
son) write AND notarize reference letters for our dossier
Oh and we also had to bother the "guardians" of our children to write a
letter AND reveal personal things about their family JUST IN CASE my
husband and I would not be able to care for our children AND notarize
that....never mind that we already have a legal will to take care of that.
The people were more than gracious and provided our letters.(thanks guys)
I thought I was finished bothering people for this adoption. until...
I decided maybe we should apply for some grants....because it would
help to have some of those plane tickets covered (thankfully just 2 this
time) or a portion of the 35,000 RMB until I looked at the grant forms
They TOO, want at least three reference letters from busy people.....
I don't mind doing the detailed list of how we spend our money or
writing our personal testimonies.....but bugging other people to write
nice letters about us is just hard.
So I guess I'll get back to my quilts and stop complaining..Yes it has all the brand names on it and it is for somebody in that company .
