We heard today that our paperwork is impeccable and perfect, which was nice to hear, after all the work we had done to prepare it. What's not perfect is our age. We've known that Haitian law states that couples must be 35 to adopt, but had been told months ago that there were exceptions to that rule, and that we met those exceptions. But...in January a law is going to be passed changing the age to 29, an age that Sean reached just weeks ago. (Only one of us needs to be 29). One person at the agency where the paperwork has been has decided that he wants to wait until the law is passed next month before signing our paperwork. The rest of his team have signed off and it's all in his hands. The lawyer says he's doing us a favor and that this will make things go more smoothly in the next two step (yes, there are still two more steps).
We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and hope to see all of you in the new year!
The Baby Breininger Blog
Welcome friends! In 2007 we started this blog to share the status of our adoption process. After an excrutiatingly long wait, we travelled to Haiti in June 2009 and brought our girl home on July 15. Now this blog is a place for us to share pictures and videos, give updates and brag about how wonderful she is. Enjoy!
