I’m planning a difficult call to my agency tomorrow. I have no desire to waste our time and money on another referral that is clearly inappropriate for us. I’ve been up all night thinking about it, and will not continue travelling throughout the wilds of Ukraine without a strong assurance that we are going to meet a child that meets our specified requirements.

Sounds cold, but this is not a process for the faint of heart. I can be a tough bitch at times, and it looks like this is going to be one of them. Yep, any of you who know me well, know exactly what I’m talking about.
