Well, tomorrow is the big day...the one-way-or-another resolution of the question as to whether or not our dreams of adopting will someday materialize. Tomorrow is the last day that families are able submit their new retainer agreements and half of their additional fees to the new Imagine Adoption. The critical number of families needed is 200.
I was encouraged last week about the likelihood of success by a comment made to me by Imagine's staff (see earlier post); and I was encouraged again by Friday's email update from Imagine stating that they anticipate good news to come from the Board of Directors early this week. It feels like the four and a half endless months since we learned on July 13th of Imagine's bankruptcy are about to come to a close and we can look forward again with anticipation to the coming months and, eventually, to seeing pictures of our Ethiopian-born children. Assuming we receive good news from the Board in the next day or two, I really want to remember how it feels, to know that the nightmare that began on July 13th is finally over. I can hardly wait!
