Signing the acceptance papers
While I was driving to our social worker's office this morning to drop off the acceptance papers, I got the phone call from the International Pediatrician that I had been waiting on. I had honestly been dreading that call, because our initial consultation with her after our first referral was filled with gut wrenching words like "nutritionally wasted", "malnourished," "HIV," "failure to thrive," and "developmental delays." We went from hopeful to scared over the course of that phone call, and I was afraid she would find something in the report that we had missed this time and I'd be in for another scary phone call. Well, that did not happen! She said that this little girl looks pretty healthy. She feels that this baby might be a little older than eight months and she estimates that she is anywhere from 8-12 months old. We are fine with that, and that is not enough of a variance for us to bother with changing her birthdate. We are so thankful that she is healthy and that the nannies are taking good care of her!
