The Sixth Child

Earlier this week I mentioned that our agency had informed us about a 3.5 year old girl.

We had asked about this child back in March, but, at that time, two families had her file and we did not want to compete with other families again. For reasons of their own, the two families decided they did not want to pursue her.

Is it because she is 3.5? Is it because they wanted a younger child? We do not know their reasons. But, I suspect it is because, in the end, she is meant to come home to us.

She is the sixth child whose file we have poured over. She is the fourth child whose file I have sent off to be examined by an International Adoption Doctor, and my family doctor, and my uncle's brother-in-law who is a doctor.

The sixth child.

We like to say that the third time is a charm. But, THIS time, we are hopeful, it's the sixth time that is a charm.

Nothing is written in stone today. Our agency still has to talk to our social worker before they give us the final okay.

I am waiting for one more telephone call from the International Adoption Doctor, but, she would have to tell me something shocking about the new information I have given her.

The Sixth Child's name is Lan.
