We have completed the interview process! That was one of the most stressful things either of us have had to endure EVER. Nearly 6 total hours of discussion and questions. Our second day went MUCH more smooth after explaining to our interviewer that we are pursuing a specific child that we have CHOSEN. Whose file we requested and studied. Who we felt was our DAUGHTER.
We made sure to refer to her and our case when answering the questions. We tried to lessen the hypothetical questions that were being presented by referring to her file and showing them her photo.
This urgency we showed seemed to change the mood of the interview altogether. It went much better - more focused.
At the end of the time, the interviewer told us that she would want to skype again Monday afternoon so that she can go over her notes and discuss her 'findings' with us.
Between now and then, I must complete some paperwork and get it to our agency, so that they can send it on to her country. (Email, thank goodness.)
Praying for peace and for the heart of our interviewer. Please God, help her to see the love we have in our hearts for this darling girl.
We appreciate ALL your prayers and concerns.
