I received an email and a phone call from WPA a few days ago. Josh and Traci, the couple that will be our coordinators, are still on their trip, but I received call from the director and he emailed me as well. It's good to know that even if our main contacts are unavailable we can still get help from someone. I feel that both LMI and WPA are probably great agencies to work with, but I'm feeling a lot more confident in WPA just because of all the online research I've been doing. There are a lot more family websites posted from WPA and they keep journals of everything that happened along the way. Sounds like there are very few surprises and they have a very high success rate with their adoptions. I'm getting a little anxious about all of this now, because as soon as we sign on we're committed... that means a little Emily will officially be in our near future. (Although I'm sure at times it will feel like it's taking forever!)
Keep us in prayer.... lots of things will be happening once the ball gets rolling on this!

Received an email from Andrea at LMI today giving some reasons why she chose LMI as an agency when she adopted... she now works for them. It was enlightening, but still not totally convinced. Waiting to hear back from WPA... my contacts are on a trip to Guatemala right now and should have contact with me soon.

Tom and I have been praying for quite a while about God's plan for our family and we are now heading toward an international adoption from Kazakhstan (Kozz-ock-ston). We are currently comparing two adoption agencies: World Partners Adoption and Little Miracles International. We are gathering as much information as possible and trying to pinpoint which agency we will go with. After that, we will begin the homestudy process and get the ball rolling to bring home our daughter, Emily, who is out there somewhere.
I emailed both agencies today and asked for a little more information from them and asked them to compare themselves to the other agency. Should hear something back from them soon.
