Where in the world is Sam? Clue # 3

Are you ready for another hint in our little game? Who wants to figure out where our baby will come from?

Oh, be nice. At least feign interest for my sake, would you?

If you don't recall, the first clue was: We can choose gender in this program. I also gave an accidental second clue, which Tracy was smart enough to catch, when I said we were working on our dossier. According to her, domestic adoptions do not require a dossier, nor does Korea.

So... here is your third clue: We are not adopting from a continent that begins with the letters A, E, N, T, or B (See what I just did there? See how I intentionally threw in some nonsensical crap for no good reason? Yeah- I'm good at that. It's my gift).

Remember, the only rules are: You can guess as many times as you want, I won't reveal the winner until all the clues are given. If you already know the answer because I've told you or because you belong to the Yahoo group for this program, don't spoil it for those who want to play!

We have a tentative appointment for our first home visit with the SW on Nov. 1st and some of the 50 million documents I've had to order (birth, marriage, divorce certificates) are starting to roll in, so we are making some headway. We're far from done though. We need to get our physicals redone. We still need to get our Ii71-H changed and fingerprints redone. We're also required in this program to get a separate FBI check done, so we need to get fingerprints for that, too. I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff we still need to do. We have to compile five sets of the dossier (Oops. That may be another accidental hint- I dunno.). It's driving me nuts. I want it all done NOW. I want my baby home. I feel like I've been waiting so long already, that starting over from Square One- and the idea that our real wait is just beginning- is pretty tough to swallow. I know several of you out there know exactly how this feels.

Tomorrow we're taking the kiddos up to KC. We're going to the zoo, an arts, crafts and music festival, and visiting my MIL. BUSY!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

I am THE worst at this game, but I feel like I want to know the MOST!! So I guess South America doesn't count as starting with "A" since America is the second word. I was going to guess like an island in the Pacific but I think that would count as Asia. I just don't know...

Well it must be South America and so I'm going to guess Columbia or maybe Peru?

Rebecca said...

That was my guess! Do you know you can get more then 1 (not related) with the Columbia program--just an idea ; )

Christina said...

Okay, clearly not "A"frica or "A"sia... so that leaves Haiti, Eastern Europe (oh wait! That's an "E" isn't it? Nevermind!) and Latin America (unless that counts as an "A"?)... So we're down to Haiti or Latin America... let's pick something unusual... Panama maybe?

My guess is Peru...although Columbia was my first guess. I had Haiti on the radar but not now : )

Kelly said...

I am going with Columbia.
