1st post adoption visit complete!

China requires post adoption visits (to be conducted by our home study agency) at 1 month, 6 months, one year, 2 years, 3 years and 5 years. Today we completed our 1 month visit. I have to say we passed with flying colors! The case worker was amazed at how well Shi Yu was bonding and how far she had come in such a short period of time. She told us of a couple other families that were struggling. She said the fact that we had such flexible expectations really was very helpful. I guess some families have certain expectations and when they aren't met they get frustrated. I told her we really wished that we had adopted Shi Yu as well as a sister around her age and were slightly still considering it. If we adopted from China it would have to be done asap because of my age. She asked if we would be interested in adopting from Ohio as there is no age limit and we said we might consider it. I would really prefer to adopt from China again for Shi Yu's sake but it us so costly. Good was amazing in helping us with Shi Yu's adoption. Maybe he will help us again. Time will tell but I won't be surprised if Shi Yu eventually has a sister around her age. ; )
