I guess we haven't completed our family yet. Yup, that's right. We're working on another international adoption!
We weren't planning on it but when we saw his picture online we just knew he belonged with us. It was love at first sight! So we contacted the agency immediately and they sent us the application.
This IA will be very different from our last;
Then: MONTHS of paper-chasing, notarizing, state certificates
Now: Quick online application
Then: State police clearance
Now: One quick call to our reference
Now: NO SERGIE!!!!!!
Then: Long Flights
Now: Oh, yeah, still a long flight.
Then: Cute and cuddly little boy
Now: Cute and cuddly little boy.... with fur.
And here's the referral picture that started it all
His name is Benji and he's an 8-month old Sato (Puerto Rican slang for Street/Stray Dogs and pronounced "saw-toe")who has had a rough start to life on the streets of Puerto Rico. Before being rescued, he had already suffered a broken leg, and who knows what other forms of abuse, but his current foster home reports that he's a happy go lucky dog who loves everyone! We didn't set out to find a dog a few thousand miles away, but we knew as soon as we saw his picture that he was 'the one'. And they say lightning doesn't strike twice?!
So in less than 2 weeks, the wonderful people who saved Benji from a hopeless life will put him upon a freight plane (who is so generously donated their services to fly these dogs for free) and he'll make the long journey to his new home where 2 little kids eagerly await his arrival!
