A week after getting home I decided to send her a lengthy detailed e-mail about our experience and asked a ton of questions as well. Here's the first reply from her:
"Wow, Geochick, that's quite an e-mail. Give me a couple of days to get back to you."
I finally got an e-mail back from her detailing all their ups and downs so far and it was pretty interesting to read her perspective. One of the most interesting comments was that she said she thought adopting internationally would involve less drama than domestic. I'm just the opposite - somehow I got it in my head that adopting domestically would be easier than international.
Really, anyway you slice it, both paths are difficult and there's still a ridiculous number of hoops to jump through.
