Hi Blog World,

I guess you can all guess that this blog no longer exist. I was really excited about documenting my journey to Aden, but my old agency ruined that experience. I have been grown for quite a long time, so I'm not so good with someone telling me what to do. I'm not into the big brother experiecne, especially when I'm paying ppl my money.

In April 2009, I left BFAS. It was not the place for me and not the place for my potential child. My soul has been free since the day I decided to part ways with them. I guess I need to let them know that I'm no longer a client, but I have no desire to even speak to them. I may drop an email. I was hoping one of their spies (clients) would tell them for me.

Anyway, on November 3, 2009, I became the mother of the most beautiful little girl in the world. Here's a pic. I adopted her thru Illien Adoptions. I applied to Illien in April. My dossier was complete on June 18th. I recieved my referral on September 15th and passed court on November 3rd. On December 5, 2009, my little girl was in my arms. Aden is the healthiest of kids. No giardia, no ringworm, no parasites, no lice and she is meeting her developmental milestones.

I suggest that ppl chose their agency wisely. THere is no reason for some of the things that happen. THe excuse of it's Ethiopia, is no excuse.

I wish all of you well on your journeys.

Congratulations. I often wondered what happened to you and your journey to Aden. What a wonderful surprise and a great way to start off the New Year. She is beautiful. May you be blessed with love, peace, joy, and sleep in the upcoming year.

Congratulations! I found that choosing an agency is probably the most challenging aspect of international adoptions. It would be great if there were reviews on these agencies that were not controlled by them so we could get the real deal. Reading a lot of blogs gave me a lot of insight during my selection process. Again, congrats!

Wow thanks for thew info. I feel better about my future adoption. Whenever I choose to finally pursue.

I totally feel you on the not being told you cant. Especially when it seems that a celebrity can.

Your daughter is beautiful!

I also switched agencies after being told I had no right to inquire. Sometimes you want something so badly you don't see the forest for the trees. But we serve our daughters well by standing up for ourselves and insisting we be treated with respect.

I've enjoyed reading your take on things. I've learned from you and you've made me think. Thank you.

Enjoy your daughter-- I wish you both the best!

THanks to you all. She is a doll and truly my meant to be. I decided that her name would be Aden, and not Eden. She's a girl who can for sure pull off Aden. :)

I realize you have left this blog, but I thought you might still get comments. My husband and I just switched countries from Nepal to Ethiopia, and our agency, Kentucky Adoption Services, does their Ethiopian adoptions through Illien. I was nervous about Illien, since I was not familiar with them, and they seem small, but everyone has been very kind over the phone. It looks like you had a good experience! We are SO excited about bringing our little boy or girl home! Our dossier should be sent to Ethiopia some time in April! :) Thanks for sharing!
