Today we heard that Anya Rashi's passport may be ready during the last week of November. Last Friday was Diwala, and earlier in the week there was a strike in Kolkata (a fairly common occurrence), so many offices were closed -- so no passport action.
Meahwhile, we are also waiting for a form from Citizenship and Immigration, and for something called ICPC, which is an inter-state adoption permission (our adoption agency is located in Oklahoma). So, the wait goes on . . . but we still have high hopes to travel in early December. Our dream and prayer is to have Anya Rashi in our arms for her birthday on December 16.
