Update on Gabriel

Standard

With the written referral we have some updated information about Gabriel. She has gained 2 pounds since we committed to her in the fall. One of her medical conditions no longer requires treatment (yeah), she is using single words, walking stably and trying to run.
I worry about her a lot. Many things indicate that she has never done very well living in the orphanage setting. The update expanded further on this and she is struggling daily. She needs out ASAP.
Leaving her is going to be extremely difficult, especially with the impending August shutdown slowing down the process to pickup. I can only hope for everyone’s sake that there are no hiccups and that everything goes as quickly and efficiently as it possibly can. By comparison we should be in a place with Gabriel’s adoption the day we arrive back home that took an additional month after we were back from the first trip with Jude’s adoption.
