There might be some hope....



(KITCHENER) July 30 – Families impacted by the recent bankrupcty of Imagine Adoption voted today at the first creditors' meeting held in Kitchener-Waterloo to work with the bankruptcy trustee BDO Dunwoody to present a proposal to rescue the agency from bankruptcy. Work on the proposal should be completed within the next two to four weeks.
I f the proposal is accepted by the court, the restructured agency will continue to work to complete the adoptions of families registered with the agency prior to the bankruptcy.

"What a moving moment it was to see all 189 people present vote in favour of working towards taking the agency out of bankruptcy," says Christine Starr, chair of Families of Imagine Adoption, a group which has been working to achieve completion of all the adoptions registered with Imagine. "But this is just a first step towards the completion of all files. There is much more work to be done."

Still no answers...

I have no news to tell anyone about our adoption. We still don't know if it's still going to happen or not. I'm hoping to find out more infromation on friday. We like most adopting parents are getting fusturated with all the waiting. I just want to know either way. I just feel like the gov't is slowly ripping the band aid off and all I want is a clean rip off. If it's a go then tell me, if it's a no then TELL ME!

Another hard night.....

It seems that I'm doing okay then the next min I'm crying all over again. I know that there's been so much done in the last few weeks....and I'm really trying to keep positive about it. I just can't seem to tell my heart that is in so much pain that there will be a good outcome to this. I have to walk by the room I started for our children and wonder WHEN are they coming!!!!

I'm so sick of hearing "everything happens for a reason".....What the hell?????? What is the reason why we all have to go through this?? I can't seem to understand why.....why the hell anyone would do this to a living soul.

I just don't understand how people in this world can be so could Imagine let this happen to so many of us. How can they play with people’s lives like this?

Finding it hard to keep positive.....

I'm trying to keep my faith that something good will come of this but I'm finding it harder and harder as the days keep passing. There are so many people out there that have no idea about adoption let alone internationally adoption. I seem to be defending why we made our choice of international over domestic more these days. I just wish that I could play a recording of our answer so I don't have to keep repeating myself over and over again. This situation doesn't just affect TJ & affects our mothers, sisters, brother, nieces, friends and the list goes on.

How do you think it was to tell our mothers the children we hoped to be their grandchildren might never come??? How can you tell my heart that the dream of having a family one day might never come????? How do I get over the guilt that is my entire fault for not being able to have children???

So tell me how to be positive during this time....because today I can't seem to see pass the darkness that I'm in.

Some dreams don't come true.

Hi Everyone,

TJ and I wanted to let all of you know that our adoption process for Ethiopia is now over. We were informed that our agency has just filed for Bankruptcy. We don't see that we will regain our money that we have paid for the process. We are not sure of what the future holds for us as we invested all of our funds into this adoption. We are completely devastated right now. We wanted you to know what has taken place but ask if you could let us contact you about this matter as it's going to be a very raw conversation for us at this time. TJ and I need time to grieve the loss of a dream of a family we wished for.

Thank you,

Kelly and TJ
