One would think that word of the ARC approval would have been cause for relief and celebration, but it had the opposite effect on me for some reason. I experienced several weeks of health problems--heart palpitations, hyperventilating, headaches, toe going numb. It was a little scary, but the symptoms have gone away, so I guess it was all related to anxiety. The thought of going through another long wait with the NOC absolutely terrified me.

Fortunately, we were blessed with an immediate approval by CARA. Our case arrived at CARA for NOC--No Objection Certificate--on July 23, 2013 and we were approved on July 24, 2013. Our orphanage received and signed the NOC on July 30, 2013, and we were given the good news on July 31, 2013. The Irish families received NOC on the same day as well! Our paperwork is traveling together from agency to agency! Receiving the No Objection Certificate means that lnd!a does not object to our adoption, and the children are ours. They cannot be given to another family! Next step is court in the children's state.
