Wow — have we been home for 10 days?  Seems hard to believe. I think we are back into home routine for now anyway. This morning we made the realization that it had been over a week since our court date – this is significant because we were told that if the judge wanted  or needed to do an extended search for the birth mother, they would call for a “public notice” for 2-3 months, but they would make that decision within one week of court. So, since we have not heard anything yet, we are hopeful that we will have the more “typical” return date of 3-5 weeks after court.  This means we could be receiving travel notice in as little as a week! (Although I am calling our “due date” June 11.)

It still seems a little unreal to be making him doctor appointments and purchasing shoes and language materials. I’m also trying to prepare myself for what is sure to be a crazy summer – but am a little unsure of how to really be ready.

Please continue to pray for:

  • A quick call back for our Visa appointment at the US Embassy
  • that our little guy is doing well, and his caregivers are preparing him for this transition
  • That we are prepared as well as possible for the transition
  • We are able to book our flights easily for our trip (and at reasonable rates)
