Wait...wait...wait...Hurry, hurry, hurry!

International adoption can be a funny thing. There is the hard work of gathering and properly completing paperwork, and then months and months of waiting. The excitement of a referral yields to the anxious waiting for the official declaration of family relations. After all the waiting that brought us to our court day today, we have been told that we need to hurry and complete another document in order for our case to be processed. Until this newly required (as of yesterday) document is completed, our case is closed. So tomorrow, we will scurry and sign and seal and deliver . . . and then we will wait again!

oh.

I thought of you today. I knew the time was coming for court.

Timing is everything. I am praying that everything with homes, jobs, and family lines up well. It will.

Keep preparing for the new ones. You WILL have your hands full! In a great way.
