Got some Hep A and B shots today. Trying to make sure we have our act together just in case we pass court this week. I have been guarding my heart and trying not to get my hopes up...but...I think I let my mind start to wander into the possibility of going soon to bring the boys home.
This weekend we moved the girls into the same room and got their room all ready to become the "girl room" . And we are working on making up the "boy room". We are still short on beds and clothes but at least we have a plan now. I can only guess on their sizes and hopefully we will get some more concrete info on sizes before we travel. I need to start getting diapers again and find some sippy cups (maybe the little one still uses a bottle???). But honestly, this is the fun kind of planning. Much more enjoyable than paperwork. =)
I was able to talk to another adoptive mom who recently returned from the orphanage where the boys are and get some first hand reports on how cute our little guys are. It was the most amazing and heart warming call. I had not asked this family to "look out for our boys" but I took a chance and thought I would ask if they saw them (there are about 60 children in the transition home where our boys are, so it was a bit of a gamble if she remembered them). Turns out they were the 2 kids that stuck out in their minds the most. They were so thrilled to share that they loved on our sweet boys and how precious they are. Oh...just the kind of report a momma wants to here.
Please PLEASE PLEASE pray with us about our court date. It will be Thursday night when we are all in bed. January 15. Praying for our birth mom and trusting she will be able to travel and be at the right place at the right time. We are also praying for all the proper paperwork to be in place.
Dear Sweet Peas,
Oh...We are trying to imagine your sweet smiles and precious faces. We are so thankful you are in a place now that is preparing you for our family. We are trusting God for the right timing to bring you home. I can't wait until we can hold you in our arms and hug you in person.
