Lilypie - Waiting to Adopt

Traveling soon?

I  haven't posted in a while but wanted to let everyone know that I should be traveling to meet my little guy soon. I am currently waiting to be assigned a court date. I have been so busy with life that I haven't been dwelling on this next step. I felt peace knowing that each day that passed brought me closer. Last week I got a jolt when a friend in my similar situation received her court date. The jolt came when I learned that she had one week's notice for court. Wowsers!  I am so happy for this friend and it brings me joy to know that she is getting to spend time with her little guy and mine.

News of her court date reminded me that mine should be happening soon. Yay! It also reminded me of all that I need to do to prepare for travel. I have been asked to bring donations with me. If you are inclined to help, please look at the list and let me know.

Thanks for stopping in for an update. I simply CAN NOT wait to bring him home. I praise God for this new chapter in my life. Thanks for sharing my joy and for your prayers!
