31 Dec


We are welcoming a new year with the hope that we will spend eleven of the twelve months in 2013 with our daughter. Currently we are anxiously awaiting our court date. The hope is that it falls in February! That means we are down to a one-month wait. One month sounds manageable. Her room is ready, and we are more than ready. I love peeking in her room at different times of the day to imagine her in there playing, sleeping in a warm bed, reading, smiling, and laughing. The granny blanket on her bed is perhaps my favorite item in her room so far.

I will try to do a better job of documenting our journey over the next month. It seems more productive to stare at the gorgeous smile on our little one’s face than to write about how painful this wait is. We will see what unfolds in the next few weeks!

    I know another family who is also in the waiting process for their court date to bring home their son from Uganda. I wish you and your growing family much love and many happy memories in the days and weeks to come!

      Thank you! This round of waiting is by far the most challenging. Encouraging thoughts are much appreciated. : )

      Thank you, Steve! We are over the moon! I may send you an email once we have a court date. We are a bit nervous about making sure we have everything for our trip. I hope all is well with you and your kiddos!
