One way to look at this adoption is that we have twenty-one days until we get on a plane to meet a child who was given away because of her extra 21st chromosome.
I prefer to look at it as us having twenty-one days until we get on a plane to meet the child we have chosen, because of her extra 21st chromosome.
This package arrived at my office yesterday afternoon.
It has our travel packet from our agency!
It's got a travel guide, which is seriously broken into five chapters.
How do people do this without an agency?!
It has our program travel and post-placement information.
POST-placement! Like, AFTER she is home!!
Even just reading that makes me happy.
It also has this very official envelope with instructions to "Take to US Embasy", and contains a lot of official, important documents. I cannot believe how close we are to finally getting to this girl!
