Just FYI, if you get a week's notice to fly 6,000 miles to visit with the child you've been trying for almost a year to adopt and to go to court in her country to be awarded custody of her, that week will probably fly by. I'm just saying. . .
We have six days until we leave. And our flight out is at 6:00 in the morning. As in, it leaves at 6:00 in the morning. So we will need to get up at o'dark thirty that day to get to the airport. Have I mentioned that I'm working until the day before we leave? And working a lot to try to get everything situated before I go. We'll get it all done though, I have no doubt. This weekend I plan to knock out everything on my to-do list, and we'll be in great shape.
My little Oompa Loompa!
My little Oompa Loompa had his play debut last night, and he did an AMAZING job!
I am so, so proud of him for trying out, practicing so hard, doing such a great job, not getting scared, and for really genuinely enjoying it so much.
This is such huge progress for him, and I am so glad he participated. I really think it's been an enormous confidence booster for him.
The play was Willy Wonka, Jr., and it was cute. The kids all did a really great job. I love our school, and all of the things they have for the kids to participate in.
His final performance is tonight! This weekend? A birthday surprise for the Oompa Loompa and getting the rest of our donations and gifts for our trip!
