Our paperwork will go TOMORROW!!! After a loooooong day of driving back from Alabama (think screaming, crying little boys that did not want to be strapped in car seats ALL day) I had to go by the old house and check the mail. My hand started shaking when I saw we got something from US citizenship and immigration. I open and it is our 1-600A approval!!!!! Almost 12 weeks to the day from when we were fingerprinted we finally get our approval. For the past 6 weeks I have been looking for this lone piece of paper that is a "notice of favorable determination concerning application for advance processing of orphan petition." Needless to say, after 6 weeks of dissapointment, I started bawling as I read it. (the loooong car trip after burying my Grandma yesterday no doubt may have affected my emotions) But, at the same time, when you are forced to wait for something, it makes getting it that much sweeter. Kinda a tribute to adopting a child, no? All this waiting, praying, hoping and wishing for Leah has got me loving my sweet little girl so much I can hardly stand it. Now our paperwork will (finally) be going to South Korea tomorrow to await being matched with our little girl. Next up, the phone call that will change our lives. (in 4-8 short months from now)
And you know what? I just can't wait!
