tripping the light fantastic.
folks, i have just two words for you today: ONE WEEK.
except actually i mean the just two words part metaphorically, as i am not all that famous for brevity.
next friday (yee-haw!) we’ll board that plane (that will take us to our next plane that will take us to the plane after that) which will jet the mister and me to east africa where we’ll get to MEET OUR SON.
i am about two percent panic, a hundred and twelve percent sheer joy. am i ready? i have no idea. but all that stuff is details-shmetails as long as we are on that plane.
i’ll be honest: there were a few times in the past eighteen months when i wasn’t sure this day would ever come. in my more sardonic moments, i envisioned creaking along in our nineties, popping in dentures to make another call just to check how that home study report was coming along. :)
one week is a beautiful thing.
elle has passing the time by purchasing a series of smallish gifts for her younger brother, one for every holiday we've spent apart. this here is an easter car (note the green, which clearly means easter). when you are six with a steady allowance and few expenses, you are free to get a head-start on spoiling your younger sibling.
happy friday, friends.
ps baby lily is healing beautifully! thank you for praying and sewing up a storm. :) please stop by lisa's blog to see updated photos.
