It feels so odd to say we're finally in a single digit of DAYS to our court date! It's been a loong time coming. We are trying to prepare that it COULD go perfectly and we'd pass through on the first time, and trying to prepare our hearts for the reality that lots of times it doesn't go perfectly on the first court day :).
We are anxious and ready to bring home our sweet baby girl. I was told by a friend in Ethiopia this week, that our little missy was trying to get up on all 4's...I of course told her, "knock her down and tell her to wait for her mama!" I don't want to miss one thing, especially not a biggie like a first crawl! I would be ready to get on a plane at a moment's notice if they told us we could. It's been a long 4.5 months since we first saw that sweet little face. She has grown and changed so much. I try my best to celebrate her health and the fact she's doing so well physically in Gladney's care, but the mama in me wants to shout "STOP! Just WAIT for me to get there!"
We are pray pray praying that we can hop on a plane on May 5th to begin our final leg of the journey to meet our sweet thing!
