Nov 1

Seems so far away.  It really seems like the dead of winter (I know it is not).  It is a special day.  My Father-In-Law's birthday.  It is now even more special... It is our court date for our little boy.  A date.  A concrete date that shows movement.  Getting him closer to being in our family.  I have gotten some darling pictures of him.  He is simply a sweet child.  It is also perfectly clear in the photos that his heart will be broken when he has to leave the beautiful orphanage director!  Ohhh goodness.   I know that he is getting the best of care and love.  Would you mind praying for his little heart?

On a lighter note...we had our travel clinic appointment.  Jason-one shot.  Me-none.  Zach-none.

77 days until we hop a plane and see our sweet boy.

For this child I have prayed.  1 Samuel 1:27

Yay! So happy for you. Last year, our court date was scheduled pretty far out, too. Those weeks flew right by and before I knew it, we were there. Oh the memories! Praying for all of you as you head into the final stretch - especially your sweet boy. :)

A date! That's awesome!

And Jennifer J, I was thinking the same thought - we received a late November court date in August and it felt so far away... then it got changed to late October and suddenly it was SOON and I was running around getting ready.

May the days pass quickly with many blessings until you hold him in your arms...
