We moved up the list to number 2 today! There have been 3 referrals in the last 2 weeks for baby boys so we went from 5 to 3 real quick. It is gonna be soon!! I would LOVE to give Lilia a picture of her baby brother for her birthday present on the 8th. It is hard to believe we have come this far and are this close. I have a little anxiety today about everything I need to get done!! Sewing for his room, fixing the wall, etc. I keep trying to remember the time between the 2 visits.
Courts are closed August 6-September 27. So when we get a referral, we will have to wait until October for our earliest court date. Then go over to love on him and squeeze his little cheeks, then home to wait for embassy clearance (8-12 weeks). Pray for patience and for things to go a little smoother this time! We aren't allowed to post or e-mail any pictures of him until we pass court so when we get matched, everyone will have to wait for a picture!
Lilia is sick with a cough and a sore throat. Who gets sick in the summer? But the little trooper still wants to play and run around. Her birthday is next weekend and she picked Dinosaurs as her theme. She loves dinosaurs and knows pretty much everything about them. Thank you PBS Dinosaur Train! Kindergarten is starting August 23rd. I am sending my baby off to let someone else take care of her and I hate it. She needs it, but I am a little sad about it. She is really excited and can't wait!
Hopefully the next post will have some GREAT news!
