On Our Way To Permanence

Today at 11:30AM we'll meet with a NY Surrogate Court Judge who fill finalize our adoption. Who knows what paperwork we'll walk away with but at least it will all eventually show up, sometime, somewhere. The picture below was taken in Ethiopia the day of our US Embassy appointment when Ash's IR4 Visa was approved and we were given clearance to bring him back to the US with us as our son. Sometime later today a picture will be taken of the 3 of us, all of us US citizens, all of us as permanent as permanent gets.

This must be such a wonderful feeling. I'm sorry you're having a problem with the paperwork (go figure!)...but, soon it will all be in the past! :)

TODAY is a beautiful thing. I'll be praying for you (wishing I was there to celebrate!) and know this will go down as a very special day in Ashton's history. This is the day the Lord has made - REJOICE! I love you all and we'll celebrate lots of things when we come out in 55 days! Yes, I'm counting!
