Our file goes to the courts in the girls' home country! It is almost surreal, to finally have the end in sight. Please be in prayer over these proceedings, for a receptive judge and that the remainder of the processing goes smoothly.
I'm trying to pull together the last of the prep work. And fundamentally assumed I'd have a bit more time (ha ha--and ALL that I wanted was for things to move faster!) The kids and I have been moving more furniture than Rent-A-Center, and we're now ready to get the bunks up in the girls' room. Then to tackle the spare room...with spare being another term for catch-all.
These tasks, and securing a passport for a certain big sis who'll be traveling with me, are the prelude to the real fun, of getting clothing, high chair (need a fancy reclining one, not the more efficiency style I typically use), stroller for many, and car seat which will accommodate Pen's very fragile body.
Oh yeah, and in between all that, I'm supposed to Christmas shop! Wish me luck!
