The affidavit arrived today from our lawyer in Uganda. This means he is ready to petition to court for our case. We will overnight the signed copy to our adoption agent and then she will ship our entire home study to him. In about ten days it will arrive, and then he makes our court appointment! Hooray. This is the very beginning of the end of our whole adoption process. It’s an encouragement.
Last year when we began this whole process we figured we would have spent the summer in Uganda doing this legal bit. We never could have known all the twists and turns that would occur in between our high hopes and this good news. Yielding to God’s timing is not always easy when you’re in the midst of it because the emotion bubbles to the top, and pops a big splash over good intentions. Now as we look back we can see how our faith was strengthened through it and I’m thankful for those sessions with God.
I was feeling squirmy waiting for it all day so I hopped onto my cruiser bike and did my errands. This is the first week that the weather in Houston is just below 80 degrees. It’s a welcome relief. The retail therapy at target buying jammies for Kira and onesies had a good effect on my over all outlook. I detoured over to gymboree while I felt good and had some more fun. I found a velour long sleeved, footed outfit thatwill be perfect for the cold plane ride back to America with a wiggly busy baby bouncing between our laps. I have a definite syle of my own happening in my closet, and I am noticing as I assemble the first collection for Kira, there are evident parallels. I am going to have an awful good time dressing a little girl.
