Visa Appointment in 20 Minutes

Did anyone else not sleep very well the night before the Visa appointment? I went for a run this morning with a good and hellish uphill portion to help settle my nerves, but I still feel jumpy and weepy.

This has been such a long road for us to get here. Please say a prayer or cross your fingers for a successful appointment.

Don't worry, be happy
Everything's going to be alright

I have a good feeling about this all. I see us on schedule, bringing our son home next week, and the only thing possibly going wrong is me sneaking my loud Hawaiian print shirt into our luggage when we travel to Florida.

Do you remember when you first took up running? Or scheduled the 5K run? Or how long last week's 10K run looked at first? Now look at you. You are faster, stronger, and confident. The adoption process has been similar- it looked ovewhelming but you kept at it, kept on top of it, didn't lose focus, and you are now near the very end. It may look difficult, but you will make it through. And your strength may suprise you!

-One Proud Mr., who just knows everything is coming together

Your Mister is one great guy. :)

Yep to all of the feelings. I don't think I slept much at all those nights before we left. And weepy? Oh my heavens. I cried about anything and everything! Most of it didn't even make sense but anything could trigger a tear fest from me. :)

I think I was just so overwhelmed with the reality of things after waiting so long. It just kind of all hits you and I found I had to make sticky notes to even remember anything. My girls still laugh at the sticky notes, but it was one way I could cope with life before pick up. ;)

The good thing is it does pass once you get that babe in your arms. :) So hang in there for this final stretch. You're almost home now!!!!

So, so, so, hope that Visa is in Marie's hands and you can book yourself some plane tickets to pick up that sweet boy. Keep us posted.

Lord, I ask that You will move in this Visa appointment. May everything go smoothly and well. Amen.

I wish there was a way to fix this for you! I hate to just keep abusing the word HOPE! Sadly that is all we have, this sliver of hope that we hang onto that keeps us going enough to face the mounting set backs! Well hope and of course those amazing Haitian babies that we have all fallen madly in love with and will never stop fighting for no matter how tough the going gets!! Selfishly as I sit back and listen to your anguish I can't help but think what lies ahead for us? I have never been a part of something that is so unbelievably amazing and stressful at the same time! I'm pulling for you and think of you holding those gorgeous boys. your due for some good news and I sure hope that you are in Florida next week hugging on Miles!

I enjoy your blog, and wish you all of the best as the journey to bring Miles home is hopefully at the final stages!

Take care of yourself,
