Next Week

So today I got an email stating that next week they hope to send me a photo of my little daughter. My daughter. I held my breath for a while so that I wouldn't scream and wake my boys. I am so excited.
First though- Next week could mean 2 or 3 weeks later in African time but that is so much quicker than I ever expected. I had been waiting so long that I wasn't expecting a photo until January or February. Now that still could happen. But I felt so good to see that it could be as soon as next week.
The crazy thing is that we will be in Hawaii next week. Thank goodness for emails. I hope to be emailed a picture soon. What an awesome week that would be. Spending time on a beach in Hawaii with all of my family and being able to share a photo of our daughter.
Everyone keep us in your prayers. Especially our little daughter.
Thanks!!

it does take time to get used to the "daughter" word :)and "my daughter" is even more amazing. Make sure you video tape the moment you open that email. I love the video we have of that particular adoption milestone!

Can't wait! Have a wonderful trip!!

quick question (first time on your blog...sorry). Did you already get your approval or is it happening all at once for your family? was the email from the government or from your agency? Our family is waiting for our referral so I'm curious about other people's process. THanks!

Congratulations Jamie. That is wonderful news. I hope that week is really only a weeks instead of 3-4 weeks. I love my daughter so much that I know it's meant to be. You will feel the same way. Especially when you go to court and everything is finalized. Alissa is mine, all mine, and nobody can take her away from me. :)
