I was laughing to myself about how I just want to tell everybody I talk to about our adoption. When someone says "How are you?" My answer is "Great, did you hear that we are adopting from Liberia?" I somehow fit it into every conversation, even with strangers. My friend treated me to a pedicure on my birthday (which was AWESOME by the way) and even the girl working on my feet got to hear about our plans. A part of my heart and mind are always in Liberia.
I hope our son never doubts our love for him, but I think I'll print off this journal for him to read someday so he can see how excited I was for him to join our family.
On Friday, we will be going into the immigration office to get fingerprinted.. We are STILL waiting for New Jersey to send Pat's birth certificates a month later. (Anybody know anyone who works w/ birth certificates in NJ?????) We can't mail our dossier until we have them in hand. I know there is a purpose to delays, but I'm still praying BIRTH CERTIFICATES, BIRTH CERTIFICATES, BIRTH CERTIFICATES : ) I'll do a happy dance when they come in the mail.
