Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.... I don't believe I am writing this!! Keith is upstairs reading Sam a bedtime story, we just got home from a crazy night of pizza with a 3, 5, & 7 year old, we are coming off a hugely emotional week for reasons too personal too share... and NOW THIS!
My wonderfully loving, and oh-so-hard-working lawyer/agency director just emailed to say that we were OUT of Family Court... I didn't even know we were "in" for sure! And just like that... just like THAT, we have her blessings to plan a trip to meet Luciana... to meet our daughter... am I repeating myself?
(to clarify: this trip is a visit only, we will not be bringing her home)
I am fighting every urge to run upstairs and tell Keith what has happened, but it will be way to confusing for Sam... and if you could only hear the giggles coming from this less than calming bedtime routine, you would know that there is no way I could interrupt... but, MAN, could he wrap it up and get to the "happily ever after" of it all because I am losing my mind with JOY... and the every other emotion you yourself are wondering about with this whole "go meet your baby and then come home without her" concept!
For now, let's just be thrilled and celebrate that this much anticipated green light has come! Oh so much love, love, love. Luciana, we are on our way!
(2 notes: Eli's Mom.... thank you for your wonderful emails... I promise to sit and take some time to reply... it meant so much to hear your story and I want to take some time to get back to you. You are so wonderful.
SBP- You are a dream and I am too lucky to have you think of BOTH of my children in such a caring way... how did you find the "peaches" hat!?!??! You rock!)
