Well we have been in the midst of finishing up more paperwork, this time for the final approval and the ‘go-ahead’ to fly out to get our kids. As if 5 years of paperwork wasn’t enough we are needing to repeat all that information in a nice little package that finally solidifies the fact that a) We are not weird psychopaths, b)We really are serious about this adoption thing and c)These kids (who now have names) are really orphans and we are not buying them in the black market. (Wait, is this last one a thing? Because 5 years was a long time…Kidding, just kidding please don’t write me any letters). That sounds horrid! Anywhoooo, we really thought we were done with the paperwork but here we are checking and re-checking more information and filling and re-filling documents upon documents not to mention writing one check after another. That’s the part that’s got us as stressed as a pink slip holding person who just bought a house. We had to buy new beds and mattresses and linens and holy crap if you have stock with Amazon we are doing you a solid. Yup, still a little salty I didn’t win the megabillions but at least we have our health and family and friends blah, blah, blah #blessed (said with rolling eyes). A billion though!! Moving on! We just finished our announcement cards with a photoshoot we did as a family a few weeks back and they came out so cute and although we have not gotten the cards back to send out, if you are reading this blog you get a preview of one of the pictures, you are welcome. I have also decided that while we are en-route and in Peru I will be doing a vlog right here instead. So you will get to experience the journey we will be on in a nice little video blog. It will be just as raw and real as I write but I must warn you, in real life I drop way more many F-bombs and there is no return button soooooo it is what it is people. I am really not sure what all the feels are going to be in this journey so we will ALL discover (icy heart) Jessica in a NEW situation together, yeeeeyyy! Fingers crossed for the state department to give as the go-ahead soon!
Ok I lied, I’m showing you 3 🙂
