Medicals Completed!

Yahoo - another BIG step completed! The kids were taken in for their immigration medicals today. The results are sent to Trinidad (not positive what is done there) then it will be sent back to Haiti & then we should be able to travel to pick up the kiddo's. It is looking like a end of February homecoming! (disclaimer - this is Haiti, so timelines can change without notice) :)

I can't believe it. There were times during this adoption that it felt like it was never going to happen. In fact just to preserve my sanity I tried not to even imagine being at this stage or having the kids home.

The problem I have now is that I fall asleep fine but wake at 4am thinking of all that I need to do & can't seem to fall back asleep until my alarm rings at 6am & then suddenly I am very tired & just need a few more minutes of sleep. UGG

This weekend I need to paint the casings, bedroom & closet doors in the little kids room & my room. Then I need to get all my stuff out of the little kids room & quit using it as a junk room. Now where is all my stuff going to go? Obviously I don't need this stuff because it has been in there forever & I haven't had to use it, but I hate to part with it as well. Oh no - I am a hoarder. Wish me luck on parting with my junk & preparing the little kids room for our babies.

Now I need to start gathering stuff for donations for the orphanage. Not sure what I will take yet. I guess I better start practicing some Kreyol as well so at least I can get a couple of phrases out & be understood.

Hugs, Laur

We have so far still to go on our adoption journey but your post gives me encouragement to keep going - they do eventually make it home.
