"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know,
and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

Fingerprints, Travel Date & Pure Joy

We were able to get our fingerprints done on Friday, so that was a huge relief. It was a VERY hard, frustrating journey to get to that point so it was such a relief when we finally had them done. Now we are waiting anxiously for the important document that allows us to travel. We really hope that we will be able to get it this week sometime because...

We have a travel date!!! And it's in two and half weeks! Two and half weeks! Which brings us to the...

PURE JOY and utter excitement. In only two and half weeks, we will be meeting our son, we will be holding him in our arms! What a dream come true. I cannot even begin to explain how excited we are.

Sean, you have no idea as you lay there in your crib tonight, that in only two and half weeks, your mama and daddy will be there... you have no idea that you even have a mama and daddy. You have no idea how loved you are. You have no idea how wanted you are. You have no idea how much you life is going to change in just a couple of weeks. We cannot wait for the moment we finally get to hold you in our arms and bring you home, to your home... a home filled with love, possibilities and one that will allow you to pursue all your dreams. We love you.
