20 Months!

Wow! Who would have thought when our file reached Ethiopia 20 months ago today that we'd be at this point (isn't this the gestation period of an elephant). I'm not sure how I feel about it some days. Some days I get myself worked up about the wait and then other days I tell myself to slow down and enjoy the time I have with my daughter. I'm a planner, I need to know what is going to happen and how it is going to go down. I don't like surprises really (well some surprises of course). I am just anxious to know if it is a boy or girl so I can start nesting, planning and redoing/redecorating bedrooms. I love this kind of thing. I also am just looking so forward to having my family complete and being able to move on...not having to think about paperwork, wait times, changes in the process, bankruptcy stress, etc. I just want to be. To be with my husband and children. My family completed.

We are number #24 on the single list (we were originally #43 so I am really happy about this). I think and have always thought it will be a boy. Maybe in a few more months we'll know for sure. So excited about this!

Anyways, just wanted to write a quick post. J has been sick for 6 days and I'm really tired. Here's to a great start to a new week and bring on the referrals! J & L your turn is coming, I can feel it!
