The Longest Three Weeks

We got new photos of Elvie today.  They are not very recent, but more recent than any of the others we have.  In three of the four, she is sleeping.  In the only one in which she is awake, she looks sad.  If I could get on a plane right now and go to her, I would.

As it is, there are three more weeks to go.  I was nervous before, about getting everything done and ready and being prepared for the certain lack of sleep to come, but now I don't care about any of that.  What we don't have, we can get.  There's a Safeway and a Walgreen's just up the street.

Twenty-one days.  Heaven help me.

  1. I can't imagine what it must be like to have to wait when you already know which child you're bringing home. We only had to wait 5 days with our oldest (we went the foster adopt route) and had so much to do it flew by. I can't imagine three more weeks. Hang in there!
