Today was a hard day. Jeanien and her kids left this morning to drive back to Louisiana, and my house was MUCH too quiet with them gone. I sure am going to miss having those little ones around. I kept finding little reminders of the kids as I cleaned the house this afternoon. Just a bit ago, I unloaded the dryer and a tiny little sock fell out. Sniff. They just seem to grow up so fast when we only get to see them once or twice a year. If you aren’t all completely tired of pictures by now, here are a few more:
Also making today difficult was the fact that yesterday officially marked 6 months since we were added to the waiting list. As in HALF OF A YEAR. Reaching month #6 just makes it feel like it has been so long. I don’t even want to think about the fact that we have just barely made a dent in our estimated wait. But we are getting there, slowly but surely. Spending time with my sisters’ kids these past two weeks has been amazing and has definitely reassured us that every bit of the wait will be worth it when we are finally united with our precious little one. Kids are just amazing!
As for the Dossier, we are not quite as speedy as the Beihoffer’s who may have quite possibly set a new paperchase speed record, but we are getting there=) Still waiting on our home study addendum and marriage certificate which we had to order from Vital records in Little Rock. Oh, and a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday.
