She is officially our daughter. I wish I could whisper in her ear how her life is about to get really blessed. Actually I received a beautiful picture of my friend Genet who is now in Ethiopia with "T" in her arms and they are cheek to cheek. It makes me so happy to see a friend holding our daughter. I wish I could post it!!!! And I still can't post her name until she is in my arms.
We could travel anywhere between last week of July to the 2nd week of August. It can't come soon enough for me. She is still chunky with full cheeks and still has hair (I'm so glad it is not shaved yet ... I hope they don't do that).
We can't plan travel until we hear of an embassy date (could take 2 weeks) then travel about 3 weeks from then. I have so much to do to tie up loose ends here and buy her mattress and get some more of my Mom friends to pass on their outgrown girl clothes to me. My friend around the corner is loaning me a white crib, which is just what I was hoping for because her crib in the orphanage is white so I want to keep some familiarity for her.
So much to think about and plan ...
