Or rather an non-update update.
J #6's file was released from his assigned agency on Monday afternoon.
It's Friday and I got nuthin.
No idea where his file is right now, it was supposed to be headed directly to our agencies individual list but no confirmation yet that that has happened.
It takes a bit, I totally understand...
but I ain't gonna lie. Part of me is sooo nervous that his file is sitting out there in shared list land at the availability of many, many different agencies. .
And that would be...well....let's not go there.
We haven't come this far with this precious son of ours to lose him now but gracious what a couple of little letters like
would do for my heart right about now!
His birthday is coming up on September 2, he will be turning 7 and I really, really wanted his first family package to reach him by then but tick, tock....
don't know if we will be making that.
The boys' orphanage is very new to international adoption and apparently the orphanage is a bit backed up in delivering care packages to the kiddos in the foster homes, so even though we will use a courier she can only get it as far as the orphanage and then it's up to them for delivery.
Birthday Plan A is a package and a cake.
Birthday Plan B is just a cake as that bypasses the need for the orphanage staff to deliver.
It's lookin more and more like Plan B may just be it.
One way or another this little boy is going to soon know that our crazy family is madly in love with him, and for that I cannot wait!
