tomorrow

Tomorrow is a semi-big day.

Our Child Finder Interview takes place at the Embassy tomorrow. This is when the person who found our girl will go to the Embassy officials and provide details about how, when, and where she was found. We are praying the interview goes well and provides great answers to the officials who are reviewing our case. I'm not sure that I'll hear anything from them after the interview, but I will probably check in with them afterward just in case they want to share any info with me.

Also tomorrow, I will officially hit my GOAL in this pregnancy: 34 weeks! Anything past tomorrow is bonus, according to my doctor. That means that, theoretically, I can have this baby any day. I will wait until my doctor's appointment Wednesday to determine whether or not I need to get one more progesterone shot, but the mere thought of being done with shots AND having a newborn baby girl in our home soon is thrilling! Also, the thought of lying on my stomach or even flat on my back is exciting. I know I shouldn't complain about sleep because it's about to get a WHOLE LOT WORSE, but at this point I am getting my best (only?) sleep from 6 to 7:30 AM. It's the little things, people.

Also tomorrow, Round Two of swimming lessons. I lost Round One in an epic battle of sheer emotion and will power. One of my children, who shall remain nameless at this point, is quite a challenge in new social situations. He may or may not have cried throughout ALL of his last lesson until I finally sat him down on the sideline. (He loves to swim, so I'm sure it wasn't from water anxiety.) And I may or may not have cried in frustration over how hard it is to parent him sometimes (and I suppose hormones and the continual letdown over the adoption situation in DRC might be partially to blame, too).

Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't mention my hope that tomorrow is the day we finally hear that Exit Letters are being issued for waiting children in DRC. It has been too long since we've heard good news regarding Exit Letters...
