Quietly Waiting

We are still in waiting mode. We are told that there is a possibility that we could again have a shot at court on the 25th. If this happens, then we could possibly travel within 2 weeks (if the 30-day wait is waived) or in 30 days.

Certainly, the sooner the better but if not, I am determined to book a flight to see Dylan on the 3rd week of May. You see, I will be starting my leave from work regardless of what happens with this adoption. I hired a contractor to fill in for me a while back. We committed to her for 14 weeks. At the time, we didn't figure that we would be suffering through all these delays. No one knew and I really didn't have much of a choice. I could not just leave my job unfilled so we had to find someone and make the commitment.

Who knows? Maybe things happen for a reason. I have never had a break from full-time work since I was 20 years old. I am freaked out by the prospect that I could have this kind of open-ended time off. However, I am excited as well. If nothing else, I could go and see Dylan. Did I mention that I was approved by our agency to go and see him even before our real pick up date?

It's a bit hard on the savings account but we are willing to give this a go and try and make this work. After all, if this little piglet was waiting for you, could you stand to wait quietly?

Ivy he is so beautiful. I would be ready to take the extra trip too if I were in your shoes. Kim H has been thinking about going as well. Maybe you could plan together. She is in the same boat as you.

Ivy,
The video is sooo cute! I love his smile! Thank you for sharing. I have faith you will be doing a pick up trip instead of just a visit trip in a few weeks! He is just precious, I am so happy for you.

Toooooo Cute Ivy!!! I'm particularly impressed that Bill is willing to resort to babytalk to get him to perform for the camera :) I can't wait for the post that says you are cleared to bring him home. Best, Clare

What an expressive adorable little guy! I am so glad you can at least go visit him if this mess doesn't get cleared up soon. And I can tell that daddy is absolutely head over heals for his little buddy :) Hang in there, you're getting close!

You can tell how much you guys love him on the video, little M was enthralled watching it with us, strange but he always reacts very excitedly to pics or videos of Kyrg babies...we loved watching him and seeing how beautiful he is! I'm so glad you are going, I can't wait to see you together, it is worth every penny even though it hurts now...

Hey Guys,
Putting this all down into words on a page must take every emotion, bit of courage and hope! I am hoping that all of this energy will bring Dylan home to you guys...SOON! You guys are amazing...Hold each other tight, it would be so much harder to do alone.
love
debi
