And the day has finally come!!!!!!


We got an email late late last night with the wonderful news, our Final Ruling has been filed!!!!

Wow, I am still trying to wrap my head around this! We are just so thrilled and excited and relieved that I just don't even know where to start or what to do next!

We are waiting for our AIT appointment to be set, and then we can book flights and hotel. We are really hoping to travel early next week, say Tuesday or Wednesday, but should know more details later.

Thank you all for sticking by us through this, I know I've been a bit gloomy and sad...this really has been extremely difficult and very trying emotionally. But the end is oh so very near!!

Soon I'll be holding my sweet baby boy!

Oh, I am just overjoyed with this news :) and I'm not gonna get tired of saying (or rather) typing it any time soon!!

You so deserve this bliss and this magic time of planning for this journey!!

You already KNOW I'm doing my happy dance and my "its about time" hollering sent our poor furry girl scrambling. LOL ;)

Smiling big in your honor today....its finally your turn and I can't imagine a more deserving Mama ~ I think you have handled this extremely difficult time with such grace and strength!!

Enjoy your time on cloud nine this weekend and don't hesitate to dash me a note if a question arises...would love to help if I can!!

Something told me to check your blog today. And boy am I glad I did! How EXCITING!!!

You must be on cloud 9! I'm just thrilled for all of you. Little boys are a lot of fun and they love their mamas!

Laura said...

Congrats! So happy the day has come. Can't wait to hear updates. How does Simone feel about all of it? What a happy happy day.

Terry said...

YOO WOOOO!! I am soooo happy for you! I don't think there are enough adjectives to cover all the happiness coming your way! I bet the monitor hugging helped too! :-)

Now when your heart starts to come back to a normal rate, it's time to remember to least the toothpaste, copy all your docs, and meet Simone and Adam at the door.

It was been a loooong wait and in just a few more days, just a few MORE days, you WILL be kissing and hugging that handsome face!! Oh, I can't wait to see you holding him, Simone playing with him, and Adam being the proud Dad. It's really happening - You ARE going to pick him up!!!

More Happy dancing!! :-)
