Well, almost...in about 17.5 hours, that is!!!!
Our bags are (almsot) packed and everything is (almost) in order. Okay, there's still a lot to do, but that's why everyone has been assigned jobs to complete before tomorrow. I single-handedly cleaned ALL of the old toys with baby wipes and set up a little playroom in the room off of my parents' bedroom, and got her own room in order (I'm kind of proud of myself!) I now have a few odds and ends here and there to do, and once my brothers come back from the neighbors' house, I'll start videotaping the home portion of our adoption adventure- I'll interview the boys on what they think of our trip/the adoption, and include shots of her nursery and playroom. As long as everything goes smoothly and I figure out how to do it, I'll try to post it, or at least parts of it, here when we get back. I also hope to set up a picture montage and recount exactly how the trip was day by day!
I hope that I can post from ET and Dubai, but I'm not making any promises since I don't know if I'll have the time or resources. I definetely won't be able to post pictures, but maybe I can post a few brief updates on how everything is going.
The day I've been waiting for for two years is finally right around the corner- it seemed like it would never happen!! It's amazing to think about how my dreams are about to come true- I've wanted a sister ever since Kristian was born (believe it or not, I actually did want him to be a boy!) Thank you so much for letting me share my emotions and experiences so far on this journey...I can't WAIT to share the rest of it!
