In 48 hours, I am headed across the ocean to court! I know court usually breeds fear in most minds, but this is adoption court! I'm going to bring my newest little sweetheart home!
I will try my best to post about the experience while I'm there, though the posts will be fairly censored since I can't post anything specific about my girl. But I"ll try to at least include details about my personal journey, and about the beautiful country I'll be living in for a month!
I had all but given up hope of getting my court dates in 2013, when my agency contacted me yesterday. I was asked if I could get to Latvia by Monday.
I took a census of people I trusted and the resounding answer was...find a way to make it happen! So, with a million prayers packed under my heart, I started looking for last minute tickets and hotels.
I enlisted the help of an army of adoption friends online, and by 10am this morning, I had tickets, hotel, and a half-packed suitcase.
I probably won't get to write again until Monday, so see you then! I'll leave you with a photo of the square near the apartment I'll be staying in. So excited!
Thank you, God, for bringing M and me together as mother and daughter. I am grateful beyond your wildest imaginings!!!!
