It's finally here!

fingerprint That's right, folks, I'm getting fingerprinted!  And I am ready.  I have been drinking lots of water, I have skipped doing dishes so I won't look so pruney (ok, I skip doing dishes a lot), I'm trying to keep my hands warm and hydrated, and I ate left overs so that I won't risk cutting myself.  I will have no fingerprint disasters tomorrow! 

I have to admit, I'm finally getting excited again.  I feel like I have had to protect my heart from getting hurt again so I have been approaching the whole process with a lot more trepidation.  No matter what, I am in for the long haul.  If I am going to wait 3-4 years for my daughter to come home, I will certainly wait however long it takes to have the MOU re-signed. 

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year and Tet.  Every year for the past couple ofTet

of years, I have dressed up for CNY.  Please forgive my ignorance of Tet traditions for the time being, I'm still learning.  I have had the upper hand on Chinese culture due to some extended family that lives in Hong Kong and a number of Chinese friends here.  Dressing up is just a way of remembering my connections and celebrating with friends and family. 

Happy Year of the Rat Everybody!  May this year bring many blessings and draw families close!

This started as my story, but has evolved to OUR story. This is the story of life as a single parent to a wonderful little boy while we wait for baby sister. China LID 2.12.07.


But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day.
