-Sunday, my sweet friend Robin offered to watch Jax, so that I could focus on our dossier on Monday. Yay for friends!
-Another friend of ours notarized some of our paper work on Sunday evening after church, so we could get some documents in the mail Monday morning. Double yay for friends!
-Called the Secretary of States office first thing on Monday morning.
-Found out that two of the local Christian radio stations want Justin and I to come on and speak about our adoption and benefit our friends are hosting for us. This makes me a little nervous, but I think it is a great opportunity.
-Checked my e-mail and found out that our adoption education coordinator didn't think she had our Eyes Wide Open workbook. I started to worry a little, because we mailed it off last Tuesday.
- Broke out into tears in the FedEx Store!!! Maybe I should elaborate a bit. I went to FedEx to mail a couple of documents to two different places. While I was there I asked them to track our package (the workbook that I had worked on for 3 months). I was told that the package arrived last Friday at 11:27am. The note said noone was there, so they left it on the porch. I have to say this upset me greatly. I just couldn't imagine what had gone wrong, but knew I Did Not want to have to redo all that work. I tried to hold it together, but the tears just started falling. My new friend Chris from FedEx was very sympathetic and did his best to help me.
-Rejoiced when I found out my workbook had not only made it to AGCI, but was approved. Oh, I can't tell you how relieved I was! We are completely finished with all of our adoption education. WooHoo!
-Justin and I went to the police station to get a letter stating that we do not have a criminal background check. I won't even get into this, but it wasn't easy. I am praying we got what we needed, but not really sure if we did.
-Oh, and in the midst of all of this I got a call that Sawyer had an accident at school and needed a change of clothes. Great! Justin was the hero in the situation!
So, that was just a little glimpse of my Monday.
-Today the boys had their physicals for our home study. No big deal, right? Until, the doctor tells me Sawyer has a heart murmur that needs to be checked out. He said it should be fine, just wanted to check it out.
-Next, he checks Jax and says he has the same heart murmur. Seriously??
-Took both boys down the hall to have chest x-rays and EKGs. If I had any idea this was going to happen I would not have gone alone and I would have stocked a bag with toys and books. The boys did so great, though. They made me proud, except for in the waiting room, but that's another story. We were there for 3 hours.
-We don't have results yet, but I think everything is fine. We will find out for sure tomorrow.
Tomorrow Justin and I have our physicals and I am praying everything goes well. No surprises!
This adoption journey has not been easy, but I keep reminding myself that when we hold our Mia Grace in our arms it will all be worth it.
