The luckiest Mama

March 30, 2007 at 12:23 pm 8 comments

…happens to be me. My cup of gratitude runneth over. Court was yesterday and the judged granted our petition to become Isabel’s parents and family. I feel happy and stunned, though I don’t know why. Hearing on the phone that I am legally her mom made me want to go over there and scoop her up and do a little dance. I’ll be traveling mid-May. I can’t wait to bring her home. I would write more, but my brain isn’t working right now.

    Congratulations! I am so glad she’s finally yours. I wish Kyrgyzstan would drop the waiting period, especially for parents like you who travelled to meet the children before court. Good luck!

    Congrats on the court date! I was sitting in the middle of a Starbucks in G’ville when I got the call that court had come and gone and all was well! It was sort of emotional… Sophie and I were cheering and cutting up and Jim met us just a few minutes later… so the whole place thought we were loopy!
    It won’t be long and she’ll be home and getting so big and strong!

    Congrats on the court date! I felt like everything was more real after that and I had a right to shop, shop, shop. Have fun. I’m with you on the cute baby shoes. She will be with you before you know it. I think she looks a lot like our girl…beautiful 🙂
