I've been politely stalking the folks at CSS since our paperwork arrived last weekend via another adoptive family. I talked to C yesterday and she said she was pretty sure we wouldn't here anything about our date until after the May holidays. Then this morning I got an email with our court date!
In less than six hours we had flights confirmed, apartment rented and the visa applications sent out to the agency. Having three weeks notice for court feels so decadent. We had three DAYS notice before we had to fly out when we adopted Jack. Now THAT was stressful!
Their little clothes are all sorted out and washed, the diaper bag is packed, the room is ready. Are we? When I think about what it means to bring home two little guys, I still get a little stressed and anxious. I hope that by planning for the worst, we will find it doesn't live up to our fears.
I will post more as we go along, but for now "I gotta get outta here!" (family joke)
