A Light Peeks Through

Finally, a pinprick of light at the end of the adoption tunnel. Yesterday, we got the call about the next step in our adoption of Prince Caspian. They have scheduled our meeting for today at 3:00 p.m. They FORGOT to let us or Covenant Kids know until yesterday! Isn't that humorous? We are the soon-to-be parents!

Last night, we were sufficiently overwhelmed. With the time that drags between the CPS 'steps,' we get back into our normal lives and make no permanent decisions about highchairs, changing tables, cribs, etc. We almost forget that we were 'chosen.' I think this must be a coping mechanism for us... if we spent all of our time planning for tomorrow, we would miss out on today.

But tomorrow is here! The plan for his transition will be put in place... and the race begins. I want to get his family book made (on my bum computer that takes me 5 times as long as it should to accomplish a task!), I want to make a DVD of our family for his foster Mom to show him, and that doesn't even begin on the very practical matters of food, toys, clothing, etc.

The tunnel is still pretty dark and it will be 6-7 months before the adoption is finalized... but, the light exists nonetheless. And it is beautiful!
