CJ's Sweet Smile

We received this sweet picture last week of our little man. I love that we get to finally see his smile. He looks so content and loved. For this I am forever grateful. I can't believe we get to be his parents. I am a lucky mama. We have not received any updates on our paperwork but we are hoping things continue to move along smoothly and that Korea starts issuing exit visas more frequently than they have been.

Rain and Legals

We got an update today. Our legals are waiting to be notarized at the consulate. I don't know how long that usually takes; however, it does mean that our paperwork is moving along. Once we get our legals we will be able to start our USCIS process. From here we just wait until the backlog of families from last year is cleared. I hope they go quickly for all of those families. Many have been waiting for over 6 months for their children's exit visas. It is time for these children to come home. CJ's time will come soon and I can not wait for that day. We have been fighting an uphill battle for so long. He is the answer to so many tearful questions and prayers. I hope I never let him forget that he is the our perfect son.

We Have A Son!!!!

The holidays have kept me from the blogesphear so this update is a little late. We received our referral on December 22nd. He is 7months old today and we can't wait to snuggle him.

Coming Up on 5 months

I think I am talking to myself but just in case someone out there is following us; I thought I would post another update.

We are quickly approaching our 5 month waiting mark. It seems we came across the perfect storm with our referral of a long waiting list and immigration issues. All in all we are expecting that our wait will continue for a few more months. We can only be getting closer. There are a lot of unknowns right now but we are still moving forward in a sitting still sort of fashion.

The wait continues

As another week fly's by I ask myself, where did we go wrong. Having spent so long trying to become a family of three has taken a toll on our hearts, our family and our friends. If I could explain the emptiness in words I would but I can't. It is like feeling perpetually misunderstood and completely numb. Sitting still is so hard to do when you feel like your alone. For now I stare at our empty nursery and hope with all the hope in my heart that our time is coming soon because I don't know how much longer my heart can take the sadness.
