We Are Here!

And "here" would be the country that Liza lives in. We have our appointment to get her official referral on Thursday and I am really hoping we get to go to her region and meet her on Friday. This has been a long time coming and I am so ready to see her walk through those doors for the first time so I can actually lay eyes on my dream come true.

So far, things are not bad here and I think that's how they'll be. I am tired, hungry, and feeling a little lonely (cause Rick was sleeping - now getting up), but I think after I really get some good rest and some good food I will be ready to face this adventure with a big smile on my face. How can I not rejoice?! We are SO close!! Praise the Lord!

Mr Maxim is in the same region as my Liza, and as we've been in this process I have gradually fallen in love with this little boy and if we were approved to bring home 2 we would be bringing him home with Liza.

Please someone step forward for him and be the family that he absolutely deserves. Take a chance on this little boy! It will be the best bet you will ever make in your lifetime. I just know it in my bones! He will be a tremendous blessing to you and every one that his life touches. I would be your biggest cheerleader if you just step out of the boat. Please!

This is his Reece's Rainbow profile: (the link will take you to his page, he is 17 down)
"Maxim is a precious little boy who has already been sent away to the institution. He needs a family immediately!! He is 5 1/2 years old, with blonde hair and blue yes. He struggles with strabismus in both eyes and a significant tongue thrust, but surgery/glasses and OT will help with that! Please give Maxim the chance to grow up in a loving family, so he can realize his full potential!!

We have already had a family adopt from this institution, so Maxim still has an opportunity to be saved and to live the life he so richly deserves!"

A Special Date

Nope, not the kind of date where Rickydoodle and I get all dolled up and go out on the town. Is it called "dolled up" if I'm talking about Ricky? Probably not... don't tell him I said that....

Anyway! This special date is September 30th 9AM. Not 9AM our time, it will actually be 2AM our time or 11PM on the 29th if you're on the West coast. But, don't worry about all that cause what really matters is that at.........................

9AM LIZA'S TIME on the 30th we will finally be getting the official referral from her country to adopt her!!! Hallelujah!

Woo hooo!!!!! How excited am I?! I want to pack right now and buy plane tickets, go over there and just camp out outside the offices where we get this referral. I don't know how I will make it the next 3 weeks until it's really time to go. I guess I'll have to find ways to stay bus. Oh, I can NOT wait to hold her!!

Liza: "Mom? You comin' yet?"

Me: "Yes! Baby girl I am ON MY WAY!!"
