So tired

I'm so beyond tired tonight.  But I'm up late working on paperwork.

Adoption paperwork.  Immigration forms to be exact.

Because today, out of the blue, I got a phone call from Alabama.  It seems our LOA showed up at our agency today.  I'm stunned.  And of course THRILLED too!!!  Just yesterday I shared how we were praying "that the number of days until LOA won't be much more than thirty."  Guess 30 days exactly counts!

And we got the news on my niece and nephew's one year Gotcha Day.  That's a sweet little detail that adds to the fun.

One hurdle closer to the little guy growing up so fast that he's getting married already...


Okay, so the "marriage" isn't binding in preschool at age two, but it does look like I may have another ladies' man on my hands.

More specifics about my boy soon.  For now, must. finish. forms...

So much happening is so short a time - can understand your exhaustion. But for now, what a joy that the LOA has arrived. And so soon after hearing about the LID. Won't be long before I can hug my newest grandchild. We are so blessed.
Love, Grandma M
