Today, April 8th
It has been a busy week....Jack has recovered very well from his ear tube surgery and is like a new kid! He is so cheerful again and is sleeping great! YEH!!! Now we really realize how fussy he was and uncomfortable for so long. Jack loved playing outside in the gorgeous weather this weekend. These photos show him getting into the play-area and yard clean-up, which was a family affair!
This week has also been very full for me with pulling our adoption dossier together. Lots of document to be notarized, certified by the state, passport photos taken for the dossier (not for our passport), medicals completed...the list goes on. I have one more document to recieve from the state and then the dossier will go to the adoption agency, CHSFS! Then the dossier is completed with their paperwork process and then goes to Ethiopia! It is quite a process that takes a lot of determination! Juddy has been asking alot of questions lately about our baby girl, like "Where will she sleep?", "Where will she sit in the car?". I think he is starting to imagine her being apart of our family more and more. Drew is interested in where she is coming from and likes to look at the map. Of course, Baby Jack is clueless and has no idea how this little girl is going to rock his world! It will feel so real once we can show all of the boys a picture of their sister...then their heads will wrap around the concept even more!
I am working hard on the fundraising event for AIDS Walk Africa and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. I am checking into permits, port-a-pottys, food, painting signs and gathering items for the silent auction. Lots and lots to do!! I hope people come, have fun and that we raise $$$ for the children!
