Possibly a Big Week

It is currently 9:22 a.m. in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The judge who went on vacation is due back at work today. At this point, he should be back in his office. Possibly, our in-country coordinator has already talked with him to determine if our cases will be heard before him this week.

Somewhere, on the other side of the world, decisions are being made that will change our lives forever. Papers will be reviewed -- all those documents we put together months ago for our dossier will be reviewed by one man who holds the power to put his signature on a document approving our adoption, or not. And my heart feels very calm this time -- reassured in some inner way that the surprises have ended and that things will move forward as slated and that in about 40 days +/- from court date I will walk out of the gates of the Tokmok orphanage with a precious little child, our blessing straight from God, and will breathe a sigh of relief that the wait is finally over, that our daughter is finally home.

This week.
