Internetz, how much do I suck? A big "thanks for nothing" to me for not updating the blog after our big meeting!
So the meeting with the kids' worker and other various workers went very well. We heard their whole story - and while there are certainly some challenges ahead (which we knew would be the case - and hey, what kid doesn't have challenges big or small at some point right?) we are totally on board.
Internetz, these are our kids.
Still early days though and we have more meetings in the coming weeks and then FINALLY we will meet the kids themselves! The waiting is torture. In the meantime, we're keeping busy trying to set up the bedrooms (we'll let them help us shop for decorating them) and create a photobook for their worker to give to them to help them familiarize with us.
I've also started quietly letting some of the "powers that be" at work know because I will be taking a minimum of the summer off of work. For the most part, everyone has been nothing but thrilled and supportive.
It's hard keeping it so quiet when you want to burst and tell the world! Heck, I'd tell the person in line with me at the supermarket if I could!
So stay with me, Internetz. I hope to update you soon with news that we are finally meeting our kids!
