The time is almost here. This is my last weekend at home before I head back to Moscow next weekend to meet a beautiful little girl. My flights are booked. I leave on Saturday the 24th and return home on Saturday, Oct 1. I decided to go Singapore Air from Houston this time. Only $730 RT to DME and then I booked a 2nd RT to get me to Houston but all in it was less than $1000 which is MUCH cheaper than United or Delta. So excited. The Marriott Courtyard didn't have the adoption rate available so I am at the Marriott Grand this time around which I hear is just as nice too. The nursery has been changed from a boy's monkey jungle theme to a beautiful girly owl theme. As I have said in other posts, the nursery is an emotional hurdle for me and helps me believe it is all real. When I changed it from a girl's room to a boy's room with my last referral, it really helped. So while it is not necessarily cost effective to keep switching it with each referral, each time I need to remain hopeful that this is the one! So - 4th time is a charm right?
This last week will be painful to keep waiting but I have my referral picture on my computer and stare at her sweet little face only about a million times each day. Looking forward to meeting her soon and holding her in my arms. Praying she is my daughter and Clare's baby sister!
More to come!
