Leala here: Tim called me at some early hour in the middle of the night to let me know, he has the visas!!!!! He now has everything he needs to board the plane Monday morning and bring the kids home! We officially began the process to adopt in April 2 years ago. In many ways it has felt like a long 2 years and some points went by sooooo slowly but in the grand scheme of things it wasn't that long at all! Two years and all of the hassle to get through the legal requirements and red tape is definitely not too long when I think about the fact that it means two little ones will now have a family and our family will forever be changed! When I think about what this opportunity to adopt has meant to me, I am flooded with thoughts! Although we may go through weeks, months or even years of acclimating to the sudden change in our family, I am certain that what the change it will bring in our family is invaluable! As I look at Kaden and Piper and contemplate how much I love them...I cannot wait to begin getting to know Mia and Joey.......just as I do with Kaden and Piper, I can't wait to learn their laughs, cry's, what makes them giggle, what makes them sad, what they think is funny, what quirks they and all the other little things that make them into to unique kids that they! Tuesday can't come soon enough.......even though the kids don't really know me yet and will probably be shy and eneasy, I can't wait to give them a hug, tell them I love them and just see their little faces!
