18 days

18 days but whose counting?  Well we are!!  That’s all we have left until our plane leaves Nashville and we begin a journey that will bring us into the next chapter of our lives.

Lucky for us Latvia allows the children to return home with us on a student visa while we finish up the rest of the adoption so we are are able to spend that time bonding with our children.   We will still have two more trips to make there that will happen sometime later this year but none the less we will be finalized sometime in 2012.

I am looking forward to being done with the paperwork and the fundraising.  It’s been a lot of extra work to fit in with working full time and running our own businesses.  I know having Dajana and Adelina here will make it all worth it though.

I’m also excited because as this chapter of our journey is coming to a close I am seeing opportunities to fill my need to advocate for orphans coming about.   Yes we are adopting and giving two children a home but our work is not finished there.  Until there are no more children in orphanages and foster families we will continue to share and advocate for them.  But I’ll save all of that for another post Smile

Right now we have 18 days to get together tax returns, copies of our copy of our dossier made,  government forms completed and notarized, and to plan how to pack 4 people into 3 suitcase for 11 days.

We we come Latvia!!
