I See The Light...!

We made it through the Packer game last night!  Well...actually, Jake made it through the Packer game - Rachel and I went to bed at halftime :)  I must have been really tired - because when he came to bed, I apparently said something like 'hi baggy man'.  When he asked what I was talking about, he said I got super irritated and said 'ugh!  you know...baggy man...?!  the metro...? ugh....'.  I believe every word...that is exactly what I do.  Oh Lord :)

This morning we planned on sleeping in...late.  Well - the phone rang at 9:00a - but it was a very good phone call!  It was Luda!  She was calling to tell us that Niko was picking up our court decree TODAY!  She told us to stay near the apartment until we hear from Niko, because he's going to take us to get the court decree notarized.  Luda explained the rest of the process to Jake...and it sounds like it's very, very possible that we'll have Carter's passport by Thursday night - which means we can come home on Saturday!  If we don't get the passport by Thursday night, then we'll be here until Monday or Tuesday.  Really - it's only a few days difference, and not huge deal - but of course the sooner we can get home, the better!

We're hoping that we can still go to our visit this afternoon, because tomorrow is going to be one crazy day.  Tons of paper chasing - tons of crossing stuff of lists - really, it will be craziness.  But good craziness - because it brings us that much closer to bringing our boy home!

Gotcha day?  Well....we don't know exactly.  If we get the passport on Thursday night, which is when Luda thinks we'll get it - then Gotcha day will likely be Friday.  It could be Thursday night - but it would be late, so I'm thinking that's doubtful.

Ready?!  Hang on tight...because here we go!

One Thing I Know For Sure: Do you see it?  The light at the end of the tunnel?!  We do!  It's so, so close!
