It's in the Mail... FINALLY

The application is in the mail. FINALLY. Hopefully next week I can start working on my dossier and have it done in a week and a half. I hope this goes alot quicker. We need to get into the courts already.

Yet Another Picture

I love seeing this face. He is such a doll. Can't wait to hold him again. Please stay tuned. I have to run to the post office.

Trying to have a Merry Christmas

Today hasn't been great. I woke up at 3am and prayed that God would help me get our application together to mail today. I put the turkey in the oven at 5. Got up later because I knew I had to work tonight. Got to the Christmas party at Patrick's work and realized I forgot to wrap 2 of the gifts for the kids. Just wasn't feeling the spirit. Got home and got the application together FINALLY. Went to the post office. CLOSED. They closed at noon today. The UPS office wasn't open either. So I didn't get what I really wanted for Christmas. Then I remember, last year all I wanted was Ananya. She's here now. Prasun is smiling and looks very happy. All 3 of my children are healthy. We have lots of presents under the tree. It will be ok. Next year Prasun should be here. I'll forget all the hurt I feel today. He'll be happy and we'll all be a family.
I had to stop and count my blessings. There were plenty to count. First thing Wednesday I'll be at the post office to send the application off. I'll work like crazy to get the dossier done ASAP.
Have a Merry Christmas!

He's up to it Again!

Another family has traveled to India to pick up their baby. I love family reunions. Well this family saw Prasun. They said "We also saw Prasun, who had a completely endearing (and quick) smile. He is a charming little man!" I love to hear those words. Only 1 couple saw Ananya while we were waiting and that was only a month before we left.
Keep up the good spirits baby boy. We love you.

One More Step!

We have completed one more step in this process and only have a million to go yet. We had our homestudy visit yesterday. We are only doing one because it has only been 3 months since our last postplacement visit. I'm happy to have it done and am praying the paperwork will come together without too much difficulty. I want my little boy. Today is really the first day I've had that feeling. The one where part of me is across the world and I just yearn to hold him. IN GODS TIME. In the meantime, I'll work with Ananya and teach Anthony and pray. I will find strength that GOD will lead us through this journey once again. I can't remember the pain from our first adoption. Ananya's smile erases those memories.
Onto other big news. Guess what?
Prasun was standing in his crib in the new pictures. I would never have thought. That is pure and simply GOD taking care of my baby boy.
I'm having a great week. I hope all of you are as well.
Joy, I'm praying for travel soon.
Prasun, I'm coming baby. God will hold your hand until then. I love you sweetie.
