Turning Blue

It is hard holding your breath for 3-plus months. But that is what I feel like I've been doing. Ever since I got to hold her sweetness and hear her laugh and snuggle up with her in October, I've been holding my breath, waiting to bring her home.

Of course, I do get the requisite breaths needed to sustain life, but honestly, I'm not really breathing...

So I'm tossing up a prayer that we'll soon get Izzie home. I want to hear that we've gotten PGN approval. Then I want to hear that the final decree has been issued, and that the birth certificate and new passport have been completed. Then, that the DNA test has been conducted and processed and then that the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala has received the results and given us a Visa appointment date. I would like that date to be in March, or sooner!!

I would like all this so I can breathe. And so that I can hold her sweetness again and forever.

March would be a great month to bring your baby home! You are working with a wonderful agency and I have faith that you will soon be with Izzie.

All I can say is "ditto" to every word you wrote.
I feel exactly the same way. This is so hard, isn't it?

When, I like the sound of that, when our dtr gets comes, she will be sharing a room with her older brother who is 14 months older and also from Guat. I am still thinking how to do their room and how it will all work out. Good luck to you.
