Labors of Love

I was thinking earlier today that if the adoption experience was equal to the birthing experience, I’d have delivered four or five babies by the time this is all over. I don’t mean months-wise (although…9 x 4 = 36 and we ARE into our third year of the process) but I mean in regard to… Continue reading Labors of Love

Passport Party

Oh yeah, we’re rocking a Passport Party over here today! I think this might just be the first thing throughout this adoption process that’s happened at the time it was promised, but our Ugandan Pearl has a passport!!! Honestly, I don’t know how to act.

Back in Uganda

All that coupled with adjusting back to life here has kept me busy. AND, there hasn’t really been anything… Continue reading New News

Love that Endures

Our girl needs to come home. I’ve really, really had enough of the waiting. Honestly, I’d had enough of the waiting this time last year. I was fed up in January after court, when it took five weeks to get the ruling that was promised in one. It was heartbreaking to go home in April… Continue reading Love that Endures

Last Day in Uganda

With much joy, relief and gratitude I announce that our daughter received her visa yesterday. She and my husband will begin their long journey home tonight. It feels crazy that we’ve finally reached this point. It’s been three years since we first found out about her; two and a half years since we decided to… Continue reading Last Day in Uganda
