Baby boy is coming home..

Oh how good it feels to post those words. Its true T is an Albright. As you all know our court date was the 31st and I never imagined how hard it would be to wait for the news. I thought I would have a day or two where I would be ok before it set in. Nope I woke up yesterday anxious...i cried alot and at everything...i hurt i just wanted to know something. Today I curled up on the couch with the stuffed moose that we have (identical to the one that we sent to ethiopia for T). Two minutes later the phone rang. I took a deep breath and picked it up. The conversation went like this..OH by the way our case manager is still in Ethiopia so our call came from Julie.
J. HI is this Renee ?
R. yes
J. Hi this is julie from AGCI I know we havent talked but i know your name and case well how are you doing?
R. Umm I"m ok (trying to breath and really nervous)
J. Well thats great because i have some good news for you
R. (bursts into tears) did we pass?
J. You sure did

ok there was some more stuff after this but basically we wait now for birth certificate and passport so they can make his embassy appointment and then we get travel dates. Most likely around the 17th. Also sometime with in the next week we will get an update on T with personality info, size, what he is eating all that good stuff. I"m not sure if we are allowed to post photos online yet so you might have to wait until he gets home but its only a few more weeks. Time to get crack a lackin on da packin.
I"m so excited that my girls, Dawny P.,Jody, Sarah, Jenn and others will be traveling with us. What an awesome time we are going to have bringing home our little ones.
Hold on baby boy momma and daddy are coming soon.
