THE PAPERS HAVE BEEN SIGNED.
:: deep exhale.............................. ::
This has been the longest day of my life. Honestly. She was supposed to sign around 5pm and we got the call that everything was O.K. at 10:00pm! 5 hours.... I thought I was going to lose it at 7:30pm. That was my breaking point. Panic, tears, the works. I carried my cell phone around in my hand like it was a life support apparatus and each time it would ring I would jump through my skin.
But, it went well. Here are the stats:
birth weight: 8 lb. 2 ounces
height: 21.5 inches long
hair: blonde fuzz
caseworker's remark: he is as cute as he can be.... :-)
He will be discharged tomorrow into interim care during our wait. I know it will be rough but, folks, we made it through a 3-month wait between trips to Russia with D. I'm guessing 14 days won't be quite as bad.
Check in with me after 3 days and we'll test that last statement. [grin]
