A Quick Jump Across the USA
This last weekend Baby MPB took his first airplane ride. The flight went well, in fact, he slept through the entire thing in a carrier on my chest. (Thank you to whomever told me a baby carrier is a basic necessity for flying with an infant).
On the one hand, this is very exciting as we are one step closer to going home!!
On the other hand, we have now said our in-person goodbyes to our birth mom. We have promised a visit at some point, but we have not set a date and we all know it will be a while before we see each other again in person. Leaving her was incredibly bitter sweet because we know that it means we are closer to getting home and. But, we also know the magnitude of what she is saying goodbye to.
It was hard for me to say goodbye to her, I cannot even begin to imagine how incredibly hard this is on her.
We flew a few days ago. We were told we could be going home in as little as 2-3 days. Well, no surprise, that didn’t happen. We are still waiting on the USA judge to sign the adoption paperwork so that Canada can then sign their documents. Once all that happens we get the official documents from our agency. And then we can get a rush order passport and fly home. It’s been an insanely stressful week, possibly one of the hardest of my entire life.
As of now, I’m trying to let go of the schedule because it’s killing me every single time they miss an estimated timeline. So, right now, I’m just hoping that things fall into place this week so we don’t have to wait through another weekend. I miss the modern comforts of my own home and my personal freedom. Mostly, right now I miss my kitchen and my washer and dryer.
