Fresh off the press.
Fresh of the 'espace personnelle' of the French Adoption Agency:
We are now officially in the third trimester of our eternal pregnancy! It turns out after all that we HAVE been selected from over a thousand waiting dossiers
in the 2009 commission in Mali!
We are now on a list of 125 future parents who will receive the next
125 abandoned babies that are brought by the extraordinary people who work there to one of the two orphanages in Bamako. One day in the next 3-18 months we will get a call that says our infant is waiting to be picked up and we will get on the next flight to Bamako. We will hold our child in our arms for the first time, and finally we will bring him, or her, home.
It has been a long wait. It may be a long wait still, but at least we
know now we will have our family, and meanwhile there are many silent
creative days to appreciate and projects to fulfill before our lives
change for ever!
Tonight, meanwhile, we will crack open the champagne at last! Or should it be the
Côte Rotie???? hmmm....
