On January 30th, we saw the face of our daughter for the first time.
On February 2nd, we sent off our LOI.
And we’ve been waiting ever since.
While we’ve been not-so-patiently waiting, our Vivi has grown. She’s gone from a baby to a toddler, from one set of pictures to the next.
She turned 2 on November 1st. We celebrated her. And missed her.
As the days go by, I find myself missing her more and more.
Her absence is almost palpable. Last night I commented at the dinner table that our family seems so “small” lately. While Chris almost coughed up his left lung, the kids all agreed adamantly. Someone is most definitely missing.
We’re hoping and praying that sometime in January, our family will be just right. Vivienne will be home.
Right now we are waiting for news on our Article 5 (please pray for us!) Once that has been signed by the Consulate, the CCAA should issue Travel Approval in 2-3 weeks.
Then we get on a plane to bring our girl home.
And our family will be just right.
