To our utter amazement and delight, it appears that we may be headed to court on Christmas morning!!! I can't think of a more beautiful day nor a better fitting one to begin our new family life. My mom has been praying for a Christmas miracle...It certainly feels like one!
We have been running around the city today, getting ourselves ready, printing off pictures, last minute Christmas items and gifts. We noticed quite a bit more people out shopping today. They will be exchanging gifts on Dec. 31rst...so they are really beginning to get in the holiday spirit. We certainly are!! The countdown to Christmas has taken on a new turn...now Sven and I are counting down the hours as well as Yannik! I told him that this year, his sister would be quite the gift to us all. He asked whether we could wrap her and put a bow on her head...hmm..knowing our little gal's personality, I'm not sure she would put up with that ;0)))
We visit her again tomorrow...I wonder if she will feel our excitement! We had supper with the Lajoys tonight and I confided that I was feeling a bit nervous...not only for court (ha ha... yes, a rather nervous lawyer!) but also at beginning this new chapter of our lives. I plan on telling Mlle O. tomorrow that if the judge says yes, I promise to be the best mom that I can be...even though neither one can understand each other's language at the moment. Who needs words when you have love, right?
