The last update we got last night said that everything is at the U.S. Embassy now, and they are already coordinating things for us to be there the beginning of June. So, with fingers crossed, we just hope that we'll be given an exact date any day now. As soon as we get our date, we can purchase our tickets and head to both Austin and Houston to authenticate a document and apply in person for our own visas to travel.
We finally got boxsprings for his bed today and set it all up for him. I can't tell you what an awkward, nervous feeling that gave us. A little deja-vu. Haven't we done this once before? Even this close, knowing we could possibly be in Colombia with him in less than two weeks, yet we still hold our breath, as if it could all slip through our fingers once again.
I'm headed to a big sale going on on Monday to grab a few clothes for him. It all makes me nervous, but we better be at least somewhat prepared for him! Thankfully he and David are so much alike and wear a lot of the same style clothes--as long as it looks and feels athletic, they're good to go.

Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing. Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.
