I hesitate to say it out loud, but we're just 5 tiny days away from forever.
It doesn't seem real at all.
I'm pretty sure that I won't be coherent until I see and hear the judge say it's over. When I sign papers and begin to changes names in places like our doctor office.
I'm doing a little count down just to try to make it seem more real.
Basically the only real part of it right now for me is the practical. Get cakes. Get balloons. Send out one more invite. Clean the floor again.
On the edges though are the little things.
In 6 days, I'll be able to put up her picture any where on the planet that I want. Get ready for the blog overload of my Little Miss. I already have picked out in my heart the photographer who will make my little forever family of 3 look amazing. You can check her out over here and get a little teary over her photos like I always do.
In 6 days I can say yes when she begs for ear pretties, read pierce my ears mama.
In 6 days I can get her hair done anyway I like, even get it cut. Um, no. Not going to do that, I've finally just learned how to braid those beads on the ends, so it will stay long for now.
In 6 days the visits end. No more case workers or state workers or adoption staff or GAL people or....well, at least it will be cut in half. Little One still has his share of people.
In 6 days forever begins.
