I promised a post YESTERDAY, but with a newborn we've been pretty busy. But the biggest news and reason I haven't had time to post is... we're HOME!! How awesome is that?
Kevin and I had been talking about how we'd been praying that we could come home this week, but decided that we needed to pray specifically. We were praying that God would work a miracle and that the ICPC paperwork would go through smoothly so that we'd be able to come home on Wednesday. Well, Wednesday we had a pediatrician appointment in Cary, NC at 11:00. So, we set our clocks for 9, which gave us plenty of time to shower, feed/change Kate, and get ready to head out the door. Of course when the alarm clock went off we hit snooze a few times. :) Well, before the alarm went off again my phone was ringing. I answered and it was our adoption worker Erica* telling us that we'd been approved to go home! YES! We are so thankful that this is one prayer that God answered YES to! He is soooo good!
We jumped up, showered and packed our car faster than we'd ever had before. And, we had a TON of stuff to pack. Newborns really don't travel lightly. We needed to check out before our Dr appointment because the Dr's office was on our way home. It would save us basically an hour and a half to check out and then go to the appointment instead of going to the appointment and then coming back to our hotel to pack and check out. We barely made it! Got to the Dr's office at 11:15 for our 11:20 appointment and we didn't waste any time!
We made it home in about 5 hours and pulled in our driveway about 5:30. Never been so happy to be home!
PS- Kate had a great appointment. She is now 9 lbs 1/2 oz and 21 inches long. She gained 13 oz in just 9 days... she loves to eat! :) She's in the 75th percentile for height and weight. She's doing so good!
