Hey people, we got news. We found out today that our bonding period actually started the first day we saw Sam, so that means that our last day is today. That’s a cool thing. It really went fast. So now we have an interview at the department of education here in the city. They will ask us some questions, and once we get their approval, Lord willing, they will schedule a court date. They say we could get into the department of education as early as Thursday or Friday, so we are hoping for soon.
Once we are done there we will have a court date schedules. We are also praying that our court date will be soon. Court is the biggest thing that affects how everything goes from here forward. When our court date is determines a lot of how long we will be here, and what the court’s decision is obviously weighs a lot.
We had a good visit with Sam’s doctor this morning about his medical history, how she thinks he is progressing since we got here, and what to expect in court. She is a really sweet lady who is always smiling, and she will be in court with us. That is something we are glad for. She says that Sam is really progressing a lot since we arrived. One thing that stood out to me was that she said most kids are looking around as people come in and out for someone to be their parents (even if they don’t exactly understand parents yet, they are at least looking for “their people”). But since we arrived she said Sam doesn’t do that anymore. He knows we are his people.
Yesterday when we arrived in the morning we got their after the other family who has a child in Sam’s class. So they had already picked up their little boy, and Sam was left behind. So when we got there he was crying and having to be held, probabyl because he wondered where we were, and when he saw us he immediately stopped crying. So cool. Is it ok to say that we were glad to see our kid cry?
Sam is doing so much better at walking, too. It’s crazy that he is progressing so fast in only two weeks, but yesterday he tool probably 15 steps on his own. He usualy takes a few and then falls into our arms, but yesterday he just kept on going. It’s a cool thing. I plan to have him running and working on his crossover by the time we leave here.
We have uploaded a few videos on our youtube page that may give you some insight into our lives here so far. They are sort of old, and we are catching up. They are midly humorous, I guess, and we hope you enjoy them and feel part of us by watching them. We love and do read every single comment, even if we don’t reply, so keep those coming when you have those thoughts. If oyu have an idea for something you would like to see or know let us know and we will see what we can do.

Thank you for continuing to walk with us.
