We arrived in Arkansas one week ago today. In some respects the time has flown by and in others it has crawled. Getting to know Alicia and her family, witnessing Maddie's birth, bringing Maddie home--those things seem to have flown by. The paperwork on the other hand seems to be moving at a snail's pace.
We Skyped home today and I miss the girls so much! They look like they have changed so much in only a week! I'm also amazed at how much Maddie has changed in a week's time--she's more alert and for longer periods of time, she's eating better and eating more, and her little personality is starting to shine thru. She likes to have her legs rubbed, doesn't mind being burped, but doesn't like the car seat!
Tomorrow our lawyer will file the initial papers at the courthouse. Say a prayer that the paperwork is adequate and no other documents are needed. If all is in order we could be coming home in 7 days but if there are additional requirements, then it could be 2 more weeks.
More tomorrow and hopefully some pics!
