Jack Cruz Update

Well... actually not too much to update on little bit himself, as we haven't gotten a pic or well baby checkup for quite some time.  We were told that the "older than 12 months kids" would start going every other month since there are so many babies in rotation right now.  This momma heart thinks that new routine stinks.  It is no fun to go a couple of months without any info on your baby all the way around the globe.  The only thing we've heard recently is that he went in for yet another procedure last month, though we don't really have any results or pertinent information on it.  He goes almost every month for this same type procedure, and truthfully, I know that he is receiving amazing care, but I really wish he could just hold off on any more poking and prodding until he is snuggled in my arms and I can be the one to take him.  I know he's in amazing care, but still... he's my little baby and its hard not to be able to mother him right now...

Onto our process:

We are patiently {truthfully- so far we are doing ok with this particular part of the wait, though of course with adoption, soon is never soon enough} waiting for our court*date.  We were told yesterday that there is a little snag with our paperwork and our agency is trying to work through that and really there's nothing Justin and I can do about it, other than wait and hope its all ironed out lickity split.  We are praying its really nothing and will continue to be processed quickly.

**UPDATED:  Unfortunately, the snag is a little more concerning than we originally thought.  We humbly covet your prayers that all paperwork issues can be aligned into place and that we will be well on our way to our little boy.**

Even though we have been assigned to a judge who has in the past been a bit behind the others, we have a peace about it.  And for that matter, for whatever reason, I just felt very certain he was our judge anyway, so I wasn't the least bit surprised by this news.  I also feel like I need to knock on some wood just in case, but I realllly do think we will travel for C sooner rather than later.  I sure do HOPE so, at least.  And we've also been told that the families who have appeared in front of him have been very pleased with him and that his demeanor is very polite and encouraging.  That's certainly great news!

Our fingerprints expire again August 17th and his birthday is September 3rd.  I would LOVE to have him home by Aug 17 so Justin doesn't have to take off work and us pay again for reprints (if you're keeping count this will be the fifth re-fingerprinting....but I'd REALLLLLY LOVE to have him home by his birthday.

Alrighty.  Keep praying sweet friends!  We are getting sooooo close to our little one!
