Final Approval {Friday}

We woke up bright and early to get ready for our court appointment.  After getting all gussied up, we were off to impress the judge!!

Going in the court room was very emotional and overwhelming but once we sat down, most of the nerves backed off a bit.  He mostly addressed questions to me, which was perfect for Justin's shyer personality.  The judge was incredibly kind, complimented me on my Korean!!, got choked up a bit when we answered our motivations to adopt and shared about our Christian faith (which is normally discouraged to do, but he point blank asked us to share, which I was extremely happy to do!), and told me that he thought I would make a wonderful teacher and Mommy.  So sweet.  Justin made him laugh a few times too, so we deemed the appointment a smashing success!

After court, we headed to a local BBQ joint where we debriefed a bit. 

And then we headed to our apartment to change into comfy clothes and to rest for a bit.

After a while, we headed back out to grab a little snack and then head to the Seoul tower.  

Y'all.  Let's take a second to discuss mine and Justin's navigational capabilities...


Ok.  Done.  

We can do the underground subway all day long.  Put us on top of ground and in ten feet we are L-O-S-T.

What should have taken maybe thirty minutes to get to took us not one, not two, but THREE hours to get to!!! ARG.  Thankfully, for the most part, when J and I start getting super frustrated we also start getting super silly and since we were both totally failing miserably at the direction aspect of the problem, neither could blame the other so it turned into a challenge in our eyes. 


And we did.  And two seconds later the thunder storm that had been threatening this whole time's bottom dropped.  

And where was our umbrella you ask?  

The apartment.  

So we bought a new one and continued the Seoul Tower Saga. 

SO glad we can choose mercy and laugh about these things.

Never a doubt in my mind that you wouldn't ace court! I know what a relief it is to have that in the past. Enjoy the rest of your time there. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’–
