Still Waiting….

Who said that quote about “patience being a virtue”… blah blah blah? I despise that individual right now ūüôā ¬†Nevertheless, we have spent some quality time with the birth parents, as well as met the birth father’s family, and we are quite glad that we had the opportunity to do that. ¬†However, now that we covered all our bases here in the land that 1945 has remained, we are ready now…she has our permission for her water to break…please…now….
