This says it all!!!!

We got it! We got Bright's passport!!!! It was a long shot because they usually don't let anybody in on Monday's but Paul's friend got us in. I waited in the car while they went in. I was bummed about not going in but I thought, "You know what God? You don't need me in order to make this happen." And as it turned out the director signed it on Saturday and it was there waiting when Edward went in! Yahoozee!!!
Also had a successful trip to the embassy today. Got Part I of the visa packet. Not sure why they make you split it into two seperate trips here, but whatever. Go to turn in Part I on Wednesday and then they will give me Part II. Part II contains the Visa Medical so we'll do that on Wednesday and then turn in everything on Thursday. Then we wait for a final visa interview.
Guess that's about it. Feeling better--"just" like a cold today rather than something else. Bright had a major blow out diarrhea on us last night in the hotel lobby and then again in the hotel room. All while I only had 2 diapers left! But he's doing fine today.
Adjustment is going great. I don't think he thinks I am THE Mommy, but he is totally accepting me as A mommy. No tears whatsoever. No fear. Nothing. Just me and a happy baby! Yes, I am blessed. =-)

Well, I better go. This is my first time at the internet with Bright (only acceptable since this is the hotel business center and not a public cafe). Let's just say he's a bit restless and I don't care to tell you how many time I had to turn off CAPS LOCK while I was typing this message! LOL!
P.S. Sent more pics to the family last night. Sister Nichole should be loading some of them on the blog soon.
