Dossier - all finished
We notarized the last two documents that we need for the dossier. It's hard to believe that almost all the paperwork is done for now - and that we could be in Ukraine in less than 2 months adopting our beautiful twins. I've gone through several emotions, but now I am just desirious that they are here. I will go into Keith's room and almost expect to see him...what joy I will feel when he is there and when Katya is here playing in her room with Anna. I wonder if I will have what it takes to be their mother - and to be able to reach them emotionally, spiritually, physically...not to mention, mentally. And what about when they're first here and don't speak english? That will be rough. I can't wait to hear their voices - are they high or low? Do they like to play pretend? Will they be snugglebugs? (I HOPE SO) Will they enjoy the gifts and talents that I have as a person/mother? Will they enjoy baths? Will they enjoy playing with each other and with Anna? Will they love us like we love them?!? I wonder if they have an idea of what is about to happen - that their lives will never be the same again. Of course, neither will ours.
