We are finally new MEXICANS! Awesome huh? I never thought in a million years that I would say that and LOVE it! The last few days, even with all the stress, I have discovered a center of calmness within myself that I have not felt in awhile. I feel very comfortable in my new environment. I don’t know how Doug feels, he hasn’t really had time to stop and relax since we have arrived. Studying and finally taking the bar today and tomorrow. Thursday is going to be the best day of our lives without it hanging over our heads anymore. I am really looking forward to getting a relaxed and stress-free husband for the few days between taking the bar and him starting his new job.
I just want everyone to know that we are here and safe and look forward to the many plans our friends and family are making to come and see us. The first we will see will be Scott & Whit as they make their way to Austin and pit stop in ABQ. We have also heard talk from Briana & Alex, as well as my cousin Denique talk about coming out to see us and hang out during the hot air balloon festival, aka Balloon Fiesta. That will be beginning of October (6th – 14th). I am thankful that we were about to move away but still be close enough to have frequent visits.
Here are some pictures from the farewell we had before we left. Pictures of our new place will come soon.
p.s. Since this is a blog about adoption I should add an update about ouradoption. I am going to call our caseworker this week to see what New Mexico requires of us to proceed with adoption approval.
