Freaking Out - Per usual

To all parties involved with our adoption: This may be surprising news to you but our child does not stop growing while you all slowly process our forms and give us what we need to travel to get him.  In the time since he's been assigned to us he's actually grown quite a bit.  He's taken his first steps and said his first words. Since September I have gone to bed at night approximately 50 times thinking about my son and wishing we could be with him to share more of his early days.  Everyday I go to work and try to concentrate, I have to say that is not going well for me.

I have been fingerprinted 4 times, taken psychological tests and filled out stacks and stacks of paperwork.  I am so  over all of this. Frankly I am surprised that people just don't kidnap children instead.  It seems like an easier path.

Right now you have the opportunity to hustle and get us to Colombia before the courts close for a month.  You have the opportunity to give us the gift of spending Christmas and New Year with our child.  You have the opportunity to prevent us from having to wait another 3 months to travel to get him.

Please I am begging you COME THROUGH FOR ME JUST THIS ONE TIME!

Sincerely, Me
