Here it is: the paperwork we need to bring Earth home. Between timing errors, cultural miscommunications, and weather, we hadn't been able to get it from our family on Ebeye. But now we have it! My sister Elizabeth has asked me to come for the baby on Friday so that's what we're planning on.
These past two weeks have held so many ups and downs and there are still a few hurdles that could trip us up. At this point, even with this paperwork finally in hand, it's just easier to think that something will go wrong so I'm not celebrating just yet. I will finally believe that all this will really happen when I walk out of the Dock Security Check point with my boy in my arms.
(Is it Friday yet?!)
