According to Andy, my glass is half-full utopia I live in is not all that realistic sometimes!! Hence the reason he's not all that surprised with the extended delay of court. And since I pack how I feel at the moment(cold in Ohio), I neglected to pack for warmer weather. Seriously, how do you pack for 5-6 weeks? The City By The Sea is pushing 70 this week, so he took me shopping this afternoon to buy some clothes. Three hours later, plenty of bags and some NEW SHOES, and the sun is shining brightly!

The caretakers are so kind to us(even the one who intimidated us at first) that when we walk in they smile, say hello, and motion where she is. Even the other kids yell for her once they see us, grab her hand, and bring her to us.
Once court takes place, I'll be able to share our plans for home. They given us some scenarios, but nothing is for sure. Once the court decree takes effect, her birth certificate and passport paperwork needs to begin. And once again, it begins here, travels to the capital, processed, and sent back here before we can leave the City by the Sea with her. And since there is no Fed Ex, the paperwork is transported by train(10 hours each way).
So we wait
