More waiting....

We "should" have a date this week for a meeting to be scheduled to meet Andre's team and start planning a transition. I am really hoping it will take significantly less time than it took to get the match meeting scheduled. I know transition is going to be difficult, expecially since Andre can not communicate easily, but I don't think delaying longer and longer will make it any easier, not for any of us. We are all very excited to meet him. Ethan wrote him a very sweet letter in school last week and has even learned to say his name and asks about him all the time. He is even more excited about this than he was about his wish trip. I am hoping that there is a possibility of having him come to the Mother's Day Pow Wow so he can meet some of our out of state family....not sure if that is too much to hope for, but I think it would be awesome for us to all be together as a family by then....it is a little over 9 weeks away. Hopefully soon we will have more news to share.
