We passed court yesterday March 25, 2010. This means Cyprien Mugisha is officially a part of our family. That also means I can post pictures!
Here is a recap of the last couple days:
Thursady was a wild and crazy day. In the effort to increase our efficiency, we ditched the driver and I resorted to motorcycle taxis. It was actually really fun (except for the 2nd degree burn on my leg, watchh out for those tail pipes!). We passed court and got the official court documents the same day which is a miracle. For those of you in this process, I plan to write more detail when time allows, but for now suffice it to say that your POA has to do a full day or two work on each step of the process and each of those steps usually involves several smaller steps. It is hard, hard work. I was exhausted, sore, and very very dirty when I got home. God knew how much I needed the shower because I actually had warm water!
Today, I was able to help with some items for our friends' adoption. I was unable to see Spree because things just take longer than usual here. I didn't receive the document to let me keep him full time, but I will pick him up for the day on Saturday and Sunday. We have a CRAZY list of things to accomplish Monday morning in order to submit the passport paperwork and embassy documents. And, I will hopefully receive the travel document as well and keep Spree full-time.
I am off to try to find some pizza now--weird cravings when you've only had a Pepsi all day long! I'll post all about our weekend later!
