So… I must be the worst blogger in the universe. Thanks Ami, for a gentle prod to update this yet again.
And now for the big news: ZoÃ«’s finalization hearing will be on May 29 at 10:00 AM. After that, she’ll officially be a Burkholder! And that will mark the end of this seemingly endless quest for adopting a child — and only the beginning of a lifetime of being a family of four! What a long, strange ride it’s been…
On the home front, Dante is LOVING being a big brother, helping out where he can and thoroughly enjoying his ability to make his sister giggle. She adores him and he adores her, and aside from some jealousy over mommy and/or daddy’s affections and attentions from time to time, life is good for two siblings.
Unfortunately for Dante, however, we’re continuing our quest to determine the cause of this never ending cough and swollen glands. The poor boy has had more than his fair share of coughs, fevers, and sore throats this winter. The hope that spring would bring relief, seems somewhat ellusive as well at this point. We’ve begun seeing an Ear-Nose-Throat Specialist in an effort to narrow down the allergy-asthma-something else debate… so… hopefully, we’ll have an update on that soon as well..
We covet your continued prayers as we head into the final stretch of the adoption and as we work with doctors to get the little guy some healthier days.
