What's up doc?
Wednesday, November 07, 2007
Yes, we've picked out our pediatrician. I was a little worried because he's male and I wasn't too sure how our little guy will react. But the doctor we finally decided on is very nice, very good, he seemed to have the same philosophy we have on important medical issues. Plus he has a number of other adopted children in his practice and knows personally the IA doctor that we'd used with the whole referral process (which was a nice bonus).

So we're continuing to check off those ToDo's we have. All of the big things are done which is nice. I've been a bit down lately because I've come to grips with the fact that there's really no shot in hell of our court date happening earlier than it should. I say that because nothing happens earlier than it should in Russian adoption.

That means we're just going to have to wait another two weeks before we can start to really anticipate a call about our court date. I was kinda hoping that we'd luck out and one thing, just one thing, would be a very welcomed early surprise. But I think I have a better shot at winning the lottery. Ironically the mathematics behind the lottery is what I'll be teaching my students in the new few class sessions and for the California lottery the chance of winning is 1 in 41,416,353. Which is just slightly better than our odds of getting a court date before Thanksgiving.

    Great quote!

    It does sort of feel like we've been fighting the empire throughout this whole journey.

    But thankfully the force is with US.

    Whatever the odds are, when it happens to YOU it is 100%. So, here is for wishful thinking. (Hey, that thinking got me through the last few weeks of my wait!)
