When the call came it was totally unexpected at that moment. Although I had been anxiously waiting for over two weeks for the phone to ring, I was caught off guard. I forgot I had given the agency my work cell number and since I have clients in the same area code I assumed the call was business related. I was totally surprised when I heard my case manager’s voice. I couldn’t run to my computer fast enough to see him for the first time. As she was going over the information all I could do was stare at his picture. I wanted to call my husband but I knew he was driving and wouldn’t be able see the picture at that time and there was no way I was waiting a minute longer. As she was going over the information I tried to remain focus on what she was saying but I couldn’t. Every now and then I would make a sound to let her know that I was still on the line.
Seeing his face made everything feel real. I would be honored to be his mommy and I would be immensely grateful if MOWA and the Ethiopian courts agreed.
Next step........back to waiting
