So I ordered the book and anxiously awaited its arrival. I read it in a couple days and I'm sure my family and friends are sick of hearing me talk about it. While I started out reading the book thinking it would help me foster the imagination of our son, it ended up convicting me of the way I spend my time as well. I think it is one of the best "parenting" books a person could read. My favorite line was this, "a boy will never develop his character if his world is always kept safe for him." So true and so wise.
We have our last meeting with our social worker this Monday. We will be wrapping up the successful home study and then all that's left to complete our dossier are a few odds and ends. Our goal was to have the dossier complete by June 1st but that's only a week away. :O Some friends of mine have received their court date in Ethiopia and will hopefully be bringing their son home in August. I've followed along through their whole process and its so encouraging to see a family get to that point. It helps remind me that one day we will be there too.
