E came to visit yesterday! We went to lunch and hung out at our house all afternoon. It was so great to meet in person and to have more time to get to know each other. You would think that it might be awkward, picking someone up at the airport that you’ve never met before and spending the day together, but it wasn’t at all! It was easy and comfortable. And now I am even more excited about our match and this journey!!!
Hurry up and wait has been the theme of this journey so far. Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m great at the hurry up part, but the waiting part? Not one of my strengths. Our journey hasn’t made much progress this past month due to some bureaucratic BS the guys are dealing with but we’re still hoping to complete the contract and schedule the transfer for some time in November.
In the meantime, we’ve been texting and skyping and E is going to be here tomorrow afternoon for a visit!!! (He will be in the U.S. on business next week so he came a day early so we could meet in person). We can’t wait! Unfortunately, R had to stay behind with their daughter this time. We’re excited to meet him on the next visit!
