Oh Happy Day!

This day did not start out happy. I hardly slept at all last night, because I knew I would be going to Logan to a specialist for a tricky root canal. To make a long story short, it was terrible. Very stressful for me and worse than any normal dentist appointment.

Anyway, I can home looking like I had had a stroke. The numbing stuff he used was pretty powerful and didn't completely wear off until 3 in the afternoon. He numbed me at about 8:00am. I am super sore and after I got back, I needed to stop at the bank.

As I was sitting in my bank lane, another car pulled in. It was the mother of the birth father of Wyatt. There was court this morning so I asked her through the window how it went. She said her son had finally relinquished his parental rights. It was a moment of elation for me. I knew though, that she was heart broken. I knew that in her mind, she realized she had lost her grand son. I really feel for her. After that I drove across the street to the pharmacy (it has a drive up window) and started sobbing. What happiness!! What relief to finally know he will be legally mine! ALL MINE!!!! The pharmacist probably thought I was out of my mind! I picked up my pain killers and drove home a very happy camper!!

The adoption date is set for July 15. The day after my birthday! What a gift! I can't wait! In spite of my horrific morning, I feel so happy. I had started to feel like God was punishing me or something. This reminds me that that is not true! Bad things happen to good people and GREAT things happen too!
