One year ago today we submitted our pre-application to our agency. At the time we were expecting a bonus check from the Army and then we were going to submit the formal application. We only expected it to take another month. Well six months later we FINALLY had our check in hand and submitted our formal application to AAC. I guess God was trying to teach me patience because he knew I would need it to handle this whole process. I consider us a waiting family since the initial application because that is when we really began thinking about Abeni on a daily basis. So little one, where ever you are out there, Mommy, Daddy and your big brothers can't wait to hold you in our arms. We miss you even though we don't know who you are. Mommy aches in her heart to hold your hand and kiss your sweet head. We love you little girl.
