Looking Forward

Today I am looking forward.

I have been blessed on this adoption ride to meet some amazing women. One of those friends invited me to attend the religious ceremony where her daughter became a part of their forever family. Her family was beautiful, her daughter was gorgeous, and the moment was perfect. I was so honored to attend.

I was able to think forward as I watched the reality of a baby home with her family. She was crying out for her mommy and seeking comfort from her siblings. She was happy. She was beautiful. She was real. I'm not going to lie the moment made me miss my baby even more but it also helped to bring comfort to my heart. Thank you T!

I wish I had a time machine to fast forward you to your happy place with your daughter. I really do.

But, as a not too long ago waiter like you, I can offer you this.... the wait is the hardest thing you will ever do but getting her home will be the sweetest thing you've ever experienced.

I'm so happy you and M were there!!! I smiled when you said "the moment was perfect". I chuckled, actually. Definitely perfect.

We are in September in two more days... and I'm thinking we are getting very close to that moment when your beautiful gal is home, too.
