Almost There

I just emailed our "marketing flier" to the agency!  It was scary to hit send because I constantly second-guess my wording, panic that the computer changed my spelling & grammar, and worry that one line will be out of place.  Call it attention to detail or OCD - I don't care.  No matter what, DH and I are really proud of what we are presenting to potential birth mothers.

When talking to my dear friend Sarah (who is the mother of my lil' Goddaughter, Payton!) this morning, she asked, "Do you feel like a weight has been lifted?"  Her timing was impeccable, as I had just been thinking of the exact feelings this morning.  I feel like there has been a huge brick atop my heart for almost five years and it is finally cracked.  It's doubtful that brick will be lifted until we bring our baby home and begin to live as a family, but that brick is definitely lighter and different than ever before.

And it feels good . . .

I had the same panic feeling when I emailed our final stuff to our social worker. It's a scary but you are right it's a huge weight lifted off of us. May your wait be so very short. Many happy thoughts to you!!

You don't know me, but somehow I came across your blog quite awhile ago. Your sense of humor in your writings have been something I have enjoyed following. Though humorous, I know the heartache too well. My husband and I waited a long time for our son whom we adopted almost 7 years ago. Waiting for him were some of the most hopeful & exciting, but often darkest days of my life. I have wanted to encourage you with adoption for a long time but know one has to be ready for that journey and in the past I didn't feel it was the right time. I am so excited to see that you are pursuing adoption. I pray your dreams come true as you are on this exciting journey!! Our lives have been forever changed/blessed because of our son and recently adoption of 4 siblings through foster care. During our childless days of longing for a child, never in a million years did we think God would bless us with 5 incredible children, but He did! This is a very exciting time for you! I believe God is the perfect matchmaker when it comes to adoption and if you find yourself discouraged if it is taking longer than you hoped, just remember your baby is not ready yet - but it will all be so worth it as soon as that little miracle is placed in your arms!! I wish you the best and for things to happen quickly as you have already waited so long for your baby. Can't wait to see future posts! I hope you don't mind a comment from a stranger, but I so wanted to encourage you and say how happy I am for you!
