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 . . .
