Why Adoption Works

Monday, December 14, 2009

Tomorrow is the anniversary of our official wait.  I never thought it would take this long,  and today is a long day for me.

I know enough to remind myself that it is a good thing that the governments that be are crossing their t's and dotting their i's.  And I do not wish for a tragedy to happen to any family, so that our family can grow.

But now that we have committed our hearts to loving a new baby, I am so anxious to meet her, hold her, kiss her and put a huge pink bow in her hair.

A friend was talking to our agency the other day about the extreme emotions and deep love she's felt during her adoption process all before even meeting her son.  The agency staff member reminded her that this is why adoption works!

Thankfully it does.  But what a roller coaster!

For those of you who know me in real life, and have prayed for me the days leading up to today, thank you.  I have especially felt peace.

To say that I understand you're anxious heart and long wait is an understatement. I know that some days can seem like an eternity...especially during the holidays. Praise Him in the wait for the joy that will soon be fulfilled. I'm praying for you and the sweet baby girl that awaits your family!!
Love you~ Tracey
