Five years ago...

Five years ago today, we were eagerly awaiting the birth of the baby boy we had been chosen to adopt. He was due mid January, but mom thought he would come early. I was putting the finishing touches on a very blue nursery. I stopped in mid paint stroke with the nagging feeling that our baby would be born today. We were anticipating the call and the long 8 hour drive (and what turned out to be a very painful and unforgettable experience that left us empty armed). I called my mom to tell her about this feeling. I sent dh to the gas station to gas up the SUV, check tires and all vehicle fluids. I finished packing our bags and the baby bags and got people lined up to shovel. We were mid snow/ice storm at this time and it wasn't suppose to lighten up for the next 24 hours. The call did not come, but little did we know that less than 2 miles away, a beautiful 9lb 1 oz baby girl with locks and locks of dark hair and twinkling blue eyes was being born. Fast forward 7 months...we met that beautiful little girl, fell in love and began to collect and paint things in all shades of pink. We are now priveleged to be able to call her our daughter. The entire experience proved to me once again that some sweet souls are just meant to be in your life! She couldnt fit better into our family! We are so blessed to be your mom and dad, Miss K! Happy Birthday!

Re: Five years ago...

The adoption process is so hard. I like to share some of our happiness in hopes that all those waiting will find some encouragement to carry on. I used to roll my eyes when people would say "their is a baby out there for you somewhere", but after we met our daughter, I am a true believer that indeed their was a baby out there for our family. We are slightly quirky and have a strange sense of humor so not just everyone fits our family, but honestly, we couldn't have asked for a better "fit". From the minute we saw those sparkling blue eyes, we knew she was meant to be with us! For all those waiting for your baby to find you...(don't roll your eyes, lol)...their is a baby out there trying to find his or her way to you!
