15 months

Month 15 is here, a place I never thought I would be. The last month has been a tough month, but not on the adoption front. Since the amazing referrals in the last few months, my adoption attitude is doing pretty good. I figure we are lucky to still be on this journey an we are even luckier that things are moving along quickly. It's been a tough month because my husband was not with me for another month. All month I have been counting down the days to his arrival and it was a hard count down. As mentioned in previous post I ache for him when he is not here.

Yesterday I got to pick him up at the airport, it was amazing. The anticipation waiting for him to walk through the doors was crazy, i couldn't hold back my tears. As I was waiting for him I thought to myself, "if you can't handle this how the heck will you handle flying across country and waiting to see and hold your son? ", something I wonder all the time.

Anyways, Chris is home now, although for a short time and I'm loving every minute of it. I wake up smiling and smile all day long. He is the best and having him here makes me a better person.

On to 16.... please let there be more referrals this month.

Wow Natalie. I can't even imagine how incredibly hard that would be to have to be apart that long at a time. I hope your house sells very soon so that you can move and be together again.

I'm glad things are happening on the adoption front and I will pray that things continue to go smoothly and quickly with Imagine referrals.

Take care! Alysia
