CHECK! Yep, i've completed it. It's a beautiful 18 page summary of what our life is all about and a why a birth mother would choose us. I've been slowly working on it for awhile but the last few days i've added the finishing touches and it's now into the hands of loved ones to make adjustments. We had our US consultation last week, which was in the form of a 2 hour phone call full of great and encouraging information and we have our appointment booked with the social worker for the 19th. We are so excited to get going on this new adventure. I feel like a child in a candy store again with the excitement I have. Just thinking that I will have a new born baby is the greatest feeling. I never thought I would get to experience the lovely first year of a child, the sleepless nights, the teething, the late night feedings just me and him. I can't wait. I know I may sound crazy wanting the sleepless nights, and I will probably change my mind once he gets here, but they are all things I envy when I look at new mothers and I WILL GET TO EXPERIENCE IT. YAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!
The feeling I now have inside is the same feeling I had when our dossier landed in Ethiopia, such excitement, eagerness, happiness and most of all inner peace. Everyday I wake up smiling knowing we have made the right decision. I just can't wait to get all the paperwork stuff over with and then the true waiting begins. I'm looking forward to adding a new counter to the top of this blog.
