Adoption Thoughts

Do you know what I was thinking about today? As much I might complain or explain the wait to people, I hope I am not discouraging anyone from pursuing adoption from China. I have been wondering about what I am passionate about and perhaps my passion will be encouraging others to adopt (regardless of being domestic or international). This has truly been the coolest process. We have seen families being made and it just makes my hear smile when I see pictures of Gotcha Days and referral days!

On another note, I am taking care of a sweet little 6 year old named Rebecca Claire tonight who is from China. Her parents used CCAI and gave me so much information. Its been quite cool to talk to this family!

Thank you all for all the love, encouragement you have given Michael and I. As we continue to wait, we dream about LynMarie (orLynnMarie or Lynmarie or Lynnmarie) and what it will be like to hug and kiss her..What a fun day that will be. Until then, we will pray for her and those who will be surrounding her.

We both have new posts over at Amys and Michaels blogs. I am having people ask me random questions to see how honest I am. I have had some great questions. Feel free to visit!!

It really is the coolest process - a metamorphosis of hope on a grand scale. . . but so much more....

It's cool to know others that 'understand' because they are also experiencing it!

It is a process that tries us and pushes us to the limits but will in the end, bring us to our future.

Keep smilin!

Your day will come, our day will come and we are all in this together.
That first hug will take you places you have only dreamt of.
Hang in there.

We got home in December with Malia and just submitted our app to CCAI for number two. The wait the first time was bad, but has only worsened. We will wait as long as it takes for our next cool kid ;)

I can't wait to hug and kiss on your LynnMarie too!

Those are some pretty sweet adoption thoughts!

It's funny how passionate I've become about adoption too. Both kinds. It's so amazing!

In the midst of this wait I think all of us have learned a thing or two about ourselves. It really causes us to think doesn't it?

We'll get through it. It's hard. We aren't going to be happy all of the time. It's important to be honest and seek out support.
