Today I was thinking about a lot of things. Perhaps it was lack of sleep or just enjoying my job this week. I wrote about my experiences as a pediatric nurse here.
I was thinking about how every experience these days has the potential to make us the best parents for Miss LynnMarie when she gets here.
So many things have impacted us this year like family and friends praying for us, First Fridays, friends having babies, our community group and so much more. Even parents I meet at work who I only talk to for a few minutes have impacted my thoughts. I wish I kept a running log of all the wonderful things parents have said to me when I tell them our plans.
I see how families interact and see how kids are disciplined. I have watched the honesty and sincerity of children. I have loved observing. I am learning so much and that's another good thing about this wait, I have time to watch and learn. I can not wait to learn more about China and the its culture as well.
Friends whom I have met in person, you sooooo rock and my new blogging friends you rock as well. I have enjoyed your honesty and joy. I look forward to learning more from all of you.
Even the children I meet and the patients I have met at work have changed the ways I look at things, in such a good way. I am meeting families who have adopted all around the world and have found such encouragement.
What we are experiencing is so much more than just China or adoption. I can not expain this and for those who are just beginning on this journey, welcome!
Oh and another thing. A couple of posts I mentioned meeting a new online friend who will be on our Disney cruise and the whole read thread thing. I have now learned that this family has been thinking about moving to Marietta which is sooo close to us..How cool is that?
Hope this made sense. If not, I will delete this later. HA!!!!
I hope that we can impact others in the same way.
