Pay it Forward Exchange

I got a great package in the mail this week from Hannah Claire's waiting mommy, Sarah. What a fun little project!

Now it's my turn to play!

So, here are the rules. I will send something special to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this exchange. You must make the same pledge on your blog. So, if you'd like something fun from me and you are willing to do the same on your blog, let me know! Please make sure you leave your blog address and email in the comment. I will email you to get your mailing address.

My Family

My head is still in the clouds since learning of our baby boy last week. I'm sure that I will be getting very anxious for the referral soon. Right now, I am just so thrilled to have made it this far. I'm content.

I have been very busy getting paperwork ready. Our fingerprints, police letters, and medical letters have all expired. We also need an update to our home study. Everything is well on it's way to being done.

My other project while waiting for our referral is to gather photos. I found the sweetest baby photo album the day we were matched. It is plush and shaped like a little house. It says "My Family" on the front. I plan to fill it full of pictures of friends and family. I want to send the album to our baby via another traveling family. I want to tag the pictures in English and Vietnamese. I'm excited to put it all together.

This has been a great week for us and our fellow adopting families... lots of matches and referrals! We are glad to share this happy time with the other families and hope to travel with some of them. I hope we will have more news to share very soon! A.

Dear sweet boy...

Today I learned of you. I know where you are and about when you were born. The rest is still a mystery. So, I wonder...
Are you smiling?
Is someone holding you?
Does someone comfort you when you cry?
Can you feel Gods hands reaching down to you as I pray for your protection?

Today, I feel one step closer to you. I wait for the day I will see your face and hold you in my arms.

Until now, I have had a dream of you … Today there is a promise of you… and that will have to be enough for now.

I love you sweet, sweet boy.
