One Week

Monday, May 30, 2011
Today marks one week since we have officially been waiting. The first few days I found myself glued to my cell phone, just in case. Then, this weekend we got out, ran around, cleaned our boat and put it in the water,  watched some movies and just completely enjoyed ourselves. Just knowing we could get that call anytime, be it sooner or later, has given us a new hope. We seem to be sleeping better, enjoying each other's company, basically feeling like a "normal" person again (well, as normal as we can be). At one point this weekend, I found myself in tears because I realized I was actually feeling happy again. I couldn't believe it. I still feel like the elephant in the room when I'm surrounded by families, but it's not as bad as it used to be, and that feels good. I'm hoping, praying, pleading, begging that this feeling sticks around for a very long while. :)

  1. I know it probably seems like it took an eternity to you, but I'm pleasantly surprised to see that you have crossed all the hurdles (& time frames) that come with adoption & are patiently waiting for your call. You are a great mother & you will get the chance to be a mom to another child. I hope you don't have to wait too long. I've never followed anyone start to finish & it seems overwhelming. We are probably going to try to adopt a SN child (probably CP) at some point so I try to suck up as much info as I can.
    Congrats Momma!

  2. This post may have been a short one, but it sure packed a good punch. So glad you are at this point. It's amazing how long we can go on just survival instincts alone. What a great feeling to just have some happy back. Love this.
