One Year Later

Thursday, September 05, 2013
What a difference a day makes, right? One year ago today we got the call. I'll never forget that moment. It felt like a dream.

"This is the call you've been waiting for!"

What? Really? Did she just say what I think she said? Indeed, she did.

This past year has been incredible and eye-opening, exhausting, both emotionally and physically, liberating and just plain fun.

I look forward to each new day with our cute little bug. Some days I wonder if I am dreaming. It just seems so surreal that she's finally here. How did we get so lucky?

She is, without a doubt, our pride and joy. I wish I could find the words to thank her birthmother for choosing us and believing in us to love her daughter, and for giving us the opportunity to be her parents. For that we are eternally grateful.

It's hard to believe that this time last year Z was only a wish in this mama's head. Now she's here and absolutely adorable. (Sorry for the love fest,  but not really.) Yesterday, our attorney received the last bit of paperwork she needed to file our adoption petition here at home. We are so excited to know that we are finally in the home stretch! For all of you future adoptive moms out there, don't give up hope! It will happen and as silly as it sounds, it truly is worth the wait.
