As this year comes to an end...I am reminded that I have been in the adoption process since July of 2008. As we inch closer and closer, I can't believe the amount of time that has been devoted to this journey and I can't imagine us taking any other path. As I stare at my son's pictures and dream about what our children will do together, I am filled with such hope. Someone once said "believe." This is the time that I truly believe miracles happen. Life happens and we respond to it. I was chosen! My family was chosen for this. I can't wait to see what 2010 brings. How our lives will change and how we will change.
Dh and I were talking the other night and as we are both not sure what the future holds we know that we couldn't ask for anything else in our lives. We've had heartache, suffering immense amounts of joy and sadness but through it all we are more committed to each other then ever. We found each other by chance, and we made a family that I couldn't be more proud of. I've always said that 2006 was the worst year ever...and it's looking like 2009 may be the best year yet!
14 years ago I had a choice, a choice that could have changed my life forever. I don't know where I would be today, but I am certainly glad that I chose the alternative route. Life hasn't been easy, but it's my life. (Was that Jon and Kate?) Kidding aside, I'm proud of the woman I have become, the goals I have achieved and I have so much more life ahead of me. Miracles come in pairs...and in our case miracles come from the other side of the world. We can't wait to get you home little man. Love Mom, Dad and C!
