One week ago we got that amazing phone call that told us that we had a little girl. Last Thursday, we received her pictures, and on Friday we got the packet in the mail containing all of her paperwork. Those 3 days were surreal. We spent all of Saturday showing her off to people and sending emails with her picture attached. Sunday we heard from our doctor that Snow Flower is very healthy and all of her medical charts looked good. We signed the acceptance papers Sunday night and mailed them back to our agency on Monday. What a whirlwind of a week!!!!
Now it is Wednesday again and it is starting to sink in. I have a daughter. I have a baby girl. She is waiting for me halfway around the world. Everytime I look into her soulful eyes in her picture- I feel a longing unlike any feeling I have ever known. A longing to have her in my arms- a longing to tell her that she has a home, and a mommy and daddy that will never leave her. It is a week for reflection and internalization of all of the emotions that I have felt over the last week. I just can't believe she is mine- finally!!!
