COSMIC


We all know someone who is skeptical and almost negative about our choice to adopt. My friend not only was negative and skeptical about my adoption but she knew for sure that I was going to fork out thousands of dollars and not get my daughter. When she realized that I was still going with the adoption plans, she relented by saying if I indeed got my daughter, then she will be my biggest supporter ....*IF* I get my daughter!!! One day while on a family vacation in San Diego, she comes across this ceramic tile. Her first reaction was that she wished that the mother in the picture had dark hair so that it would represent her and her daughters. All of a sudden it hit her...Thishis picture was meant for me. A blond-haired mother with an Asian daughter. Cosmic to quote her exact words. She knew that because of this COSMIC finding things will work out and I will be united with my daughter.

Sometimes it's the simplist things that make people come around. It is sad that she wasn't at that point when you first told her about the adoption. My friends and family are very supportive but cautious. They would die if they knew all of the "stuff" that I've gotten for my daughter. I am single and not made of money so, of course, I am totally preparing now over these many months of waiting. I cannot wait for a shower and hope that I receive "everything" that I need. Depending on others is scary and not a comfortable feeling for me. Although...I am not afraid to ask for help when I do need it. Ok...I kinda got off on a tangent. Sorry. Glad to hear about your friends enlightenment!

Your friend sounds like a witch. Why is it up to HER and her freaking COSMIC insight to deem weather or not YOU will have a child? That is the ugliest thing you can say to an adoptive Mom to be. Especially considering you have like another 10 months of waiting. Is she going to change her mind and forgo her support halfway through the wait? Is her friendship with you based on "signs"?? ugh!

As you can tell, your post struck a chord with me. I dislike people who are negative just to be negative. I'm glad your friend came around, I just hope she means it now.

Ok your right..."Do you know how that happens" is not all that bad....But yes people do say stupid stuff, and gee...what a pal! Reminds me of my former "best friend" : no matter how good or bad your life was, hers was better or worse as the case may have been. Just could never be happy for anybody. They get what they deserve in the end though...She married my ex-boyfriend (3 guesses why we broke up) LOLOL!! Revenge is best served to other people!

At the end of day - it's what you think that matters, right? I'm glad your friend is a 'full-fledge' supporter! Love the tile!

We large print of that picture framed and hanging in our bedroom. I loved it even before I knew we were going to have a dark haired child!
