Catch-Up COUNTING

Just getting a little behind..... I wish my behind was getting little. Sheeh. I forgot to document the momentous occasion of turning 21 months LID last month, and just now realize today is ...

Months of LID!!!

With this blog housekeeping task out of the way, let's talk about the real stuff I am wanting to talk about......

Dreams really do come true. During this whole wait time, I have been following along the blogs of other single mommas. I feel that connection, I "get" them, I live vicariously through their referrals and family moments. I love love love seeing a single momma realizing her dream of becoming momma. As this wait has lengthened along (see above) at 22 months for me, sometimes a hot single momma, like myself, starts loosing HOPE that this will happen. Today, I clicked on to Jenny in hopes of seeing Abby in the arms of her momma. My heart. My heart, people started pounding, aching and then BURST!!! Tears of joy for Jenny and Abby, tears of joy for me that this too will happen to me. It means so much to see this reunion for those of us who wait. Really, it means whether I have a good adoption day or not. So, one more month of disappointment I can manage in hopes that next month will produce more days of making families. One more month closer.
