CELEBRATING....

YEARS LID.......


I mentioned to my mom that March 7th was my 24 months or 2 year LID. Man oh man, did my parents shock me when they showed up on my front porch with these beautiful flowers and the sweetest loving note......


"Lisa-


We've been thinking about you and your LONG wait for Tate! Hope it cheers you up to know our hearts are with you!


Love you, Mom and Dad."

What amazing parents I have... thank you for helping me "celebrate" this major monumental milestone in this long wait.

Lisa,

You're a stronger woman than me & that's a fact. I honestly don't know if I could've ever waited such a wait as you've been doing, and with more grace than not I might add. What an amazing thing to one day be able to share with Tate... that you loved her so much you waited so long and never lost hope. Tate will be beyond proud of her Momma & feel just as blessed as you will be of her. *BIG HUGS* from both myself & miss Ruby Roo.

All our love,

-Us.

Celebrating 2 years!!! When our families join in it makes it extra, extra special!! What a beautiful gift and note from your parents. Somehow, knowing they're truly there in the wait with us and celebrating these moments makes the wait a little eaiser. Your parents are the GREATEST!

Congratulations friend!! 2 years behind you which means you're 2 years closer to Tate!!! Yippee!!!

Congrats! I don't know whether to hug you or cry that we have to celebrate this dang holiday! I wish none of us had to celebrate 2 year LID (heck- I may be celebrating 3 year LID the way it's been going).

You're getting your referral this year- I know it! That's got to give you some hope.

You are getting so close! You are 6 months ahead of me and you will see your sweet Tate far before I see my Sarajune! Congrats on making it this far. You deserve those gorgeous flowers.

What a sweet thing for your parents to do!!! I just posted on my blog the thought that came to me this morning-60 something LIDs ahead of us and 730something LIDs behind us. Made me realize that we really are close. Hang in there!

How sweet of your parents to recognize the wait with these flowers! What a nice surprise. It's always nice when friends and family recognize and support the wait. Sometimes it seems like people have forgotten since it's taking so long.

Tracy said...

OMG - what amazing parents! Those flowers are great! We know your wait is long, but we keep checking in to see what power tools you are stalking and finding use for on your wait.
