I am entering these posts into the blog during the summer of 2017. These entries were taken from handwritten journals that I kept during our first adoptions. We had a failed adoption from Guatemala at the end of 2002. Cam entered our lives in the very first days of 2003 through domestic adoption, quite a bit of pain was endured during that time. If only I had known then what I know now.
It’s our second anniversary tomorrow. I can’t believe we’ve been married two years and together for SEVEN now. Each individual day goes so slowly, but as a whole, it seems to have flown by. Is that the way life works? I hope so. I want the time to fly by until Madi gets home.
We finally got more pictures! She looks great. I’m happy because she looks well cared for. She looks well attached to her foster mother and brother. Her crib is so scary though. Paint is peeling and the bars are WAY too far apart.
She’s 11 months old today.
I am embarrassed to say that I spent an hour and a half at Toys R Us yesterday choosing birthday gifts for Madi. I finally picked out a baby doll and matching backpack. I also picked out a foldable booster seat to fit over a dining room chair. That will be nice for all our travels.
I’m excited because the people who accepted the referral right before us have their DNA results back and are moving along. I’m still hoping there is some sort of miracle and we get some movement before her first birthday!
