Bittersweet

I had a few friends get some very wonderful news this past week about their adoptions. I'm so very happy for them -- they get to bring their babies home in early 2009 and one even in 2008. It is just so wonderful since they have all been waiting as long as we have.

So if they are reading this -- and they know who they are -- I'm over the moon for all of you!!!! And can't wait to follow your journeys to bring your boys and girls home. And I'm so blessed that I get to be a part of it. It makes my heart swell with love for all of you.

Friday I went out to mailbox around 1pm and on the front door and the brick around the door there were 11 LADYBUGS!!! It had been in the 30s the 5 days before Friday - but on Friday it was in the high 50s and the sun was shining and the good news was flooding in at the same time. It was another sign. Maybe it's a sign that 11 people will get good adoption news that I know. Or maybe the sun was just shining the brightest on my front door. I'll never know -- but my hope is more good news for all my friends adopting.

Love you all!

Oh, honey. I can't wait until you can post those famous words..."We have news." I pray it won't be much longer. Of course, a single day of waiting is too long, but you know what I mean. Love you!

Sherry,
Sending you hugs. May the sun shine brightly today again. This journey will one day end and all of this will be a shadow in the joy that your children will bring to you.

Sherry, I'm right there with you girl. I feel your pain, but then yes, I am very happy for our sisters. I so want YOU to be a mommy soon. You really deserve that. Hang in there with me. I know you have a wonderful chance a double bundle. Besides I need a sister to travel with. ha

Hi, Honey. You know what those ladybugs were showing you -- it's always been in your heart. Although, maybe it means that you and Sonny are supposed to adopt 11 children! We'll just call you Angelina and Brad from now on ; ) You know me, I love the number 11 for many, many reasons. It will happen for you sweetie. We all have our own personal paths to follow to find our children. I have to believe that we find the child who is meant to be ours when the time is right. Your time is coming sister!
xxoo-
