The One I've Been Waiting For

This is the post I've waited so long to write.  I really wanted to be funny, profound, clever, something, anything but boring, but as it is, I've got nothing.  Just a heart that won't stop beating so fast and thoughts that won't stop scattering in about a hundred different directions.  So in case you have not yet heard, we have a date!! October 18th!!  We received this news, almost a year to the day we received the referral for our little pumpkin.  Also, we will be traveling a year, minus a week, since our first trip. That's got to be close to some kind of record.

Now that the paperchasing is pretty much over, not to mention the agonizing wait, now my thoughts turn to parenting and being a family. For that is the whole point, isn't it?  Lord willing, Victoria will be our daughter. We will be her mom and dad. She'll have a brother and 2 sisters.  She'll have a big hairy dog that will let her climb all over her. She'll have grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, playmates, and a church family to care for her. She'll learn that Jesus loves her. And she'll teach us a whole lot, too.  We can't wait!
