starting to feel
This is really happening! Our adoption process is really moving!
Soon, there will be travel plans. Immunizations. Expenses. Suitcases. Bittersweet goodbyes to our precious Caroline.
Soon, there will be a long plane ride. Africa. Dust, boda bodas, heat, beauty… and an orphanage.
Soon, there will be tiny hands and soft cheeks that I won’t be able to stop kissing. Hair that I have no idea how to manage. A tiny voice that I have cried to hear.
Soon, there will be at least a month in Uganda, petitioning judges and embassies, loving a baby, and forever reconsidering the American way of life.
Soon, we will touch ground in an American airport to be reunited with friends and family who prayed with us for this. Who love this baby we will bring home to them. Who understand that God planned us for each other before we even existed.
Soon, we will no longer have “a child.” We will have children. Siblings. Our new little one will have a big sister who I guarantee will love even more than she bosses. They will be friends. And we will be blessed. Two children. Twice the love, twice the tantrums, twice the laughter, twice the work, twice the joy.
God, is this real!?!?!
