Well, it’s been a month to the day since we sent our CIS approval to the Ugandan orphanage that I can only assume is the current home of our sweet baby. Imagine that… the walls of one little orphanage hold both our child as well as the approval letter that names of Brad and me as hopeful adoptive parents. Things are beginning to come together. It is precious to think that even in that capacity, we as parents are “under one roof” in a way with our child.
We were told to expect a referral for our child within one to three months. One month has passed, so I suppose any day now, we could receive an email holding some precious information. What will I do when I get it!? Will my heart pound out of my chest? Will I be prepared? Probably not… with adoption, you always expect that the wait will drag on and on, so I’m sure that my heart will be expecting a delay more than beautiful, world-changing news!
Oh, to open an email that tells us our babies sex, age, health… above all else, to hold a PICTURE of this little one whom I love more than words could express! I truly think it will stop my heart!
