THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Monday, May 18, 2009

TA!! We leave June 15th for Beijing to bring Sophia home.


I don't even know what to say. I am completely numb. I just can't believe it. My baby girl. After all of this time. After all of the tears and the frustration. On June 16th, I will kneel down in front of her and look into her eyes for the first time. There it is...my due date, June 16th.
I cannot begin to express what I am feeling.

Kudo said...

TA how great is that. I did the same thing got on my knees when I got to Annalise for the first time I did not what to stand over her. I also did not take her out of her Grandmas arms when she did not what to have anything to do with me. We sat on the couch and I used food to get her close to me and to help let her know she would be ok with me at least I had cookies.

I would love to follow you in China if you are doing a travel blog and would consider an invite. My prayers are with you and your family during this exciting time.

Luna said...

I'm so excited for you!! We're thinking we will leave on June 4th or 5th and they're trying to get our CA for 6/16. Ohhh and the most important part...Getting our girl on 6/8!!!!!! I can't believe it's FINALLY happening!! I pray that nasty flu bug goes away and does hold up our plans!

Luna said...

Does NOT hold up our plans! Yikes, bad typo!!

Margaret M said...

I am so excited for you!!!!! We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers!!!! Time to pack and you will not believe how quickly these last few weeks will fly by. We spend so much time waiting and then you are launched into overdrive! Hugs!!!!

The Things We Carried said...

8:26 a.m. and you have me in happy tears!

You are one of the ones I have prayed for over these years. I have no doubt of God's hand in your whole journey, who could forget the red Mary Janes? I am truly, truly humbled to have followed you and seen God's answers to the prayers of your heart. I will follow yu to Beijing and I will be crying happy tears for you and for your girl.

May God bless you ever so richly and may he give you one of the most valuable things we who did not have a good mother could receive, the long awaited mother daughter connection. Big hugs to you, dear friend!

amy said...

shuey6 said...

This will keep me smiling all day.

Remember -- I know you do -- when I met Catherine/YaYa for the first time... she rejected me. That went on for several days. I am not trying to put a damper on your excitement, I just want you to know that if you need me while you're in China, I am here for you. I am praying over your Gotcha Day and hope it is all you have dreamed of.

I am so happy to know she is coming home.

Arms around you.
Shelly

Dita said...
