I just got an update email from our adoption coordinator and when I read this sentence I just stopped and stared at it!
"A very happy 2011 to you - the year your daughter comes home!!"
Our daughter, we DO have another daughter coming to us, is in Uganda now, but will be with us THIS YEAR! It's actually going to happen.
Right now I feel as though I just went in for my first ultrasound and have the realization that there really is another little life that is about to join our family! You know, that feeling like you've known all along that this is imminent, but it has finally become real to you.
All of a sudden, I feel like our family is incomplete. Like someone is missing. There is room here for you, little girl.
This year...is a big year...
Let's Take This Journey Together
In my attempt to find information for our adoption process from Uganda, I became quickly aware that there just isn't much out there. I wanted to create a way for all of us taking this journey together to be able to walk along-side each other. A place we can find other people taking this journey with us. A place to encourage each other during the journey. A place to keep up with the family after the adoption is finalized, because, let's face it, the adoption is only the beginning of this journey!
If you are in the process of adopting from Uganda and are blogging about your journey, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the hopefully growing list of people who are bringing these orphans home!
