592 days

Almost 600 days ago, we began the process that would eventually, hopefully, by the will of God bring a new child into our lives.

Tonight, I rocked that child to sleep in my arms, the scent of his freshly washed hair in my nose and the feel of his cuddly baby body heavy on my chest.

"They" all said that when our child came home to us, we would feel like the wait was nothing ... that it had all but disappeared in the haze of adoption honeymoon.

"They" are right.

A quick late night catch up read from the past few days (company still in our midst). . .what a joy fills my heart as I close with the 'they' revelation! I cannot express how happy I am for you ~ the Lord is so good, so faithful - and you, so full of Grace. The very heart of Mary resides in you indeed: A "Be it unto your handmaiden . . .' kind of heart. Simply beautiful! CONGRATULAITONS!
