It has been twenty one days since we first opened your picture. In twenty one days I know you have changed so much. I wish I could be near you today if only for a moment to touch, hold and snuggle you. I wish I could whisper to you that we are so grateful for your little life and for for the ride of our lives in bringing you home to us. I wish I could touch your long fingers and kiss your tiny head of hair. Each day I wonder what you must be like. I wonder if you are active and smiley or quiet and peaceful. I know so little about you and I so long to know more.
The one thing I do know is that you are in a very wonderful place. I know that through Hannah’s Hope www.allgodschildren.org/misc/HHEthiopia/you are being loved and cared for by the Special Mother’s who have made it their mission to raise each child in their presence with affection, warmth and love. For now they must take the place of your family that awaits you here.
Just yesterday Owen asked, “When are we getting our baby?” We are thinking about you, praying for you and praying for this process to move quickly. We want to get there Miss Ava to meet you, know you, hold you and love you. Keep waiting baby girl… We are on our way!
