May 12, 2008
Well, I guess you could call it an anniversary. Our paperwork arrived in China 24 months ago to the day. Our official Log In Date, 5/12/2006. Who would have thought, 2 whole years later and we are still telling everyone, probably next year. I feel like I have said, probably next year, about a million times. At the rate we are going, we will probably see our 36 month anniversary, but I hope it does not go much past that.
I know there are so many people out there waiting for their first child and nothing could describe how hard it must be for them. We are so fortunate to have two beautiful children, but I still think about our China Baby and when we will finally meet her, what will she look like, and how old will she be. I try not to dwell on it and live my life for the here and now, but when I look at the calendar and realize how long we have been on this journey it is difficult. I think the simple fact that we have no idea is what is the most frustrating. If someone said, it will be another 18 months, that would be better than not knowing anything at all. All I can say is time will tell and we are in this for the long haul. We will enjoy every minute of every day and make the most of the beautiful family that we are so blessed to have.
