I just noticed that we sent our adoption application in one year ago tomorrow! I had so many fears back then that we wouldn't be approved, that we would get turned down because we don't make enough money, or already had too many kids. I was already so invested in this, it was as if I was searching for my own lost daughter. And indeed I was. At last we have found her! Here she is, our Jada!
Oh little girl, I long to squeeze you and kiss those little cheeks! You are perfectly beautiful! I can't wait til we can come meet you and bring you home.
