I looked back at my archives today, and watched the movie of Abigail seeing her sister for the first time.
Then I re-read my referral story.
And then one of my all-time favorite posts.
I am so thankful that I have a record of this process- not only to give me some perspective if (when) I do this adoption thing again, but also to have it to share with Anna. To show her that for 9 months, my whole life pretty much revolved around meeting her. To show her how much she was loved, how much she was wanted, how much she was anticipated, even before I saw her face. One day, that will mean a lot to her.
And I am so thankful for the wonderful adoption community I have met during this process- and all the support I received along the way.
Now I am going to try to post some pictures over on Gracelings.
