by generosity! I am feeling all gushy today so I may as well let everyone know! I just feel so blessed by the people in my life. I was telling my friend tonight that I know, without a doubt, that I am doing what I'm supposed to be doing -- adopting my baby girl. I feel God clearly saying "Yes". Initially, I had a couple of panicky days early on wondering how I was going to do this... but all those doubts have been erased and I feel a huge sense of peace about it now. Huge burdens have been lifted by friends and family through their gifts, support, and enthusiasm. I really embrace the philosophy, "it takes a village", and I cannot think of better people to have surrounding and embracing my future daughter.
This is the first gift I received -- from Sue at work. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous! I cannot believe that people can actually do this... I am blown away! I love it Sue... thanks!
I have spent two straight days pretty much working through the paperwork and online courses. I have made strides... I can see the dent. Yay! Now I have to start hounding other people to write letters, fill out forms etc.. I wonder what I can bribe them with?!?
