4 Months || My friend Allison let me try on her baby carrier (there are just so many out there! As is there with all baby products I am discovering). Her dog, Sam, was a very willing participant in being the "baby".
5 Months || At the end of March, I get to return to the Jamaica Deaf Village for the third year for our Spring Break trip with Fuse. I got this last year when I was at JDV for Baby Windsor. Hope next March there will be a baby to put in it!
Sorry for the lack of update at month four... waiting doesn't really look much different from month to month. With the likelihood of waiting for a year and a half, were just barely getting into the waiting. We're in a big limbo time period that simply looks like reading adoption/parenting books, praying for our birth mother, and fundraising. Last I updated, we just hit $18k and now you guys, we are over the $19k mark in just two months! Ive said it before, but I have to say it again, you guys have no idea how encouraging each time someone gives to our adoption fund, making us that much closer to our $25k goal. At the start, that number seemed so very big and wondered if it would even be possible. What I love is how from every part of our life (I really do mean every... childhood friends to friends of friends) want to support us and its just mind blowing.
Somedays are harder than some to just be waiting, with unknown when it will end. Between now and then, Im thankful for friends who share their babies with me, these days its like therapy to get to hold sweet little ones. Doesn't mean there are not tears and some days can be hard, but hope always seems to be around and easily seen. Grateful for this hope that carries us, and will keep carrying us through.
