A Year Ago

One year ago my hubby and I were sitting on our couch finishing our application to SMIA.  Wow...A YEAR has gone by!  A year ago I thought by this time we would at least have a referral.  We also were talking about how we were going to tell our family and friends that we were adopting.  I was wondering how they would respond to this amazing news that also came with an explanation of why.  One year ago I felt like I could finally let go of the pain that comes with infertility and truly begin to heal. 

This year we are anxiously waiting for our referral and wondering who this wonderful little person(s) is/are.  What are they doing right now?  Do they have a favorite stuffed animal or blanket?  Are they going to bond us as easily as we hope/wish/pray?

We have been very lucky that there has only been a minor bump in the road and it was easily corrected. I am hoping that the rest of our journey is just as easy and that a referral comes quickly!
