12 months, loving our leah

Today we celebrate 12 months of this adoption journey. I had hoped that by now we would have our referral, and have seen her sweet face, but adoption never happens like you plan it. So, I will celebrate the fact that we are indeed 12 months closer to our daughter than we were a year ago. I have been anxiously awaiting the day I could write this post. I really do not know why, it is not too exciting. I think I figured when I got to find the number 12 clipart and upload it onto here, we would be "there". "There" being the place you want to be in adoption, forward, with a picture of your baby to prove you are getting a child. And "there", not "here". "Here" being waiting. But, even if we did have her photo, we would still be waiting to go get her.
We love you sweet baby girl and anxiously await the day we will find out who you are. Our family is missing you.

On another note, this will be my last blog before going private. I just had to get that one year blog in. Blessings to all of you , and thanks for the great support I have received over this past year. I will be sending invitations to our private blog for all those who requested.


  1. Congrats on hitting the one-year mark. I know you're not where you want to be, but you are right, you are 12 months closer than you were last year. And it sounds like you are making progress towards where you want to be, which is fantastic. Hope you do something fun to celebrate. I have found you just have to appreciate every little step of the way. It's the best way to stay positive about a process you have so little control over.

  2. 12 months closer... I like that! 12 months hit me kinda hard. Was totally expecting to be holding a picture by then as well, so I know it's difficult!

  3. Hoping & praying your wait isn't too much longer! Waiting for something so wonderful is so hard.

  4. I know 12 months into the process you thought you'd know who your daughter is.... I hope it's really, really soon! Thinking about you.

  5. Happy one year. I like what Jenny said 12 months closer!

  6. Every day that goes by brings you closer to that referral. Hang in there! Are the workouts helping?

  7. I feel like you are soooo close!!! Hang in there!
