my heart is full again

Today was such a good day. I can breathe again, and I feel as though one thousand pounds has been lifted off of my shoulders and all of the knots in my stomach have disappeared. I woke up early this morning with the thought that maybe Santa might have emailed me updated pictures of P early for Christmas. I hurried up and checked my email, and there they were. The very first message!

She is so perfect and adorable. She has a fabulous smooshy faced grin. I am so thrilled to have seen my baby smiling and happy. She was holding the care package that we recently sent her, and there is a picture of her holding the photo album with pictures of us. It makes it all feel real again. She has gobs of hair that will be perfect for bows and piggies and you can bet that she will be wearing one moments after we first meet her. She looks happy and healthy and is certainly well-fed!

I couldn’t resist posting a few more tidbits, so here they are. In case you didn’t already know, that’s my baby girl!!! πŸ™‚

I just love her. Thank you Santa for making my wish come true! I am excited because my perfect morning is going to end with a perfect evening at my parents house for a Christmas Eve dinner. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

    She is beautiful. Some of your posts hit so close to home, I cried while reading them. I adopted my son. We did a domestic adoption, so it was a bit different. But, I think I might know a bit about where you are, where you have been. Let me just say that where you are heading is beyond words. I still have to pinch myself each day to really believe that my little Jack is home, with me, my son. I’m going to follow your journey. I can’t wait to read about the moment you are in each others arms for good.
    Sending you all my good, positive thoughts.
    Peace and love.
