Rainy Days

    The Little Bear got moved to the next ‘step’ today.  Every time I think I have it under control, I read a post or get an email or see a comment and I end up in tears (of joy) or skipping around the office like a 10 year old! Or wanting to throw up from the anxious feeling of waiting and waiting some more.  Ugh, these next months are going to last FOREVER! On the other hand, the social worker will be here in a week.  In 10 days, we will be moving forward yet another step.  

     10 days, I wonder what you’ll be doing in those 10 days.  What toys you’ll play with, what people you’ll interact with.  It’s supposed to rain in your city over the next couple of days.  I hope your not afraid of the storms, and if it does scare you, and you cry, I hope they’ll hold and comfort you.   I actually hope you love the rain (like your mom). I hope it calms and relaxes you.  
     The first rainy day that we have when you get home, I will probably have to be ‘sick’ and we will spend the day in our pj’s, snuggling and playing (and sleeping) and simply enjoying the warm, dry world inside our house, while the world outside is getting soaked.  And then, when you’re a little older and it rains, we will most definitely go outside and jump in the puddles.  That’s a promise.

    Congratulations to being on the New Committments Page…another step! Just wanted to say "Hi" and tell you Lizzy is beautiful! I've watched her listed for quite awhile and wished someone would go get her…so glad you are!
    Blessings on your journey…

    adopting Joseph who has also had his big step to the new commitments page 🙂

    It is definitely a cry, laugh, jump around and feel sick and nervous at the whole long process all at the same time kind of thing…I get it 🙂

    So excited for you & Lizzy! We fell in love with Lizzy as soon as we saw her. She reminded us of our own sweet baby with DS. We did our best to bring awareness to her thru the world of FB and blogging (http://lotsofloveforlizzy.blogspot.com) and hearing that she's been found is a dream come true. Will continue to pray and we look forward to reading all your updates!

    I just wanted to say CONGRATS!!! Lizzy is soo beautiful and I'm SOOO happy she has a mama now! I've been advocating for her for a while.

    I would love to get to know you better if you want to email me – forhisgloryhandiwork (at) gmail (dot) com. Oh and I love your name! 🙂

    Thank you for taking this leap of faith to bring her home!!!

    I have to tell you I don't know you. But I've been praying for you for months. As soon as I saw Lizzy's sweet face, I prayed and prayed and prayed for her to find her forever family. IT was around Thanksgiving. I will be following your journey and continuing to pray for your family and that sweet girl!

    Congratulations to you as well! It's nice to have such a great community of people who 'understand' and can share. Knowing other people are in the same place (or have been there recently) and can bounce the laughter and tears off each other is truly a blessing! Joseph is a lucky little man to have found his forever home!

    WOW!!! You've brought me to tears, I am continually amazed by the outpouring of love for one little girl. I feel so truly blessed to be able to be bringing her home. She has already touched so many lives and I know she will touch so many more!! (mine included, of course). Thank-you is not a strong enough sentiment for how I feel about the extra efforts you have gone to, to help Lizzy come home and the continued prayers are definitely needed! Your daughter is so lucky to have a mom like you. Who gives so much! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

  • Sarah

    Thank you for your advocating. We both greatly appreciate it. I never realized how much I love I could have for one little girl, but it seems she draws that feeling from everyone who sees her! I can't explain how blessed I feel to be able to be the one to bring her home. And, I will most definitely be emailing you more! But wanted to say THANK YOU!!! …and great name, too! (especially because it's spelled correctly) =)

  • Sarah

    Thank you for your prayers. I have felt them, definitely, and I'm positive Lizzy does as well. And they will certainly be needed as I continue on in this process and for Lizzy as she spends her days still in that orphanage! I will keep everyone up to date on our progress and will continue to share when she is home! She is a pretty amazing little girl to be touching the lives so many people.
