Today, March 8, 2012. We received our referral about two weeks ago. Life has been a crazy happy mess since then. I show my daughter's pictures to anyone who walks within 12 inches as me. I find myself crying with happiness and joy in ALL places...work, home, church,cleaning her room, getting ready for bed. I feel so blessed to actualy become a mother. Some details...
Her Chinese name: Chen YuFei
Her American Name: Hadley Rose
From: Hunan Province
I am obviously a bit partial, but she is the most beautiful baby. She was meant just for us, and that is why we were delayed iin referral. SHE was meant for US!! OH HAPPY DAY!!
For her until I can hold her in my arms:
I hold you in my hear and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.
I know you wonder where we are...what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so go and God will keep you strong.
Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...
Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling: I'm doing all that I can do.
Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.
But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in thewind.
May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I send to you each night.
