This is our story....of love, life, and adoption

It's coming.... birthday that is. I won't go there, where I said I would be a Momma in the next year. I said it, I can't take it back. But that was ohh so long ago. It was the beginning of our journey. I was so sure that the past year would be "the" year that I would become a parent. But alas a year has almost come and gone. A year of lessons learned, of hope lost, and found again. Weird how this journey unfolds. But as I am on the cusp of yet another birthday without a child, I am renewed....again. Our baby is a cookin'. And he's almost done. So as we slide into my birthday weekend, I know's almost here. See ya on the flip side. Maybe I'll have a picture..

All stop....

Happy Birthday! I've said it before and I'll say it again -- with as much as you worry and think about your child, you already are a momma! It's coming. And you're already ready already.

Happy Birthday Ann! I was reading poems today and this one made you think of you (It's written by a father, but I think the sentiments hold true)

"A wonderful thing is a breaking wave,
And sweet is the scent of spring,
But the silent voice of an unborn babe
Is God's most beautiful thing.

We're listening now to that silent voice
And waiting, your mother and I --
Waiting to welcome the fruit of our love
When you come to us by and by.

We're hungry to show you a wonderful world
With wonderful things to be done,
We're aching to give you the best of us both
And we're lonely for you -- my son!"
(from To my Unborn Son by captain Cyril Morton Thorne)
