It's been four months to the day that we committed to adopt Nadia. It seems like so long ago when I sit here and think back to Sunday, January 10th when we sent the e-mail to Andrea at Reece's Rainbow saying that we wanted Nadia to be our daughter. This picture from the RR website that drew us to her from the beginning is etched forever in my mind and in my heart. It has seemed as if we've been waiting FOREVER to bring her home to our family and we really hope that this will be the week we get our State Department of Adoptions appointment. But as I sit tonight and ponder the 4 month mark since we've started this adoption, I realize that even though it feels like it's taking forever... this waiting period will seem like a blink of an eye compared to the Forever Family that we will become to Nadia. And we will be all the more richer from the lessons learned in the waiting and in the new family we are soon to become!
