A year in the making

( This is James at two, I just love that he is holding the world. Who would have guessed how true this would be for us!)

A year ago today Randy and I came to the decision that we wanted to adopt again. We had started infertility work ups and were on the path to in vitro thinking that is what each of us wanted. I was doing it for Randy, I felt like I needed to do everything in my power to give him a child biologically. The truth is I just wanted another child and really adoption would have been my first choice at this point even though in the past I truly wanted to give birth. I knew how much adopting James had changed our lives and that birthing a child is not the only way to be a mother in fact it takes a whole lot more than giving birth to be a mom. Not that I would mind if I ever become pregnant, it is just not as important as it once was. Now the funny thing is Randy was going through with the infertility work ups because he thought that it was I wanted most of all, hmmmm ? Well one night out of the blue we started talking and it all came out that what we both desired was to enlarge our family and adoption for us is the answer and what we want. What is more we both believe with all our hearts it is what God has for our family and every time I look at James or hear him laugh I know just how perfect Gods plan really is, He knew from the start what would be our perfect family and I have no doubt that Miah will be everything we could possibly want in daughter and more. The call to China has been in my heart for a long time and Randy and I knew from a young age that we would adopt weather we had bio children or not so to me this is just more evidence that the Lord had already carved out our family and we just needed to catch up to it. We have peace knowing that no matter how long the journey it will come together and Miah will be home with us some day soon.

Working out the bugs

I am still working out all the bugs.

Well I have moved and since your looking at this page you already know that! Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see a comment or two from you. I wanted to also share this snap shot of James. He came running in the house not to long ago with a huge smile on his face and when I asked him what he was doing he said "I am digging to China." Needless to say my jaw hit the ground, where did he hear that from? To be honest I do not think he did hear it any where I think he was just being James and James would dig to China.... He loves dirt! So I asked him if I could come too and he told me he did not know if I would fit since he had only planed on bringing Miah home through the hole. AWWWW got to love that. Well I asked to see his hole and here is the results...
He dug all day in the dirt as happy as could be.

James and I as well as Randy are overjoyed with the fact that we have made it through the review room and are now waiting to be matched with our Miah!!! It is a weight lifted off our shoulders now that we know everything was in order and up to CCAA standards. Now how much longer will we wait? That is the million dollar question, and one that only time can answer. We are holding on to hope that it will be the 12 month mark and with our 9/12 LID that would make it Sept. Only five months away. Oh please Oh Please Oh Please!!! For now we will celebrate this mile stone it has been a while since we had good news to be happy about.
