Five weeks from today, as of right now, I will have already held my daughter! I can't believe in just five weeks, she will be in my arms and our bonding process will begin. I'm hoping she will be very interactive with us. I'm hoping she will not be terrified of us. I'm hoping she will smile at me by the time we leave.... in all her pictures I have not seen her smiling. I so desperately want to see my little girl smile. I'm hoping I will somehow manage to get a hug out of her. I think that one hug will carry me thru until I can bring her home with us forever.
More than anything, I hope she is healthy. I hope she is happy in her current "home" and I hope that she transitions to us easily. That is a lot to ask for, I know, but I'm asking. I also hope that she not only grows comfortable with me, but with Tim as well. I can't wait to see Sara interact with Tim. I can't wait for Tim to be holding his daughter! He is getting very excited about this adoption and bringing our Sara Joy home.
Five weeks!!!!! It's getting closer!
