...begins with one step.
Or in our case, one piece of mail.
It is a little surreal for me to sit and think about the significance of what we did today. We have been trying, planning and hoping for a baby for over five years. We thought about and talked about adoption for a few years and a little over a year ago we shifted our focus 100% to adoption as the means to expand our little family of two. It was hard to be in the position of having the desire to pursue adoption, yet because of circumstances beyond our control, having to wait. Until now. Nothing short of divine intervention got us to that mailbox today. It is a bit overwhelming knowing the long, frustrating, bumpy and sometimes heartbreaking road that lies ahead, but I'm not worried...I got my walking shoes on and my best friend at my side. Bring it on.
