Blessings in the Wait

We have been waiting 9 months and 3 days ( but who's counting ?). I can honestly say that there have been many, many blessings from waiting. We have really been able to research different special needs that in the beginning were way too scary. We have talked and asked questions to families who have adopted children with special needs. I have gleamed so much info from special needs Yahoo groups and blogs. We have prayed and prayed for our little one. Our boys have really developed a LOVE for their sister and they pray for her each night. I believe this waiting time has been so good in preparing our hearts, home, family and friends for adoption. Although we don't know specifically what special needs she will have, we are preparing for her medical and emotional needs. So, today, I am especially thankful for the wait.... and am at peace.

You are an encouragement to me. Yesterday I got really emotional about the whole thing and just wanted "her." I don't know how to explain that you want "her" when you don't know her, but its real. I know you know.
