My husband and I leave for Vegas for three days and I am already feeling separation anxiety from my son. I know we need that time together and after all he has been through, he deserves a break, but I know I will miss the little things so I have mixed emotions about two nights without my baby. The neurotic prays nothing catastrophic happens and my goal is to appreciate the vacation, but I am thankful for Facetime and other forms of communication to help ease the pain.
Secondly, I am anticipating my first Mother’s Day after three years of infertility. More important that that, I am eager to celebrate our first Birth Mother’s Day or day of the woman that gave our son life. So thankful for her sacrifice and love…she is amazing! A better post about her later.
Thirdly, our boy is growing so fast. We saw his pure joy in a jumperoo at his sitter’s so my husband convinced me to go out tonight and buy one for him. We are calling it his Adoption Day gift because around this time next month he will be officially ours.
Everyday I am growing more in knowledge of the importance of this adoption and the accepting of God’s perfect plan in me not getting pregnant.
The good news is: I so often forget that creating a baby is so much more than genetics…God created our son in the best way possible then led us to Him and our new family. We were made for this.
