Fifty One



Its been Fifty One Months since our dossier was logged in.

That's a long time.

(Ahem) That's a Long-Ass Time!

And we are completely on the Brink. On the Brink of everything that I've hoped for and held dear about this new beginning. Of becoming a mother. Of becoming a Family. Of coming into this place whereupon we're meant to be.

Our child is literally waiting for us as we have waited for her. Soon we will come together.

All signs point to Tuesday next week. That's August 17th.

51 months and 2 days.

51 months and two days. Unreal. But now - COMPLETELY REAL! Besides our own, I can't remember ever being so excited for a month of referrals. So so so close.

Finally, the waiting and wondering are almost over! 51 months is a tremendously long time. Today, I hit the 40 months mark. I wish I could say with certaintly that I only had to wait 11 months more, but who really knows?

I'm very happy for you and hope that referral day is perfect!
