I guess this time of year is hard for many people…the weather changes so much, visits with friends and family get lost on the shuffle due to busy lives and sick kids. It’s been a mixed time around here though productive. I recently came back from visiting my brother, his wife, and niece and nephew. We love visiting them and the kids play so nicely together. Though at the same time, it’s hard to be with a family of four as we are waiting for our family of four. Watching Lily with my niece, who just turned 1 recently, is breathtaking and heartbreaking at the same time. I feel for her that she so desires a little brother or sister to care for, feed, play with, and just love to ends of the Earth. Bill and I so want a child to love as well but being adults, we understand that when the time is right and the birth mom chooses us, then it will all be right. We know that we are waiting for that special birth mom to come along who is perfect for us and we are perfect for them. We can wait through the hard times…it’s different when you’re 5. She knows she’ll be a good big sister and I know she’ll love a sibling and we can’t wait to see that and cherish every moment. We have also been busy putting some touches on the new baby’s room we started this past summer. Bill and his dad spent days working on building 2 rooms out of 1 larger room, one for Lily and one for a new baby. Lily’s room is complete and the baby’s room is built, closet doors on, and primed…waiting to decide about paint colors and to set up till something gets more real. We feel content knowing that we have it ready whenever we need it. We also returned some baby equipment that we used for Lily as it has expired and got a brand new adorable car seat and stroller. We know we’ll be ready with things when the time is right…we just have to remember that the waiting is the hardest part.
