Nadine, of course we can meet up before I go! Let's do it once I get pictures of Addie - since I can't post them on the internet, at least you'll be able to see them in person!! I'll drive to Meridian, too... I don't want you lugging all three of you to meet me halfway or anything like that!
aww I love you. You best let me know as soon as you get pictures, I would so love to see her.
omg, sandy how SOON is march.. wow. And of course once you get settled I'd love to see all three of you.
Gosh what an amazing journey you have ahead of you, a LONG flight that is going to seem longer because of the excitement, months in a foreign country (thankfully you have a place to stay with familiar people) and meeting your little girl. Gosh I'm tingling.. it makes pregnancy seem dull in comparison :rofl:
I knew this would come together
January is basically over, February is the shortest month of the year and then March!!!! It will be so soon, it's poetic.
Is this orphanage also close to your relatives? Will they still be able to help you out?
Nadine is right. Pregnancy does sound boring compared to your adoption story...
Very happy for you!
Aww, you ladies are so sweet - you're making me all nervous and excited!! Asha, you're right - March is really soon! Oh my goodness, I feel so unprepared! I'm going to be a mom?!?! I know nothing about that! Okay, I have to calm down, I'm starting to hyperventilate. Is that normal??
Julia, will you be able to make the meet-up so you can see Addie's pictures too?? I'd love to meet you before I go! And of course, we'll all have to get together once I get back too, so you can meet the princess in the flesh!
Oh Asha, when do you find out the sex?? I had a dream you were having a boy!
I have a feeling you are over-prepared to be a moomy! (I mean it in a good way) The thing is we never FEEL ready... that happens when we finaly have the baby. Stock up your house with diapers, baby shampoos and lotions ( I assume you have clothes, and gear)and you can't be ready enough. Your heart is full of love for this little girl of yours already -that's all you need. Well, maybe patience too for the cranky days.
As for sex of the baby... I have a regular appt on Fri the 26 th. I hope to schedule an ultrasound appt. then. Some girls on my birth board already know. So far mostly boys. I don't really have preference this time around!
