next week!

Next week we leave to visit Baby for his second birthday. We can't wait. We have no idea what to expect...whether he'll come to us or need to warm up. In my dreams, he comes running into our arms and we hold him as if we never let him go.

We miss him so much but we're doing so much better than a couple of months ago. The ache is still there and we still cry often, especially when we think of how beautiful our life was with him.

We are preparing our home for more children to visit us soon. There's something HUGE in the works but it's too early to talk about yet. You won't believe me when I tell you. Seriously.

p.s. The font I used for my parents' golden anniversary invitations (which I'm still putting together!) is Chopin Script. The secret is to vary the size of some of the initial caps.

I wish you the best on your new journey, both with new little ones and one who has already found love in your own. I am sure the birthday will go just dandy-after all, it's a celebration for a life you gave a "second chance" and protected under your wing, if only for just a bit.

I pray his love is evident in his eyes. And that your heart knows without a doubt that you will live within him forever.
Solid ground
pure love
undending joy
Take roots that time cannot let go.
I hope a bundle of love comes again soon to your home and arms.
I pray this for you .
