Well, I think my daughters name is going to have to wait until after I meet her. I have a couple of ideas. Thank you everyone from the borderline absurd, incredibly beautiful to the totally unique names you gave me. I loved it!
So much is going on right now. Yesterday at church I became so overwhelmed with emotion during worship that I stood there with tears streaming down my face. I stood in total worship of my creator. I was overcome with joy, and humility. Who am I that God should call me to be mommy to the twins? Many people feel the twins are the lucky ones. If they were "lucky" they would be raised and cared for by their birth family in their country. I am the lucky one. I get to be the mommy to two of God's children. He has entrusted me. I get to be there for them when they learn to talk, tie their shoes, ride a bike, loose a tooth, comfort them when they're hurt, watch them grow into beautiful people and hear them say, "I love you mommy". Wow. Wow. Wow.
I think it finally hit me this past week. We have been in the "waiting" stage forever. Waiting for paperwork, waiting for a referral, waiting to bring kids home, waiting for a new referral, waiting for new paperwork, waiting for a referral. I got really good at waiting, so good that I never planned for this stage. The stage of actually traveling. WAHOOOOo.
Next Monday is our court day. Next Monday is when they officially become a Boster. Then only 13 more days until we are on a plane.
Could it be? Is our waiting actually over?.....
