6 Months Waiting

Thursday, December 1, 2011

Dear Wand lj/Se't lj* - 

6 months waiting for you! Half a year! Sometimes it feels as though the days have flown by; other times they seem to have dragged. We can not wait to meet you!

I want you to know that although your brother or sister is growing inside of me right now I do not anticipate your coming any less. If anything, thinking about him/her causes me to think about you more. Whenever I wonder what we might name this baby I also wonder what your name might be. Whenever I stop to daydream about how I might decorate the nursery I also store up ideas for decorating your room in our home. Whenever the baby kicks me I wonder if you birth mom is pregnant with you right now and if she feels your kicks too. I pray for your birth mom continuously - she is never far from my heart. 

During this holiday season it feel as if someone from our family is missing. I long for you. I think about you every.single.day. 

Just as God loves each and every one of us wholly and completely a mother's love is always expanding & never divided. All the love I feel for your coming brother or sister I feel exactly the same for you. All the anticipation I have for him/her I have exactly the same for you. You are a part of our family and we wait for you with open arms.


*amharic for son/daughter. (I think! There were a bunch of version online that were similar but not exact)

I love this Anna. And I love how you are being so intentional about preparing for both new members of your family. They are going to feel so special. :)
