But, I have found myself thinking lately about our next child. I know, it's really early. BUT adoption takes a long time. For years I have been driven to adopt, and I know in my heart a little girl is waiting for me in Africa. I think about her often, has she been born yet? Is she warm, dry and safe? How will we feel once we actually see her? I love knowing that when we move again and get settled I can start up the process again and finally bring our little girl home. Will can know that you don't have to be born into this family to be loved and accepted into it, and Jason and I can give birth to a child from our hearts instead of our bodies. I love thinking about the challenges that will be coming our way, and all the joy we have yet to experience. The DVD's that come from the orphanages in Ethiopia are filled with such bright, beautiful kids just looking for someone to give them a chance. There is one sibling group that will always haunt me, and recently I found out that they got a home all together in Western Washington. I was so glad because they were in danger of being seperated because the little boy had HIV and the 2 girls didn't. Thankfully the US government is allowing parents to bring HIV positive children home to America where they can go on ARV drugs and potentially stop any risk of developing AIDS. So the siblings were allowed to stay together. So, who knows how long it will take, or when I can finally make it happen, but to my children who may read this later, I already love you and can't wait till I bring you home!
