Last year

December 3, 2009
After the emotional couple of weeks we had experienced...
the super "high" of finally applying to an agency...
the super "low" of finding out the normal wait times had doubled
between the day we faxed our application and the day we got our packet of info...
and the "low" of wondering "NOW what?!?"...

After those things had settled a bit...

Someone asked me if we had considered "Waiting Children".

Believing they were all going to be teenagers with 
super difficult emotional issues we weren't prepared to deal with... 
we had not considered "Waiting Children".
Well... my curiosity got the best of me.

I googled "agencies with Waiting Child listings".

And what I found...
after mere hours of searching a few agency websites
was this:

Clockwise from top left... #5, #6 and Baby Boy #7.

They were tiny.
They were precious.
And they were perfect!

One year ago today...
It's amazing.
