Erin's gift for Abby


My Niece Erin just amazes me with how in tune she is with Abby's pending adoption. She has closely followed right along with me as I journey to Abby and talks about her all the time as if she is already here. A couple weeks ago while I was at her house she disappeared upstairs for a while. When she returned back downstairs she was holding a wrapped present that she made sure I saw her place under their Christmas tree. Minutes later she had removed it and asked that I open it for Abby.



I wish I had thought to take a picture of the gift before I opened it.



Erin and Aunt Jenny!

erin loves her aunt jen jen. abby is not her cousin to be, future cousin, etc., she is her cousin abby and she loves-with all her heart-her so much already. it's good to get a child's perspective on something that's so difficult to endure. her patience doesn't seem to waiver. she just focuses on the end result (if only it were that easy for adults!). no clue what time you'll be landing when you bring abby home, but come hell or high water we'll be there, because she (and us)will have it no other way!!hang in there-love ya

That's so sweet. Please know that your daughters path will join yours soon and you will be so glad that your files were there to be matched together at that exact moment. I don't know why I had to wait while Abbey just got older in the orphanage, but I thank god that our files were in the right place at the right time to get matched. It's hard to explain, but the wait is like a different life when I think back on it, it seems like my real life began with her. You will be on the other side soon! Get everything as ready as you can, I am so thankful for all that I did to prepare.
