One year ago today!






I can't believe it. One year ago my life was forever changed by the beautiful and wonderful Lin Ping An! For a recap on my referral day go here and here . Wow that day was incredible. Just like Christmas actually :) Miss Abba has fit so perfectly in our family that there is not a doubt in my mind that this is exactly what was supposed to happen. My incredible strong and sweet little girl just settled in like she had always been here. Is single Motherhood hard? You bet it is! Would I trade it for my life pre ABBY?? Not for a second!! I love being a Mama to this special little girl and I'm honored to be able to have her as my daughter. The love I have for her can not be measured. I look at her referral pictures today and think about how much both our lives have changed since that wonderful day. She had no idea what was in store for her and really neither did I. It's better then I ever could have imagined. Sometimes I still wake up in the morning and wonder if it was all a dream. Did I really go to China? Did I really receive the most amazing gift?? Is she really mine as I am hers forever? Good things defiantly come to those who wait. For those of you out there still waiting the endless wait, my heart goes out to you. I have not and will not ever forget the pain and anguish of the long wait. I pray that all of your dreams come true soon.

I had bigger plans for this post but unfortunately I am sick sick! I called out yesterday and today and went o see my Doctor (my brother in law) where he diagnosed me with a big puss covered tonsil. (TMI?) Sorry. My rapid strep test was negative but he said that happens sometimes. I started antibiotics today. Thank gaud for daycare is all I can say. I loaded up on motr#n and dayqu% and took a long afternoon nap before going to pick her up. I felt worse on waking cuz I think everything had worn off. It literally took me 15 minutes to get up out of bed and muster the strength to go get her. Unfortunately all of my family are busy tonight so I will have to suck it up. At least she can go back to day care tomorrow. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow too but work is definately not in the cards. I hate to miss work again. Abby thankfully is fine minus her usual snotty nose and a little cough. This is hard tho. What do you guys do???? I can't hug and kiss her like I usually do and I'm sure she's wondering why. We sleep in the same bed too. (thats another post tho) I don't want my baby to catch my bugs!

It's hard being sick! Hope you are feeling better soon and Abby doesn't get the same thing.

When it comes to Miss Abba, things haven't slowed down yet. She has a space in all our hearts that hasn't stopped growing yet. Feel better. xo Mom

Abby goes to Denmark! said...

Happy 1 year (and a day)!!!


I can clearly remember spending my first few days in Denmark trying to find a few minutes each day to sneak online to see if you'd gotten her yet. =)

Look how she's blossomed under your care. It's amazing to watch isn't it.

Anyhow...don't even try not to give hugs and kisses...it is what it is...you or she will get sick regardless. So just give lovies anyhow!!!

No way it's been a year! Okay, if you say so. You and Abby are such a wonderful family...

I can't believe it's been a year! I remember reading your blog when we were both waiting mommas and wishing for our referrals. Then seeing you get the pics of beautiful Miss A. And following your journey to China and how you settled into motherhood.

It gives me hope and strength to endure this wait seeing living proof that it does happen. I'm so glad you've kept up your blog and let us continue to follow your adventures watching Abby grow.

Happy 1 Year!
