Our wonderful social worker encouraged me this week to, “Do you best to wait patiently! Enjoy your babies now, and the right day will come for your baby from Ethiopia!”
We are doing that. It would be silly to do anything else with this undetermined wait time. But a sweet reminder that I should write in a baby book or journal somewhere.
What I should NOT do is go to youtube and watch “gotcha day” videos. No, really. Don’t do it. I thought, “I’ll just watch one,” and an hour later, I was still watching them; a sobbing, puffy-eyed mess.
But, I do ache to be in Africa. Maybe one of us will get to go there before we go for our “meetcha” and “gotcha” days. We’ll see. Until then…
