My friends, we did it. I am writing this blog with tears in my eyes and a baby in my arms.
Our son was born one week ago today. He is the definition of perfection. My husband and I were both at the hospital when he arrived. I was even allowed to cut his umbilical cord. He is healthy and strong and beautiful.
I have spent the last several days trying to soak it all in and just reflecting on the road that lead us here. I can’t believe this is happening. All I can say is ‘thank you ‘.
Its been almost 3 years since we made the decision to adopt. It has been a long and painful ride. There were times when I really thought this journey was going to break me. But our faith carried us through and here we are.
The impossible happened. I mean, let’s get a brief overview here: I now have a son because of a facebook page. I have a SON because of a FACEBOOK page. Is this real life?
My family is living proof the miracles happen and God is so so good. I want to thank each and every one of you from the very bottom of my heart. Every time you read my words, you helped bring him here to us.
Our adoption journey has not completely come to an end yet. We still have I’s to dot and T’s to cross. The legal side of things still need to be processed. But my blogging venture is coming to a close.
I thought of continuing my blog and sharing my experience as a first time momma with all of you. I’ve really enjoyed writing over the last few years. However, my son deserves my undivided attention right now. I don’t want to miss a single thing all because my face is buried in my phone, typing. We also need our privacy. It’s one thing to bare my soul and make my life an open book to all of you. It’s another to invade my son’s world without his ability to consent.
From everyone in our family, to each and every single one of you: you made our dreams come true. Thank you for helping us bring baby Ross home.
