It's a New Day

Thank you all SO much for your kind comments. I am overwhelmed by all of you who were so kind in my "dark hour". If you haven't read all the comments, you should. They are a testament of this wonderful adoption community, and a couple of them show you what a wonderful family I have!
We are working with our Congressman's office to get a new appointment. Turns out, my brother (the councilman) is quite connected, and hopefully, can help to get some answers ;) I am still sad, and don't understand why every step has to be so difficult, but I know that God's ways are greater than my ways and have to trust in that.

I was watching a show last night on the DVR and this quote was stated at the end. I thought it was fitting for the day I had:

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They are messengers of grief and of unspeakable love."
Washington Irving

That about sums it up.

I am meeting with a pediatrician here to see if I want to bring Wesleigh to her. I am anxious to visit with her and see what she says about my girl.

I am also looking forward to this weekend. Some of my friends are giving me a shower on Sunday. I'm a little nervous...don't quite know why. I think getting all those baby presents might freak me out! It's been a LONG time since there's been a baby/toddler in this family!

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. There are alot of things that would have to line up just right to be able to travel in January. God can do anything!

Sounds like things are moving in the right direction...keep us updated!

And about the Baby Shower...
I know how you feel. When we adopted Shea almost three years ago, my friends gave us an amazing Baby Shower. And, it was so weird (and wonderful)because it had been 15 years since we had a toddler around!!!

Just enjoy!!! You will have a blast!!

OK - I just want to hug your Daddy!!! What a blessing to be loved so dearly by a Godly man like that.... What an example he must have been to you growing up and to your precious family now. You are blessed!!

Jen's Daddy, if you are reading this - Jen is so blessed!!! And, wow, is Wesleigh going to love you! I was blessed to have my Dad waiting for me as I brought Ruby off the plane two years ago.. I will never forget the silent understanding between us as the tear drops fell. Love at first sight! That Daddy/Daughter/Granddaughter relationship is so special!!!!

Thank you for sharing!!!

P.S: I loved Jill's comment about those "horrible horrible" people. Made me laugh out loud!!!
