Three Months

Finally. Today marks three months since our home study was mailed to Korea. We were quoted a three to six month wait for referral. I would have been totally shocked if we received the call before the three months.... just not likely. However, we are now officially in the window where it could be any day.... ANY DAY! Our agency is currently still quoting a three to six month wait with an average wait of about four months. Our agency currently does not have many families waiting for a referral so it could happen sooner.

Eden's room is coming along. I picked up her bedding and LOVE it. It is simply perfect. THANK YOU LYNN!!!! I will post pictures soon. Still need to buy a rug, add some knobs to her pink piece, restore the victorian love seat for her room, and sew up a few crib sheets. I find that I can't pass her room without going in. I find myself just staring at her things, looking through her clothes, organizing then reorganizing.

It is strange to think that somewhere out there my little girl is alive and living her little life. I just pray that someone is loving her. I pray that they are taking in all that I am missing... her newborn smell, the sound of her cooing, the warmth of her little body when being held, the milestones she will reach. I pray that someone is appreciating this precious time with her.

Such sweet words. I pray that some day Eden reads this very touching post to feel all the love that was waiting for her. I think of her often and I too think about the day she arrives home - I just get chills. Hang on dear daughter - soon, real soon.

You made me cry. I pray for those things too for our sweet Eden. You can be assured that when we have her, all of her preciousness will be soaked up and then some. She is so dearly loved already. I can't wait for the call from you to tell me she is on her way. This is going to be such a magical time for all of us. Thank you for sharing your journey. I love you very much and know that Eden has an amazing mommy.
