One Week


It has already been one week since we received that magical phone call. One week since I saw my daughters face for the first time. One week since the pain, worry, disappointment, and fear left my body. It has been a week of excitement, wonder, and overwhelming happiness. It has been a week of congratulations and love extended from friends and family. It has been a week of staring at a photograph... memorizing every little line, every expression, and the perfection of her face.

We waited well over 1,000 days for this week to happen... and it was worth it.
