On March 23rd, we hit the "we've been at this adoption for a year" mark.
Tomorrow, it will be 4 weeks since we've been matched with Lucy, who already has a million nicknames (mostly given by her daddy).
So how are we feeling now?
Sightly anxious (all the "what ifs").
Like time is creeping by and flying by all at the same time.
Ready (not in the sense that we have her room ready and our suitcases packed).
I find myself taken off guard every time someone says her name to me. Or when friends tell me their daughters are sleeping with her picture, reading stories to her picture and talking about their friend, "Lucy".
Andy and I are in Atlanta today for the annual C12 Chair Training. The last one was in Cincinnati a year ago and I remember working on our home study paperwork in the hotel room. It's encouraging to see how far we've come since that time.
We're feeling pretty blessed to know our daughter's face. And to have been able to share our joy with friends and family over the past several weeks. I have some photos I'm working on posting from our party the other weekend. Hopefully I can get them up tomorrow!
