We have been on the waitlist to adopt for 10 months last Monday!
Our Ethiopian girlie has been on my mind a lot recently. The unknowns and unpredictability of adoption can be daunting, but I am learning to find excitment in it.
How old will she be when she joins our family?
Will she have tight corkscrew curls or loose curls?
Will she be sassy? (I've heard Ethiopian kiddos have some sass!) :)
Will she enjoy Ethiopian food?
Will she be ours in 2 years or 4?
When we first began the paperwork chase in May of last year, we had thoughts of what the journey might look like. About 2 to 2 1/2 years of being on the waitlist. Her nursery would be our 2nd bedroom in our apartment. And surely, she would be our first child!
Now, just over a year later, the wait time has practically doubled. We are moving into our first house. And she has an older sister on the way!!!
I love to think about having two girls. Sisters. I never had a sister. I grew up a tomboy, playing with my older brother. My husband has 3 brothers. So, this sister thing? It will be new to all of us!
I have so much joy knowing that I AM going to be a mama of two sweet girlies!
