4 years ago we received the greatest blessing we ever could have asked for. She delivered herself before the doctor could even get a gown on. She didn't cry until they were halfway through wiping her down. Then when she was placed in my arms, she immediately stopped crying. For the last 4 years I have watched her grow. You know what I have found? She has a heart of gold. She is kind, sweet, caring and brings joy to everyone around her. She is smart,-so stinking smart, has the memory of an elephant and is so much fun. She loves people. She loves games. She loves being outside and adventures.
Honesty coming- One reality of adoption is that the more kids you have the longer it takes to adopt. There are a lot of expectant momma's who prefer childless couples and that's 100% ok. But through 3 years of trying to adopt again and 3 failed adoptions I wish I could show others what having a sibling like her would be like. A big sister who would love nothing more than to love and spoil a baby. She is constantly trying to "buy things for our baby" and she puts some of her toys aside "for our baby." She practices holding her dolls and when she can get her hands on a real baby she is in heaven. She wants nothing more than to be the world's best big sister and I truly believe she will be.
So maybe someone out there will read this and decide to give us a chance to grow our family. To see the love that our family of 3 has to give. And just maybe we can become a party of 4.
