Eating Crow

...by the way:

YOU WERE RIGHT!

All of you who told me to patient, that OUR baby would find us, that we would find OUR baby. You stuck with me through the pain of Nepal closing, some of you got referrals when we didn't or before us. You stuck with me through some major crazy. But you had faith in our family coming together when I didn't. Sometimes I loved you for telling me our family would come together and sometimes I wanted to strangle you. You told me, as my sanity unraveled, that someday I'd look back and go "Oh, I see, yep, there's my baby."

And you were right. Now, I'll do what you did, and support the families coming after us, and tell them what you told me. Thank you.

Hoping to be eating crow myself soon. More delays getting my daughter home from China. But I'm in happy tears over your handsome son. After all we've been through from losing Nepal to now, I really am so happy for you. We'll join the ranks of successful adoptions this spring. Can't come soon enough! Congratulations!!!

I don't even really know you, but your last two posts made me teary. You son is simply precious. I am so happy for you little family! We have not moved an inch on the list, but reading blogs like your renews my hopes and keeps me going just a little while longer.

See, its working already! I think I may have been one of those people, and yet this morning I was grieving anew our little boy from Nepal now that China has said we cannot adopt a toddler. I was beginning to doubt that there was a little boy in our future like we always dreamed of...and you've reminded me that I needn't lose hope!

I absolutely look forward to the day I can have a double helping of the stuff.
