The neatest thing just happened in the MPB household.
The day I announced to the world that we are now officially waiting adoptive parents I was overcome with the excitement and love I received via my blog and all of you! The comments were all truly happy and excited! I smile every time I read them.
This coincidence is not lost on me.
While baby gifts are cute and so much fun to open, what amazed me was the love that we clearly have coming at us! The physical items made me realize just how real everything is.
First let me say that we are ever so grateful to everyone who offered their words of encouragement and baby gifts too! I am so excited to see our baby becoming a real part of our lives. I am elated as I think about our future family, and for the first time I can literally see this happening.
Second, what was more important than anything else was the realization that others are sharing in our excitement! We’ve told people in our real-lives about our adoption plans and many people do not get just how excited we are to be growing our family through adoption. Some people that know the details don’t realize the depth of hurt, sorrow and grief that we have had to worked through to get here. And so these people seem to have no idea how much effort and time it’s taken for us to be excited. And most of all, those in real life that we’ve told about our newest achievement of being officially waiting, don’t understand how big of a deal this is. Most of them don’t realize just how much we want to share our excitement. But you my friends, you do!
So, what was really amazing was the realization that so many people are excited for us! For the first time ever, we truly felt like people were actually celebrating this milestone with us! For the first time, we really felt like others are sharing in our excitement. For the first time we felt like people get just how excited we are! And for the first time ever we realized just how excited people are for us!!
So today, I am thankful. Today I am so both honoured and humbled to call many of you my friends. Today I am grateful that no matter what happens, we have love coming at us from every corner of the world. Today I feel more prepared to weather the storm, because I have friends at my side who will help pick up the pieces should I stumble.
The power of love and friendship are amazing. This past weekend Mr. MPB and I stood in awe. You are all so very amazing! I look forward to being able to pay it forward. And, I look forward to being able to share in both your dreams becoming a reality and helping pick up your pieces should you ever need a helping hand.
