2 Years Ago Today...

Today is our 2 year anniversary since our papers were logged into China. It has been such a long road. I feel like people think that we are just making up this adoption sometimes. I sometimes wonder if it is real. But it is real and the Crazy Asian Elephant that I refer to in my heading would have had her baby by now. Can't wait to feel her joy!!So, tonight, I send this out to Izabella, where ever she might be tonight, who ever she might be with...

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that’s how it seems.
I know you wonder where we are…what’s taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.
Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin…
Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God hold you in his hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I’m doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you’ll have a famiy for real, not just pretend.
But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.
May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I send to you each night.

As a friend told me recently..
"tie a knot in that rope and keep on swinging!"
