Our ladybug is back!

I just noticed our little ladybug in our timeline is back. She had "disappeared" for a couple weeks but it seems she found her way back!

We made it to the 6 month mark!

Another month down and we have officially been LID for 6 months! There is something very different about this particular milestone. I am not sure what it is but ever since we were first LID I have looked forward to the six month mark. Maybe because it is halfway to a year and a year really feels like a milestone at this point. Maybe it is because when we first started this process the wait for a referral was about a year. At that time I imagined if I could just make it to the 6 month mark we would only have to wait 6 more months to bring Mia home and that seemed completely doable. Unfortunately, though while I am happy to celebrate this milestone, I wonder how many more "6 month milestones" we will "celebrate" until Mia is home.

As I have reflect back on our journey so far and especially now I am reminded that God is in control and He has the perfect child chosen for our family. In His timing she will join our family and we will know the exact reason why we had to wait. I am confident that when that moment finally does arrive it will all make sense and the wait will be just a distant memory.

Update on Mia's quilt

Good news! No GREAT news! I found someone to create Mia's quilt! One of my best friends Bev is going to do us the honor of making Mia's quilt! It makes Mia's quilt that much more special to us to have such a wonderful friend create this treasure for us and Mia.

Thank you so much Bev for being part of this keepsake for Mia!

Future soccer player or baseball player?

It finally feels like spring has arrived~at least for today! We are enjoying weather in the 70s but by the end of the week it is suppose to be in the 30s! At least we know spring is on its way even if we are spoiled just for today!

Signs of spring

Yesterday was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine and highs around 60 (at least that is what the temperature gauge said in the car and I am chosing to believe it!) Yesterday was a sunglasses kind of day! The snow is finally melting and spring is in the air!

Another sign of spring is that I signed the boys up for soccer last weekend. I am so excited for the soccer season to start! I love to watch them play! Of course it means a busier than normal routine with all three of them in Tae Kwon Do three nights a week and two of them in soccer but it will all work out. It might be wishful thinking on my part but eventually it has got to get here! I am trying to remain postive and hope it gets here sooner rather than later because I am tired of feeling the winter blahs!
