I am having a hard time right now waiting for our little one to find their way to us. It's been a long road and I am feeling a little discouraged. I believe it will happen in God's time and I know this to be true because we have Sam as living proof! BUT...... it's hard when your heart aches for the baby that you want so badly. Thank God for Sam and his sweet smile and hugs. He makes the waiting tolerable. He also reminds me of what a blessing we receive when a mom picks us to love her baby forever and for that I am grateful. I know the wait is meant to be, I know we have to be in the right place at the right time for the special mom and baby to find us. Thank you to my incredible hubs and my family and great friends that put up with my craziness while we wait for God's timing to be right!
I saw this quote on This is a Site for Birthmothers by Birthmothers and like they say, its all in the timing, it's exactly what I need right now!!!

“Life is all about timing... the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable... attainable. Have the patience, wait it out It's all about timing.”

This is me trying to be patient! :)

because...this is the blessing we got with patience and timing before, SAM!!!

Happy Mother's Day

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much...
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom ...

We have had a fun filled week. We had a blast at Chucky Cheese. Sam got lots of tickets and then all he wanted with them was candy. He loves playing basketball and loved playing fireman on the cool game they had with a hose and all. We also met a really nice couple who was in NY because they just adopted a baby. They were waiting for ICPC to clear to go back to Missouri. The baby was very sweet and they were so happy. Boy, was I a little baby envious. The nice way of saying jealous, lol!!! :)

The rest of the week was filled with playing outside, planting flowers, Sam even helped with that. He is also now watering them too.

And finally the big day, we were off to Philly to see B off to her Prom. She looked absolutely beautiful!!!! We are soooo lucky she asked us to come. We had an amazing time, watching her get ready and then the tons of pics when her date arrived. Then we were off to the school to see all the kids leave. We we got there it was so cute, Sam saw B and was screaming her name from across the parking lot! He was so excited to see her. After that we headed back to her mom's house and hung out with family. It was really cool, her brother and sister's were there along with lots of cousins, aunts and uncles. A few of her mom's friends as well. What was really nice some of them hadn't met Sam yet so thats was extra special. Sam gets being a rockstar from his birth grandma!! Sam was choking on a french fry and she turned him upside down and got it out!!! Can you say OMG! I loved this woman before now even more so. She saved my son from choking. I was soooo scared, we were both crying. Well the night was great all around and we can't wait to see everyone again. I got some really sweet pictures of Sam and B! One in particular made me cry. I go upstairs when she was getting ready and I go in the room and see Sam helping her put on her shoes. It was too sweet for words.

Hmmm... what else? Well we have been having some major water gun fights! We got supersoakers for Sam and boyyyyy is he loving them. Two days in a row we were soaked. Yesterday when Kenny got home from work Sam and I ganged up and got him!! I am guessing it was a welcome surprise since he worked a bike race all day in the heat and sun. Speaking of that, his head got really sunburned. OUch!! This is our new news for the week. See ya soon! :)
