I'm counting down the days until travel...Yeah! To keep from going crazy with waiting, my little man has emotionally been put into a box in my brain. Then today a picture of a little boy's hands opened the box. McKenna has very girly hands, she long fingers ....very fragile. Tommy has mitts...very strong and chubby. What kind of hands will Ian Have?? All at once it hit me in 17 days we can touch for the first time. Hubby and I were discussing this adoption feels like FOREVER. It has only been 11 months from start to finish but good grief.....PAINFUL.


  1. Wow, "All at once it hit me in 17 days we can touch for the first time." That says it all. You are almost there. Just hold on, before you know it you will be back home.

  2. Soon, you will hold Ian's hand! Hope the time goes quickly so you can go get your little boy!
