One Week

Months (years) of agonizing waiting comes down to this, one week.

On June 9, 2010, one week from today, Frink and I will be on our way to Ethiopia. Our long, long journey to Lion will be over. We will meet our son for the first time on Friday the 18th.

It seems unreal to be typing this. I will see my son. I will hold him in my arms. My son, my life, my love.

One week leads to a lifetime, to forever.

One week.

Congratulations! I applaud your willingness to go through the waiting and uncertainty. It seems like the hardest part of adoption would be having to wait to parent the child that has already stolen your heart. I'm so glad your wait is finally over.
