..........we'll have a photograph to put here on this shelf; along with the momentos that we've collected over the last several months to remind us we have a daughter waiting for us in South Korea.

In about 5 or 6 months that picture will come by Fed-Ex from our agency. We'll probably get a call to expect it and I'll probably take a personal day to sit and wait for it. She'll be propped up (remember, she'll be about 7 months old) on a very ornate chair- gold with a red seat. It is the chair that all of the babies are photographed sitting on. Of course it won't just be a photograph; there will also be her detailed medical history as well as information about her mother and father if it is known. She will have a name and we will probably decide to keep it as her middle name. We have yet to decide on a name for her at this time. It's mind boggling to think that she's here already, probably born in June, maybe May - if the timeline continues to be correct. We think about her everyday, and I also think about how heartbreaking it must have been for her mother to give her up. I can't imagine the immense pressure she felt to give up such a huge part of herself - but I will be forever grateful that she made that choice.

  1. We are excited about the adoption too. Our new grandaughter from Korea may not have our looks and our culture but she will "definitely" have both of our hearts.
