Dear Finn,
It is Wednesday.
Which means we leave for Uganda in four days time.
Five nights until I kiss your sweet face.
Five afternoons I must distract myself.
And then, then my dear sweet one, you will be in our arms.
I will cover you with kisses from head to toe.
We will rock you to sleep that night.
I will fight your daddy to hold you. All. day. long.
You will steal our hearts and it will be like you were always with us.
We will be three.
Perfect. Complete.

I had stopped keeping track of how long we had left because I couldn't think of anything else.
So I made a resolution to finish my projects and then I could daydream as much as I fancied.
It lasted for about a day.
In the end, I always find myself right back where I started, staring off into the distance.
Catching a glance at a calendar.
Counting down in my head.

Dreaming of you.

I love you my little man.
Your daddy and I are coming for you just as fast as we can.
Much love.
Mommy

You are in my prayers as you prepare to journey to your son. I'm not familiar with your adoption process so I was happily surprised when I learned you would be travelling so soon after receiving your referral.

I have been approved to do a concurrent China adoption before my first one is complete. I hope to identify my child soon (off the Special Needs List) and be able to travel this summer.

I hope we can hook up when the time is right. I, too, live in the East Bay.

Oh my, such a very short time and you will have your sweet litle one in your arms. Does that mean he comes home when you come back?

Abi,
I've been following your blog but haven't commented before now. Just wanted you to know that I will be praying for you and thinking of you as you travel to bring Finn home. I've been following your mom's blog and corresponding with her since December 2008. Our family looks very similar to yours (a few more adoptions to go for us!) and my oldest son and his wife are adopting too! Can't wait to see the photos of you holding baby Finn!
Love and blessings,
Teresa

Okay, I can't wait anymore! Can't help myself, had to post even though I'm just a stranger on the other side of the World. I check in here daily to see if you've posted details and perhaps pictures...

Hope you are having a lovely time bonding with your precious child.
