I haven't been here lately to blog, because my fingers can't possibly keep up with all my thoughts.
I'm just amazed at the journey and how much has happened since my last post.
Despite cutie pies worker thinking she'd need months of visits before having overnights and a couple months of overnights before moving in, cutie adapted well and the timeline:
October 15th--interviewed for cutie
October 25th--reviewed file, met with therapist and had 10 minutes to meet with cutie
November 5th--2 hour visit with cutie
November 10th--6 hour visit with cutie
November 14th--treatment team meeting followed by 6 hour visit with cutie
November 17th--National Adoption Day and first overnight visit (1 night at our home)
November 22nd-2 night overnight visit for our first Thanksgiving together
November 30th-2 night overnight visit, visited Santa and she requested to come home for Christmas
December 5th--treatment team meeting, Christmas party for the kids there and got to bring her home after the party for a 5 night overnight visit (took her to the racetrack for toys for tots Saturday and the Nutcracker Sunday)
December 10th--last pre placement visit
DECEMBER 13th--OUR BABY WILL BE MOVING HOME FOR GOOD!!!
So super excited. Just hung up the phone from talking to 'lil Miss Princess, who is as over the moon excited as we are. After so many visits, we've completely fallen head over hills in love with her and from the first visit, things have felt natural and "meant to be".
If you're on the waiting list, don't give up, just at that moment when you feel most ready to give up, a miracle may just be ready to happen.
