I sat in Starbucks this morning with my mind going a millions miles a minute. "I can't believe we're doing this...I can't believe this is my life...I've dreamed of doing this since I was young but I can't believe I'm here right now." We met with our case worker for the first time today. While it sounds boring, because all we did was talk paperwork, I just can't stop smiling. This is real. We are really doing this. We're on our way to adopting a child!
Again, all we did today was get to know our case worker a bit and go over the thick stack of paper work we have to start. However, it's one step closer we are to becoming parents. I thought I may walk away feeling overwhelmed by everything we have to do...but I'm not. I'm ready. If you know me well, you know I'm a go-getter anyway. We have waited long enough and the time is here. So, let's get our paperwork started!
To Baby Shewcraft,
We're working for you. You just wait! You already have some pretty amazing people who are praying for you and giving generously so you can come home to us. You will be surrounded by LOVE, not only by Brett and I, but by your family and friends near and far. We pray for you everyday. I (your mommy) will try really, really hard to be patient as we wait for you...but you better believe we're gonna be thinking about you and filling out the paperwork as quickly as we can. I'm not sure what you look like or where you will come from, but I know that God has an amazing plan for you. For us. It may be a while from now until we meet, but we are anxiously awaiting the day. For now, we're praising God for you and for the life He will bless us with.
Daddy & Mommy
