Wow, it's hard to believe that 6 months has gone by since we were logged in!

When we first decided to adopt the wait was 9-12 months; which seemed "do-able" at the time. Little did we know the wait would grow and grow and grow. I thought once we hit the 6 month mark we would be half way to Mia; however that does not hold true at this point. There are so many dossiers ahead of us and I'm sure many, many behind us!

It still amazes me that I can think about Mia every single day that goes by and I don't even know her... but I "feel" her and long to be her mommy so much I can almost "touch" her... she is in my heart already ~ amazing! It's hard to explain and probably hard to understand, but "it's" there.

Here's a big question: how many more 6 month "LID-aversaries" will go by before I see my Mia's face? Please, please speed up! Please

Congrats! We are right behind you and I feel the same way - I thought by 6 months we'd be so close - I'm still the optimist thinking there will be some sort of speed up. I too think of my Mimi every day and talk about her as if she is here - It is hard to explain to some people but those going through this journey really do understand! Glad to share this ride with ya! I love your 6 - I did shells at 3 months - Joseph is deciding on our 6 month pic - hmmm, last he mentioned Star Wars light sabers - I don't know about that - we'll see...

When i read this it brought tears to my eyes...the wait is the hardest part for sure. I hope the months go by quickly and smoothly! Congrats on getting past the first 6!

As I read this in June, catching up on your blog/my email and all sort of other stuff...I realize you are already two more months closer to Mia! You've come so far. She will come when the time is right, and it will be perfect, just as it was meant to be.
Love ya,
