It’s Thursday…this week isn’t even over and I have been specially blessed TWICE! Some weeks are normal, boring even…some weeks I see and feel heartache and sadness, but this week – this week is great!
First, my cousin Matt and his lovely fiance safely had their second little boy delivered by C-Section at 9 pds and 15 ounces! I know – a big boy! James Gordon and I met on Tuesday and snuggled for well over an hour. His newness and sweetness radiating off of him and of course putting him down left an aching that I never fully recover from. I know that having a newborn is not a part of my journey – but sometimes, when I let me weaknesses role in, sometimes it still bites.
Second – and this is MY good news – I am ADOPT READY in Ontario, meaning my ministry has put the stamp on my home study and once my dossier is complete I can submit my final documents to my adoption agency for translation. My first meeting with my practitioner was all the way back in January and now – 10 months later, I am adopt ready! I know I still have a year or more of waiting for referral, but this crucial step is complete. I can breathe a sigh of relief. My government is not standing in the way between my child having a mother.
Thank you God.
