I’m all packed and as ready as I’ll ever be! I must admit, my stomach is in knots. Nervous knots and excited knots. I know what to expect as far as the adoption trip goes, but I have no idea what to expect as far as adopting a toddler. I have mixed emotions about gotcha day. I have been looking forward to this day for SO long, the day I could finally hold my sweet Sophie and tell her how much I have been anticipating being her momma at long last. But this day will be a sad and frightening day for her. She will be taken from the only home she’s ever known and the only momma she’s ever known and thrust into the arms of a stranger.
Please pray for us, for her especially, that she would feel safe and loved by me. That I would have the patience and endurance to be able to comfort her. I am hopeful that by the time we reach Guangzhou that she will be more comfortable with me … I guess we’ll find out soon enough!
