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. I know in my heart that we are Sophie’s true family, the ones meant for her since the beginning, but she doesn’t know this. 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! Thanks for following along on the journey and feel free to leave a comment.
