Celebrating 31 Months Closer to Hannah!

Yay! Today I'm celebrating my file being in China for 31 months which brings me another month closer to Hannah! Wheee!!!

It has been an absolutely crazy busy month and has flown by. Work is busy, home life is busy and to top it off I'm in the middle of a small home reno which I've looked forward to having done for years and is finally happening. I teach piano in the evenings and currently my piano is in the family room upstairs which is really just an open concept room with the kitchen, eating area and family room all together. It was going to make things challenging for the babysitter when I was teaching and Hannah was hungry so moving the piano to the basement will be really helpful. (I'll do a post on the teaching studio renos when they're all done.) It's really exciting to be doing something so tangible in preparing for Hannah to come home!! Just moving the box with her crib in it from one side of the basement to the other made my heart beat faster last week. I like to think it was because of the excitement that the box actually contained the crib my baby girl will sleep in but I think a good part of it was also that the side of the box said 'Weight 97lbs' :o)

31 months closer and celebrating! Praying daily for my baby girl who I believe is now living on the other side of the world. May she know love, comfort and so much more as we wait for God to bring us together. Mommy loves you baby girl!

PS: It's now 9:15am and I just returned from a doctor's appt. Can I tell you it gave me goosebumps to book next year's follow-up appt. taking nap time into consideration as I'll be off on maternity leave with my baby girl?!! Wheee!!!

  1. Keep praying! The husband and I are convinced that prayer helped to protect the Tongginator, but also that it helped to prepare our hearts.

  7. Happy 31!

    I'm starting to get excited again about this adoption with all the upcoming referrals. At least next year will be a little easier to wait when I have all of your (Pipo, Sea Star, Pug Mama, Lisa, you, Doris, Stacy, etc) referrals, travels and first months at home to live vicariously through. :)
