In Total Amazment
Well, I watched the open ceremonies for the Olympics last night. What an amazing show. I could not believe the beauty of it all. I became incredibly sad and started crying . My emotions overwhelmed me as I thought about the time. When we were just starting out in this adoption journey we had the hopes of bringing our sweet cheeks baby cake home around this time of year. We talked about if we would be going before or after the games.
I was thinking about all of the parents that were in the same boat as we are, those that have pulled out, those waiting now 29 months, those that have decided not to pursue adoption at all and those that have pursued adopting from a different country or domestically. My heart was literally breaking and I had to turn off the TV. Now for me that is just not done for the Olympics. I am one that will watch everything that I can on it. I cheer for the USA, for the hosting country, and I cheer for the little countries.
