I read a wonderful and uplifting success in progress story on Glenna's blog earlier today. Her post was so well written, I could almost feel her joy bursting through my computer! I am so thrilled for them and how quickly their adoption process is moving along. Just knowing there are others out there whose dreams of parenthood are coming true makes me feel happy inside.

This has made me think...we really are going to be parents someday, and hopefully someday sooner rather than later! We'll be getting into "the pool" probably within the next month or so. In my head I am preparing myself for the possibility of having to wait years for a match with our birth family. What if we don't have to wait years though? That is a thrilling and terrifying thought all at once! I've been longing to be "mommy" for so very long now, and yet, somehow, I still can't quite imagine that actually happening. I know that when/how this story--our story unfolds is anybody's guess. Even so, I have faith that what should happen will happen, and at the exact time that's right for us too. I don't know... I guess it's just that all the blogs I've been reading lately have given me a lot of food for thought. It's just interesting to me how all our stories are similar but different. I wonder what it will be like for me to look back at all this five or ten years from now?
