“For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.”
Song of Solomon 2:11-12
The snow has started falling today and lasted long enough for Jamie to go out and shovel. This is the first time in my life that I say “Bring on the snow!”, “Bring on the winter!” because it just brings us one season closer to our little one. Yup–that’s right–she is ours and we are hers!
The internal winter of waiting and uncertainty is over…and “The spring has sprung. The grass is rizz” (Whinnie the Pooh) on our giddy & expectant hearts.
While it blusters and blows outside our windows, we are sitting by the fireplace wiggling our warm toes — just knowing we are actually and for realsies “parents!”
Now that we have the judgement, the adoption is legal, but not finalized until we receive the Act of Adoption. So we sit tight in our snow globe for another 3 or 4 months until it is time to go hither and thither and yon…
Cheers to all the new adoptive parents!
