What a sweet word it is!
And now our little Miss E is home to stay-
that's right! Today we drove up and brought
her home for good. The adoption isn't finalized
yet, but she no longer needs to go back to her
foster home. We are so glad!!!
On October 9 of last year our social worker first
told us about Miss E, and now, almost exactly one
year later, she is home. I never would have guessed
that it would take so long, and I wish there was something
that could be done so others don't have to wait so long
either, but I'm not sure what that would be.
But all that is behind us now and we are ready
to settle in and just live life together!
Earlier in the week Miss E "helped" me plant 90
daffodils and grape hyacinths in the secret garden.
It's always a lot of work to plant bulbs, and you don't
see the fruits of your labor for a long time, but
it's worth it in the spring!
Maybe the longer the wait, the sweeter the reward-
both in daffodils and adopting? (:
