On Cloud 9

I'm floating in the clouds right now...

My eyes are welling over with tears right now.  My newest niece, Maleah, is in her parent's arms at last!  (I could show you the picture I just saw...via FB, but I'm going to let her parents show her off first.  But don't worry, they will be coming!)   =)  My brother Clint and my sister (in law) Laura are in Ethiopia RIGHT NOW loving on their fourth child, and first daughter.  I can't even imagine the emotions that are swirling through them right now.  But I'll know eventually!!! 

She is absolutely beautiful!  And it seems that with every day and every photo I see she continues to get more beautiful.  I'm in love already. 

I'm anxious for them to get home.  I'm anxious to see their family of SIX all together.  I'm anxious to plant a kiss on her little cheek.  I'm anxious to take a picture of her.  But I'm even more anxious for my baby to come home..

I have a feeling these next couple months are going to feel like they drag on now that I don't have the distraction of my family's adoption process.  But I get to live vicariously through them until then.  And our journey has never felt so REAL!  Watching my brother and sister in their journey has made the reality of our adoption just click with me.  We WILL be getting our daughter!  We WILL be seeing her face!  We WILL be going to Ethiopia!  And we WILL have a family of four! 

I can't wait for the post that says, "They are home at last!!!"  Lots of pictures included, of course! =)

P.S.  If you are wondering why my posts have been lacking...well, let's just say our desktop computer crashed.  And then I left my laptop charger at my mom's and had to wait for her to mail it to me.  Talk about computer issues, right?!?
