I miss the excitement of the beginning of the adoption wait.

I miss going to baby stores with my Mom.

I miss believing that at any second the phone could ring and we could find out our baby is waiting for us.

I miss doing research on the best things to buy for the baby. We have a complete nursery now. All that is left to get are cloth diapers and baby bottles. I am waiting until the last minute to get those in case they come out with new and improved versions by that time.

We were so full of hope and excitement in the beginning. It really felt like a pregnancy. I miss that feeling.


  1. You'll have that feeling again soon. I know it! Keep your head high, Lisa. :)

    Remember, just keep swimming! You said it yourself. :)

  2. *hugs* You will get that feeling back soon, I know it. And it will be followed very quickly by all those new mommy feelings!

  3. Thinking of you. I ditto Kaitlin!

  4. You're getting closer everyday!

    I found hope in buying baby books after I finished buying the basics. We ended up with a very nice library by the time Owen arrived!

  5. Waiting is the worst - and I can't even imagine how waiting for such a precious gift would feel. Keep your head up! I ditto Kaitlin too - and we are all here holding our breath right along with you! xx
