Somebody Pinch Me!



Will somebody pinch me please!!! I just cannot believe that in just 1 week, our precious little one will be in our arms. It still just doesnt feel real. The bags are almost completely packed now, we have our tickets, but I still just cannot believe it. And no matter how much I have studied and read everyone elses blogs as they journeyed to Ehtiopia to bring their little ones home, I still have to say I dont know what to expect. When she is placed in my arms....what will it be like? When she sleeps on my shoulder...what will it be like? Her country....what will it be like? Her personality....her teething....her sleeping habits.....what will any of it be like? All I know is has got to heavenly to have her in my arms....feel her breathing, watching her sleep. I know the rest will all fall into place. Brad always likes to make bets with people. Yesterday he asked me heads or tails? I said for what? He said to see who will hold Annsleigh first. I said I didnt want to pick! But I did...I lost...but I told him it will just have to be both of us...I'll hold her bottom....and he'll hold her top!

Wowzer...1 week! This is so exciting! Will you be able to blog in ET? I certainly hope so because I want to see pics of you holding that precious baby girl!

One week! Hopefully the time doesn't start slowing down for you. And, I think what you'll feel when she's placed in your arms is a sort of numbness. But, not numbness due to lack of care-numbness caused by caring too much. It's overwhelming, to say the least. I cannot wait to hear your Ethiopia story.

So excited for you guys!!!! YAY!!!! Finally, Annsleigh will be in your arms and home before you know it. There is no way you can totally prepare for Ethiopia and getting to know Annsleigh. Even though there are a lot of similar experiences, it is totally different for each person all at the same time. Give that beautiful baby lots of hugs and kisses from me. I can't wait to see pics of her in your arms!!!!
