One Year Waiting....

Since I've been waiting all my life for you, one year really isn't that long, I guess. So I'll go on waiting for you, Mia. No matter how long it takes. I promise. Because I know that someday the wait will end and I'll hold you in my arms......
And on that day my dream will come true.

It's so worth the wait. I'll be here with you. I'll be the one cheering!!! I promise to stalk you in China and meet you and Mia at the airport!!! It will happen. I promise!

Rhonda said...

It *will* happen, it has to...because you have to lead the way for all the rest of us to follow. :)

I know it doesn't seem like it, but happy 1 year LIDiversary.

Congratulations on 1 year Krista!

Melissa said...

One year, wow!!!
Welcome to the over a year club!!!

Noemi said...

CONGRATS!!! On your 1 year LID.

It's Ok to see the glass half empty sometimes.

You are a strong woman and you will someday with Mia in you arms look back to these days and understand that you had to get in line for this rollercoster to get to her.

And that my friend is what counts. It's not, how, when or where. What count's is that she will be in your arms from that moment on FOREVER!

1 year.. hard to believe isn't it. In just a few more days, I'll be right there with you. At least you still have the heart to blog. Me.. not so much... the more I dweal on it, the longer each month seems to take. I know we'll get there though and like Sam...if I'm not in china with you.. I'll be following your journey and will be there to welcome you and Mia home at the airport.!!
Happy 1 year Krista... we will get there!!

Congratulations on this milestone! I am hoping along with everyone else that this wait will speed up soon. It's brutal, I know. But absolutely worth it.

Hang in there, you are DEFINETLY worth it too!

Congrats on hitting the 1 yr mark. I'm sure it's not easy. I've already said we're at the 6 month mark and it feels like forever.

She will be everything and more when you finally see her for the first time!

Julie said...

Hang in there girlie!

The one year anniversary is bittersweet. I raise a glass to you today, Krista - to keep going, b/c you help keep me going. I'm so happy that we are in this long line together - you've been a friend & will be a Mom, too.

I'm hoping that we are in the "downhill slide" of this wait. The 12 month tipping point.

Congrats on one year sister! I'm soooo happy that I've met you on this journey and I'll be along for the ride no matter how long the rest of it takes! Hey, you could always give me your login and password and I can surprise you one of these days with some pink poodles! (hey, at least they're pink!)

Ugh. I know the current wait right now is awful. What's your agency saying? I conduct workshops for my agency and the big question is always "how long". Very disheartening to some when they hear. I know for me (a year ago) that waiting the 10 months from referral seemed like a lifetime. Of course it would be two more months before we had our little girls in our arms. The only thing I can lend here is the wait is so worth it.....be strong.

Mia is going to be one lucky girl to be able to call you her mama.
Those are some really sweet words. I'm all teary.

Happy 12 months closer to Mia!! Mali & I are also along for the ride . . . and we'll certainly be here to see you cross the finish line!

P.S. - I wouldn't recommend giving your password to the Headmeister =)

Happy 12 months.
Waiting with ya,,,,

Mark & Michelle said...

One year closer! Congrats to you!!

Kelli said...

Congratulations Krista! You made it through the first year! Celebrate! I know (Oh how I know!!!) how we didn't expect this wait, how it's hard to enjoy much of it, but every month is a milestone, and 1 year is a GREAT milestone! So CELEBRATE! For my 1 yr Lidversary I put the crib together. not sure what I'll do on the 2 yr...(ugh....!) The good part is, even if we're not MUCH closer, we are further from the beginning, and *that* is forward progress. Even if it's only in baby steps.

Daniella said...

Happy one year - Your one step closer to your beautiful daughter!!! Hang in there -

amy said...

WE just started but I cant wait to have 1 year behind us..Praying for everyone who is waiting...

kris said...

Wow, here's to ONE year Krista! That's incredible!

Colleen said...

One year is a long time down. Congrats on that. Oh this wonderful adoption roller coaster. It only makes the end result all that much sweeter. I couldn't say it or even agree with it until I saw Hannah's face. And then....the wait melted away.

You already know she will be worth it. Keep on with your smile and we will all be here for you along the way.
