My First Mother's Day...sort of

So I'm in this weird in between place of being a mom but not really being a mom yet. There's a baby on this earth that has been chosen for me. But she's still halfway across the world from me. I know her face. I know every single detail of her face. But I haven't really seen it yet. I know who she is. But I have no idea who she really is. Right now I'm in love with a photo of a beautiful little baby girl named Tong Min Ying who lives in China. But soon...on May 25th to be exact ... I'll fall in love when they place a beautiful little baby girl named Mia Renee Ying in my arms. I'll finally be a mother. And she will be my daughter. Completely and forever.

Abby was placed in my arms on May 26th 2008 in Nanchang.

You are a Mom. That happened on referral day in my book. Hope your day was full of day dreams that filled your face with smiles. Soon you will be holding her and caring for her.

I hope that you're able to share the info. about your return flight. I promise not to be intrusive or a bother, but if it's possible to just be a fly on the wall, I would sure love to witness your homecoming. When I left for China we said, "No visitors at the airport." We were concerned about overwhelming her. Once we met her and got to know her we felt confident that having friends greet us would be ok for her.

See what you need and then make it known. I had to let you know my heart's desire though. :)

Blessings, Krista. It's been far, far to long!

You are a mom, you just haven't met Mia yet. You became her mom the day the CC@@ matched you with her. Very soon that sweet little girl will be placed in your arms and I can't wait to see the video of that moment (so long as you share it).

Happy Mother's Day, albeit a little late.

I've been following your blog for the last 3 years and it makes me so happy that you finally have a visual on your Mia. She is beautiful.
