I am heading out Thursday night to go to Atlanta to sign my adoption contract. This is scary for me. I am excited to sign the contract but it also is the start of it all. I am going to have to check what is acceptable to me in a child and their family and what is not. THIS IS HUGE! or at least it is to me. What do I say yes to? What do I say no to? These are big, forever decisions that scare me. I hope I make the right decisions. The only thing I know is to go with my instincts. I know that God will help me make the right decisions. I can't imagine Him giving me more than I can handle.
While that is scary, it is still exciting. I am going to get to work on the birth mother letter and make myself as lovable as possible. :) I look forward to writing the letter to the woman who will soon be handing over their child for me to love and raise. Wow! What do you say to that person? What words can express the gratitude I feel for this act of ultimate generosity?
