Our baby girl is coming home sooner than later and we couldn't be more excited.
It was also an exciting day because I finally relaxed a little and went shopping for our sweet girl.
Gotcha day is approaching super fast yet I hadn't allowed myself to buy one thing. My sweet friend Debra (who is expecting twin girls in July) invited me to a consignment sale and if you know me, you know I love a good deal. Although free is my favorite deal, right Kish?
Anyway, I was just going to go and support Deb and look around with her but once I got in there I was overcome with all the cuteness. All the pink everywhere, all the good deals and I thought OK, so I don't know her exact size but I've got a general idea... and that was it, I was gone. I didn't go nuts by any means but there were a few items I couldn't resist and when I stumbled on a toddler bed for only $40 and a carseat for only $20 (both in excellent shape) I thought God must have His hand in this.
Once home I took all the tags off and hung them up in her closet. It made me smile the biggest smile to see dresses and other girly clothes hanging in there. I never ever thought before adoption grabbed my heart I would have a girl. I figured the closest I would come would be daughters-in-law and grandkids yet here I am. My own deep desire coming to fruition. God is a God of miracles. I can't wait to bring her home and love her to pieces and connect in a way that is unique with a mother-daughter. I had it with my mom and that is the only cloud that hangs over this, my mom isn't here to enjoy all this with me. Thankfully, HE is a father to the fatherless and God has provided surrogates along the way and for that I couldn't be more thankful. Here's to shopping for a girl...
