Monday July 7, 2008

We received a gift for the baby over the weekend from my aunt I thought I would share with everyone. It is a framed poem, really cute, for the baby's room. I loved the poem and so far had not seen anything like this. The poem is as follows:

The Chosen Heart

Longing for a child to love,
I'd wish upon the stars above.
In my hear I always knew,
A part of me was meant for you.

I think how happy we will be,
Once I adopt you and you adopt me.

I dream of all the joy you'll bring,
Imagining even the littlest things.
The way it will feel to hold you tight,
And tuck you in every night.

The drawings on the refrigerator door,
And childhood toys across the floor.
The favorite stories read again and again,
And hours of games with make-believe friends.

The day you took my outstretched hand,
A journey ended, but our lives began.
Still mesmerized by your sweet face,
Still warmed inside by our first embrace.

I promised to give you a happy home,
And a loving family all your own.
A house you've now made complete,
With laughter, smiles and tiny feet.

A parent is one who guides the way,
Know I will be there everyday.
Rest easy as each night you sleep,
A lifetime of love is yours to keep.

Longing for a child to love,
I'd wish upon the stars above.
In my heart I always knew,
A part of me belonged to you.

I love this poem and it will hang on the wall in the baby's room, just another reminder of how special he is and how loved he will be.

We have submitted all the paperwork for the homestudy, now we have to wait for it to come back to review. The next step will be to submit the completed home study to USCIS (immigration) and wait for that approval to come back then we can submit the completed dossier for review and then it is off to Ethiopia and we wait. Keep checking back i will keep updating as we get news.
