Archived Post 2012 - Expecting

In case you hadn't heard, we are expecting, again.
Isn't that exciting.
I am thrilled, excited does not even begin to cover how I am feeling.
It will be soon.
Tomorrow in fact.
We meet Kate tomorrow.
She will be 6 next Thursday.
I am looking forward to this with an equal share of excitement, concern and anticipation.
I am excited to have a daughter.
I am concerned about how very hard this is going to be.
I am anticipating the challenges in a way that only a parent who has already experienced older child adoption can.
She only just heard about us yesterday, she was excited to have brothers.
Her brothers are mostly excited to have a sister.
This journey, the one we are stepping into with arms open wide is going to be a challenging one.
I am expecting there to be lots of bumps and turns along the way.
Yet I look forward to it in a way that I never knew I could because I love my children and I am so looking forward to loving another as much as I love the two I already have.
