40 Days

Exactly 40 days after we brought Miles home, we will be welcoming Keenan home with open arms. Next week Thursday afternoon, our adoption journey will be complete and our journey as a family of seven will begin.

Miles is ecstatic. He is stockpiling toys for Keenan on Keenan's bed. Today at Target he picked out a carseat for Keenan. His smile lit up the entire store.

For 30 months, my arms have ached to hold this little boy. To think that hurt will be gone! To think that we won't have this process hanging over us. We are ready to move on and move forward.

Tomorrow we will be celebrating Paloma's 4th birthday here at camp. My baby girl is growing up! She is so terribly excited to become Miles' twin, as he is 4 as well.

Then we will head home, pack up the Mister's bags and on Monday we shall kiss him Bon Voyage as he brings our dear one home.

Where he belongs.
