Today, my daughter, you turn 15 month old. I am beyond excited to know that this is the very last time that you will do that alone. Next month, your sweet 16 month, you will be with me. At home. Forever.
I have been waiting so long for this day. We have tickets to come get you. They are booked and bought. It is real now. The final itinerary it set. The last travel meeting completed.
We have been working for this moment for 18 months, thinking and praying about it for over 2 years. Hours and hours of paperwork, reading, writing, scrolling, absorbing information...so much information. The reality of being so close to seeing you in person is a bit surreal.
We've seen pictures of where you sleep. The pale pink walls, lined up with cribs. We've looked at the outside building, with it's 3 stories and barred windows. The tile floors and the play room with the boppy pillows stacked high.
We are so glad that you had that place to keep you safe and keep you warm. But, we are ready for you to be at our home, with our family. Your family.
Your bed is ready, with a very excited big sister waiting to share the room with. The bags are slowly being packed. The car seat installed. Everything is moving forward to becoming a family of six.
And now, my Little One, we are coming. For you.
See you in a week sweet girl.
Be brave, little one.
Momma and Daddy are on their way.
Love you always,
