Today I went to the travel clinic and had 7 shots. My arms are sore!!!! What we do for our children. I am ready now to head for Ethiopia. If I had to leave tomorrow, I think I could. My house is not ready. My job is not ready. My heart is more than ready (okay if I'm really honest its still a little overwhelmed by it all). But I can't wait to have him in my arms.
Sunday is Mother's day. And it has a whole new meaning to me. Last year's mother's day was hard for me. I just wasn't anywhere near where I thought I wanted to be in my life. But this year even though he's on the other side of the world, I'm still feeling excited and happy about mother's day.
But when I think of his birth mom. I'm pretty sure they don't have mother's day in Ethiopia, but I think about her, what she must feel everyday. And my heart hurts for her.
