My sweet girl. You have waited for 5 years for a mommy and daddy. When we committed to be your family last May, I never dreamed that we wouldn't spend your birthday loving on you. I thought for sure that you would be home and we would have a grand celebration, in your honor.
I never imagined that we wouldn't yet even be approved and have our referral. I cannot believe it.
I am so sorry.
I wish I could have completed paperwork faster. I wish that our dossier would have been completely perfect, so that we would not have needed an addendum.
I do know though, that God has PERFECT timing. It's not my pretty picture that I have in my mind, but a much more beautiful plan.
Today I will think of you often, sweet Rose. Mommy loves you and I cannot wait to see you.
