Little Things for Our Littlest Girl
There may have been a small paperwork miracle, one which involved me staying up until 2:30am, practically holding hands with my printer, and then found all three of us in the UPS Store having thirty-two official signatures notarized. There may also have been a tiny bit of shopping done this week. We're doing our best to keep a tight rein on spending in light of fees being due and travel coming up, but we wanted to lay aside some special things for her. I think this little stack is just about right.
Most clothing in stores won't work for our sweet girl, so we'll be sending the shirts off to my friend Nicole to be modified to suit our needs. I've been feeling so well loved with so many people getting excited about our baby and offering to help with all the little things that must be done. When I feel sad, I think of how much love there is for this baby, and it makes me feel better. I feel so emotionally raw right now with her so far away, and with so much to do to get her home, but I also know that we will figure out how to get everything together, and we are not doing it alone.
That's what I'm going to remind myself of every day. We are not doing this alone.
Thank you, all of you, for being part of our family story.
