Tonight, it is started to sink in that we are REALLY FINALLY going to be bringing HOME to our country, our state, our city, our neighborhood, our family, our church.....our son!!! He is going to be running through our house, sitting at our table, reading our books, sleeping in his bed, using our bathroom (hee hee....a BOY!!!!), falling asleep in my arms, playing in our yard, sitting in "our row" at church, throwing balls, playing with our cat, meeting his aunts/uncles/ grandparents, SISTERS/BROTHER-in-law/cousins/great aunts & uncles/great grandma, meeting new friends, eating our popcorn, wearing his fleecy pj's, roasting marshmallows for S'mores, sitting on squishy couches, watching his relationship with Sophina grow as they age, watching his sisters with him...watching them all fall in love with each other, seeing him at our church service....singing with all of our hearts, hearing Pastor Matthew Molesky's sermon being preached with such passion, meeting Twila Pulford-whom i KNOW will weep with joy, meeting oh my....so MANY MANY MANY of you come to mind!!!! Seeing our first family picture, my first Mother's Day as a mother of a son for the very first time, his first family reunion-THIS summer, his first Christmas/Thanksgiving/4th of July, his first time seeing Lake Superior up in Grand Marais, his first trip to the different Grandparents houses, his dedication service at our church, his first time realizing that he is my son/our son/a brother, his first time in our home, his first time in a bathtub, his first time playing a game with us, his first EVERYTHING!!!! I just am overwhelmed and so blessed! Oh and all of those "ours" will be "his" and THAT i can't wait for!!!!
ALWAYS BLESSED, Connie for the crew
