I added a Countdown Calendar to my blog and it just did not seem to add up. I think we have 13 days, but the calendar was already on 12. So, I changed it up a little but the time still isn't quite right. Actually, I do not think it matters , I just enjoy watching the time tick down!
This will be a very special meeting. Getting to know Wendy and her family is a dream come true. I never, in a million years, thought this would happen to me and I only wish that my family could join me.
I hoped the three Colorado Girls would come on this very important trip but the timing was not right. And, as we know, timing is everything. The girls had hoped I would wait until October but I felt I did not want to wait another minute because to me this will be a full circle event. I am so grateful that Amber will be joining me.
I gave birth to Wendy and gave her up for adoption on September 7, 1968. I will meet her and her family on September 4, 2010. There has been a life time of birthdays and holidays I was unable to share with her. I did not get to see her walk her first steps or hear her babble her first words. I missed her first days of school and her graduation. I did not get to hear her tales of fun weekends or hear her feelings about the Man she would marry. I was not at her wedding or there for the births of her children. I have so much to learn about all of these times.
I hope my Girls can understand my need to go in September. I would love Tiffany and Erin to be there but I know it is not possible. I so enjoy being a mother to them and their brothers and we have so many great memories. I was there for all the milestones in their lives and I was there to pick them up when they fell. Always remember, I am still here and I love all of you more than I can express. You are all a gift from God and I am thrilled, and blessed, to be adding Wendy and her family to our family.
