We had a fun night last night.  The girls and I went with G-ma and Kayleigh to walk around the mall.  It’s been a LONG time since I’ve stepped foot inside a mall with girls in tote.  They were wonderful and the best thing is that we walked out with nothing and everyone was happy.   But the whole evening I kept thinking to myself…. someone is missing… I was often thinking about Frankie.  I think about him all the time but some days more than others.  Last night just was one of those nights.  We’ll have a fun family night and there is a space in our lives where it’s just not complete.

I follow A LOT of adoption blogs.  I have found such wonderful blog community with other families who are in an adoption proceess through Haiti and are as like we are, in the waiting…  I thought it was interesting as I looked at the titles of their latest posts this morning….. It’s just good to know that we are not alone.  That we are all in this together.

Needless to say I find much comfort and rest in the story’s of others journey’s.  It really brings out a range of emotions for people.  I’m waiting for an update this week on where our files are at and what is currenlty happening.  No news is always good news.  In three months it will be May and May is the month that ignited this adoption process for us.  I really can’t believe it’s coming up on a year of the beginning of this journey in our lives.

I miss you dearly Frankie….  Wish I could be in the same room with you right now and tell you for the millionth time that Mamma loves you.  And in our waiting to do life together I pray for you that your days would be filled with so much happiness and love and that our hearts would be given daily peace as we wait for the unknown process that we walk day to day.
