It was two months ago today that we walked into SLC with nervous anticipation. The year-long wait had been reduced to just moments. And there she was -- the daughter we had only dreamed about. Sometimes I wonder how they were able to contain Miss Lucy in such a small space. She gets more and more energetic and ambitious with each passing day.
Many parents take the traditional holding-the-referral-photo shot on the anniversary of the referral. But considering our one year referral-versary (9/21) was eleven days after we returned home from Taiwan, we were still in a sleep-deprived fog. And the pain of waiting was still so fresh in our hearts that recognizing we had just waited an entire year was just too much.
