19 month LIDversary...

Well, today marks another monthly anniversary. It's so hard to believe we've been waiting for 19 months now! That's 577 days in anticipation of our daughter.

Some days have been up and some have been down, but not one single day has passed that we haven't thought about Lauren. I wonder what she will look like, what kind of personality she will have, how old she will be when we get her, who her birth mother is and what her situation is. I also wonder what it will be like to be a mother and if I'll be a good one. I wonder how we'll get through the first few months and how she will do when I go back to work.

There are also tons of other things I've thought about during this wait, but these are the things that I think (and worry) about the most.

Well, first of all - having made it this far along side you, I can "testify" that this has been one of the most difficult trials of the heart. I also share a lot of your fears but I know we will do great - how can we not? We've had YEARS to prepare!

the things you think about and worry about will all sort themselves out. never doubt that you will be a great mother and joe will be a great dad. the worries you have are the same worries all parents have and work thru them. i have the greatest faith in you and i should know, i had the same fears before i had you...and you turned out to be pretty great!!! love mom
