Our Journey to Meili

Today marks 31 months since we were LID. Slowly but surely, we are getting there. We often hear that after referral, the wait seems like a distant memory. I honestly can't imagine that being the case , but I figured why not document the process just to be safe. I can't wait to watch this with Meili one day when she is old enough to understand, not because I want her to feel like she owes us anything, but because I want her to know that she was wanted and loved for a very long time before she joined our family. So, here it is. A huge thank you to those of you who sent pictures and especially to those friends and family who have been so supportive along the way!

I'm also tearing up. It's like going down memory lane....I've been reading your blog since the start and I remember so many of those pictures. We sure have been waiting a long time. I agree with Lisa....It's time.

You are soooo creative. What a nice video to show her later. Can't wait to meet your Meili! The wait doesn't just melt away, it just makes finally having her soo much sweeter.
