6 weeks......

Monday, February 13, 2012
My Sweet Isaiah,

It has been six weeks since Mommy held you in my arms. I miss you so much it hurts. I never realized how hard it was going to be to just sit and wait for the phone to ring to tell me I can come back to get you and bring you home forever! While I feel so blessed to have had that special time with you during my first trip to Ethiopia, you have a Big Brother at home who just can not wait to meet you, to hold you and play with you. Noah loves to talk about you and tell me all about the things he is going to teach you.

Thanks to sweet friends Mommy has gotten some really cute updated pictures of you since I left and even a little video!! You are getting so big and it makes me so sad to think of what milestones I am missing. I wonder if you are crawling? When we were together you were rolling from your back to your side and you were really good at holding yourself up with your hands and looking around. I know it sounds silly, but Mommy hopes you are not crawling yet. I would love to be able to see you do that for the first time. You were drooling a lot when we were together, which makes me wonder if you have any teeth? Your gums looked like they were getting ready, so it won't surprise me if the next time I see you your smile includes a tooth or two :) Your hair is getting longer and your curls are popping up everywhere!

I wake up every morning and see your picture sitting on my nightstand. I pray daily that the Lord continues to watch over you and keep you safe and that things will move quickly and you will be back in Mommy's arms very soon!! Noah really wants you home for his birthday, so that is what he prays for! If I could travel back tonight and stay with you until we pass embassy I would do it in a heart beat! Leaving you was one of the hardest things I have ever done. You were attaching to me so well when we were together and I pray that you remember me when you see me again.

Isaiah, Mommy loves you so much and I can not wait to have you home. Sleeping in your crib next to your big brother, watching your sweet personality grow as well as your relationship with Noah. I know you both are going to be the best of friends. God truly hand picked you to join our family.

  1. This is a crazy coinscidence but I stumbled upon your blog and instantly reconized Isaiah. We were there three weeks ago and our son is in the same room. I held him a couple of times because he was wanting to be held so bad. I pray you get to go back soon!
