Today I am struggling. I haven't even met "J" and "S" yet, but I miss them terribly. I don't know how to explain how that's possible, but believe me, it is excruciating. I desperately want to see my boys...hug them...kiss them...play with them...tell them stories...eat with them...rock them when they are tired...read to them...watch them sleep...and everything else that goes with being a parent. I find myself wondering what they are doing right now? Are they sleeping? Eating? Playing? I found out today that our little "J" has a friend and they like to talk to each other in their native language as they are from the same area in Ethiopia. I can't tell you how much that warmed this mommy's heart. While all of us hope that our children have friends in the transition home that they play with, actually knowing that they do is wonderful to hear. The family who is adopting "J"'s little friend is from Idaho so when we both get our kids, we may have to take a trip out that way sometime.
For now, I will keep waiting for that phone call that will tell us when our court date is. Next week Paige Alleca will be seeing our boys and loving on them, taking pictures, and playing with them so I'll have to hold out for that. I LOVE YOU MY SWEET BOYS!
