Meidyn's Journey Home

This is the journey, from beginning to end, of how we got our daughter home. We have not met her, she may not even be born... but she's already found a way into our hearts.

Cloth diapers

I finally finished some of my cloth diapers!! I'm not the best sewer but I'm getting better with every diaper. The top three are water proof and have velcro closures these are also referred to as all-in-ones(aio's) in the cloth diaper world. The bottom two are fitted, I will need to use some type of cover to make them water proof. Also I picked up a diaper bag\Purse today!!

November 13th

As most of you know, we did not make it through court and it was rescheduled for November 13th. We were shocked to hear our new court date was a full month out but are trying to make the best of it. We are praying we can get her home by Christmas. We received our referral on July 7th and time is crawling. I have read several other blogs where there have been several delays in court but all eventually worked out. I just don't know how many months I can look at the same pictures. I've also noticed that many other families receive many more update and pictures than our agency offers. It would seem that would be an easy thing to get and might recommend it to them when this is all done. One couple actually gets periodic updates of milestones and personality traits of their waiting child. How wonderful it would be to know how she is developing all these months. I think we received one set of updated pics about 3 weeks after referral and nothing since. 3 months have passed, I have no idea what she looks like, how big she is, if she has hair, does she smile, sit, crawl, what does she eat? Is she growing? My questions go on and on and it's probable that I will continue to have all these concerns until December. Please pray for our patience and strength to get through this next month.

Baby shower!

What a wonderful day!! My most favorite closest family and friends gave me a baby shower! We got more than we could ever need and are so grateful for their love and generosity. Please excuse the dress, I loved it in the store but in pictures I think it makes me look pregnant LOL. I guess it's fitting.... enjoy the pictures

Soon she will be ours...

In less than a week we will hopefully hear that our sweet girl will have passed court. Every day we get closer and closer and our list gets longer and longer. Thank you everyone for your support through this wait. We can't wait to be able to share her picture with the world!! I'm praying that we hear next week that she is officially ours!
