Meet my beautiful little girl, baby K. I am beyond words with the emotions that I am feeling right now. All I know is I am totally in love with her. She is currently being taken care of at a foster home in Makati thru the CRIBS Foundation. She is 17 1/2 months old, happy, healthy, and just adorable. The moment I saw her, she had my heart. I've always wondered how this moment would be, when I see my daughter for the first time. I am amazed at how much I loved her the moment that I saw her. Never did I imagine how powerful a mother's love truly is until now. There isn't a moment now that I don't think of her. I think about holding her in my arms, rocking her to sleep, and just kiss those scrumptious cheeks! In essence, I just really want to be her mommy. I am so blessed that God has given me the chance to mother this sweet little girl. Ironically, I began this blog as a way to vent when I was frustrated with "the wait" for a match. It is a true blessing that today, I'm writing that I know why that wait was necessary. God was preparing her birth family's heart to make a difficult decision to let her go and He was also preparing our hearts to accept such a wonderful treasure. So, those of you who are still waiting for a match, on the hot trail of paper chasing, waiting to be invited to travel, or waiting to return home with you precious little treasures: I am praying for all of us to remember that God's timing is perfect. Despite the frustrations, set-backs, and disappointments along the way, know that God's hand is upon all of us. He has a perfect plan, so don't lose hope...He has amazing wonderful promises for all of those who remain faithful in Him. Goodnight blogging moms...and blessings to you little one.
