Earlier in the day yesterday I tried to explain to a "customer service representative" why it was not ok for our international adoption papers to sit in one of their facilities for 5 days. I'm not really sure what I said then, but what I really wanted to say was this...
There is a precious baby boy waiting in a crib in a room with 4 walls with many, many, other cribs and babies. He is only touched when he is fed and changed. He does not cry because he is not used to being held. He lays in his crib and he waits day after day. He does not know that he is loved and chosen and precious to our family. Please understand that we cannot let him be there one minute longer than is absolutely necessary. We are counting the minutes until we can hold him and whisper in his little ear;
"you are ours and we love you."
There is so much more to this great big world than a crib in a room with 4 walls. We can't wait to share it with you!
