A Visit

The girls' transition to their new family went very well. I think it was easier for the girls than it was for me. They were mostly just excited and happy about going to their new family. We said goodbye and I let them know that I would see them on Sunday. I left tearfully - they were engrossed in play with their new siblings. I will get to visit tomorrow.
I have to say that I have continued peace about my decision, but a sense of uncertainty about what's next? Sigh.....waiting again.

One More Sleep

When we were leaving F. and H.'s new family yesterday, their new daddy told them they would have 2 more sleeps before they would come back to stay with them. Tonight as she is falling asleep F. told me "only one more sleep!" It warms my heart to know that she is feeling so positive about going to live with her new family.

I cannot believe they will be leaving tomorrow. I have such a peace about it, but I am aslo so sad to say goodbye. I will miss them both. I am so grateful I will get to see them again soon.

This has been such a powerful experience for me - I don't even know how to put it in words.
