It's so strange to write a post wishing Sabrina a Happy 6 Month's Birthday. In some ways I still can't even believe we have a baby, let alone one that turned half a year old today. I guess when you resign yourself to the fact that you'll never have a child and then carry that with you for 20 years it becomes ingrained. Even as we prepared and completed the 11 month process of being cleared for adoption, in the back of my mind something was telling me we were going to waste a whole lot of money on this, remain childless, and then move on. The three week match and month long wait for her arrival was surreal. I hate to say this because I've heard it thousands of times before from other parents, but I honestly was not prepared for the total love I feel for that kid. Especially now, when she's so interactive, inquisitive, and playful. All she does is laugh and talk her baby language all day; crying is a rarity. Even day care asked, "Does she ever stop talking?". I told Gregg today as we were playing with her on the bed, I never thought it would be like this. She is the most amazing, wonderful thing ever to happen to us and she makes my heart explode when I see her. I thank her incredible birth mother every night, and can't wait to see her next month and show her the bundle of love she gave us. Here are some pics of the last few days. Happy (Half) Birthday Little Girl!
