One Year Ago

One year ago, my life changed.

One year ago, my mom passed sweetly from this world to a much better place. As Heather and I said our goodbyes, we asked her to help send a baby on its way to our family.

One year ago, Heather and I had not even discussed adoption.

One year ago, our friends were able to adopt a beautiful baby girl. We went over to congratulate them and held precious little Addison.

One year ago, my life changed.

One year ago, Heather and I came home from our friends' house, looked at each other and knew that it was time for us to start the adoption process. We have now been approved for 5 1/2 months, and still look forward for the baby that my mom is helping to prepare to come to our family.

Although we are not able to share the excitement with my mom that we are hoping to adopt, I know that she is very excited for Heather and I. I am so forever grateful for my mom and for her amazing example. I love and miss my mommy.
