  4. I didn't do as well as you making it through with out crying. Wishing along side you, praying along with you, and can't wait to REJOICE in the wonderful news that your little man is home with you! That's for sharing that special book! I can just imagine the smile on his face when one day he sits and reads all your entries as you anticipated his arrival.

  5. And now I think I will be crying all day long ... and then doing a little hunt to find it myself. Maybe a Mother's Day gift to me.

    Oh, Becca, next Mother's Day you will be holding your almost one year old son. YOUR SON!!!! I cannot wait!

    Thank you so much for sharing!

  8. You have the most beautiful spirit! And I must say, that although we are not an adoption family, we just watched you reading that beautiful book three times as my little ones said "again" and "again" :)

    So so happy for you!!

  10. Oh, Rebekah! I just love you so much!! I bawled through the whole thing. It is simply beautiful! I've been thinking about a child-like way to tell R about her story and it is perfect. I am ordering it today and reading it to her tomorrow.

    I can't wait for you to meet baby boy. I can't wait to meet him myself!

  13. Very sweet, Bekah-Boo...I have to echo Meeghan: Maddy was sitting on my lap and loved it as well. And I think my baby thought it was for him, but we'll just let him think that ;). Counting down the days until the good news starts to pour in and we meet our three new little men...

  16. I got a bit misty on that one! *laugh* That story was written especially for you! Many, Many blessings on your growing family! Oh! How awesome it was to see the camera turn to the baby bassinet at the end of the film. A cozy little place for baby boy to rest his head.*wink*

  19. As an adoptee...that is the most beautiful story, ever. I wish I had had THAT book when I was young. It's perfect. I'm going to pick that one up!

  20. Wow, I'm crying too - happy tears for you, and I have to admit, sad tears for me. I'm so worried I won't ever get to read ANY book to any child. You are so blessed.

  24. Thank you for sharing that one. It is my favorite and we have bought several. I just stumbled on your blog this week and it has truly blessed me. We adopted our son 15 months ago and the joy just continues to grow.

  25. Add "My Adopted Child-There's no one like you" (Kevin Leman)to your library too, it's a real tear jerker for me!

    I would have been surprized if I hadn't!! What a beautiful story!!
    It's hard for me to imagine that long ago I was a wish. I'm sure Baby Boy will love this when he's older!! Thanks for sharing it with your bloggie friends!!

  30. Oh my goodness...I have NO IDEA how I missed this post, but I just linked to it from BB. I am bawling like a baby!! I MUST have this book.

    And to think, today was going to be day two with no tears since Charlie was placed with us. I guess I'll start the count again tomorrow. :)

    You are so beautiful, Rebakah...and I absolutely cannot wait until your baby boy is in your arms!

    Love,

    Melba
