In the Beginning

Dear bug,

There are a lot of these adoption diaries on the interwebs. Your mommy and I resisted creating one because it felt too personal. Also, we didn’t want to be like everyone else. Now that it has been 18 months since we started waiting for you, I think the whole world knows we want to be parents! (Even Cameroon and Nigeria got the message because we get spam from there all the time!)

So since we’re waiting and the whole world knows anyway, I thought I’d start writing to you.

I made a book for you and Mommy, way back in the beginning, in December 2010. Here are the first few pages.

A Song

In the beginning it was dark...

...but there was a star.

...and inside the star were a thousand-thousand worlds, like leaves in a forest.

You and I were there, but we didn't know each other...

When you get here I’ll show you the whole book. And maybe we’ll write our own book, me and you together.

I hope that you are safe and loved. I am sending you so many blessings, little one.

Love always,
