Today marks five weeks of waiting since we passed court and nine weeks of waiting since we met our sweet boy. NINE WEEKS! That sixty-three days! Two months of growth and development we've missed out on.
I'm trying to be careful and really think about what I say and what I post on facebook. In the past 24 hours I have posted and deleted two different comments! ha! I don't want to be negative or complainy... I'm just SO CRANKY.
One of the comments was about maternity leave. It's been a frustrating topic since day one. Frustrating and just so complicated it's hard to even explain. In my personal opinion, every mama, adoptive or not should get six months paid maternity leave with their child. Sound good?
When I step back and take a deep breath I can see clearly how lucky I am...
I work for a company who offers adoption assistance! wow!
I have a husband with a very flexible schedule (allowing him to watch Arthur when I go back to work)
I have a debt free life (if you don't count our house and one car)
A debt free adoption (with help from all of you lovely people)
Oh! and the most beautiful son in the whole world. I'm going to stop complaining now.
Hoping to share good news soon!
