I cried when I saw my friend with her daugther. I had to run to the bathroom to compose myself as I was overcome with emotion. It was just such a happy moment and I felt so privileged to be a part of their special day. I wish all children could know the love that this baby will receive from not only her two mommies, but her extended family, too. The air was full of love. The smiles on everyone's faces and the energy at the adoption celebration was contagious. Perhaps there was something in the water...I think I got the baby bug again!
I am grateful to have such good family and friends. I am grateful for the lovely visit we shared and for the chance to hold this adorable, little girl. I am overwhelmed with the love my friend's have for their child and I wish this unconditional love for every child, every person and everyone. What a beautiful place the world would be if there were more people like them.
We headed home quickly because despite the joy of the visit... Cecily was not herself. She wasn't sleeping, had trouble feeding and just seemed to be in pain for most of the weekend. We piled in the car and I prayed she would feel better. Unfortunately she didn't and we were admitted to the hospital. She's finally resting and taking IV fluids while they test, poke and prod to get to the bottom of this latest hiccup. We are grateful as our little ladybug is being watched by her wonderful medical team. Plus... she got to see Miss Stacy and Miss Katie - her all-time favorite Rady's nurses! It makes such a difference to see familiar faces when checked in at Hotel de Radys.
I am now watching her sleep and I am wondering if perhaps I should take advantage of this very comfortable chair... She looks comfortable and peaceful. I hope that this will continue tomorrow. Onwards and upwards!
