In Honor of National Adoption Month....

I thought I'd share a little blurb I wrote for WACAP (they wanted something small for there blog) in honor of National Adoption month.  It's been almost 9 months since we brought Ramya home, and we are so blessed to have her here!


 
Ramya has been home with us for about 8 months now and I still look at her in awe and disbelief that she is finally home.  At the same time, though, it feels as though she has been here with us all of her life.  We read so many different books on adoption to try and prepare for her arrival, yet we had no idea what it would feel like to welcome a 5-year-old, from another country, in to our home. While the books we read did help us prepare for different scenarios we may encounter and did provide practical and effective strategies for building attachment, they didn't prepare us for the immense amount of love we would feel for her.  Through the waiting, anticipation, prayers, tears, and advocacy we went through before she even came home, we began to bond and attach.  We fell in love.  Though she didn't grow in my womb, she grew inside our hearts and quickly became woven in to our family.  As with anything in life, there are harder moments and easier ones, however, Ramya is such a blessing to our family, and we are honored to call her daughter.
