Saying Goodbye

On Friday, our last day, we got to "sleep in" a little longer.  Then we packed bars for lunch and went to HH for the day.

Just the day before, one of my best friends, Becca, got her referral--so I popped in to give her little girl some love. :)  You can read her pretty cool story here.

We spent the day with Little Girl in her room.  Playing with all of her cute little roommates.  We hung out through playtime, bottles, naps and bathtime.  The day flew by.  Just as she was falling asleep in my arms for her second nap, it was time to say goodbye... ugh...  I knew it was coming.  There was just one last kiss before handing her back to her special mother...  So hard...

Sweet Girl, grow big and strong while we're gone.  We don't have the words to tell you how much we have loved spending this week with you--and how we long to have you home.  We miss you.  We are so thankful that you are being loved while we're not there--even though we wish that we were the ones who could show you love each day.  We love you, Little Girl.  Aching for the time when we'll be together again...


  1. Oh, this makes me cry!! Can't wait until she is back in your arms!! So neat that you got to love on Becca's little girl too! How special!

  2. The hardest thing... Praying you'll be back soon!

  3. Can't wait until she's here!!
    Love you!
