Out of breathe, I yelled "Abbey" and she said, "Amy, I have a Christmas Present for you" from that moment on...I was a little bit in a state of shock. I saw her and felt so blessed. She felt familiar. Anyone who has gone through "the call" knows that it's so much to process but I was lucky enough to have Sandro, Christian and so many good friends near.
I was not expecting the call. I thought it would take a little longer AND I just assumed the agency would be closed Christmas week --BUT I was wearing my Liv necklace (courtesy Suzanne), my father's ring AND my Africa T-shirt on this day. I was also obsessively listening to an unplugged version of "Africa" on my Itunes. All of these things were special to that day.
Her name is awesome and it made me giggle most of the day. It's charming and melodic and I spent most of the day smiling about her and the perfect timing of it all and thanked my father. Outside of studying her pictures and sharing the magical news, I have been counting my blessings as I know that I am so so lucky to have this special being enter my life. I want to thank everyone who has supported me through this process. I am so grateful and Thank You Santa!
