Heartache During ‘The Wait’

Posted by MaMa under: Friends and Family; The Waiting Game .

One of the hardest things to handle during the wait for travel approval (for a special needs child) is when your child has a birthday and you are halfway around the world. I know during our wait Sheridan celebrated his second birthday. It was an extremely hard day with lots of tears shed as your heart aches to be holding your child.

Today is Shelby’s second birthday. Her family should be traveling to get her by the first of November. I just wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday and let her know how much she is already loved here in the United States.

It was nice to meet you all at “First Fridays.” Sheridan is a beautiful baby!! I completely understand about the birthday thing. We were not with Emily Grace on her first birthday. On that day, she was all I could think about. I still do not know if her foster family honored her first birthday or not. We had a mini party, here, in her honor. It helped a little bit. This month she is now 1 1/2 years old so we decided to have a first birthday party for her with her family. She will celebrate with us after all with pictures to prove it. 🙂 Happy birthday Shelby!!
