This afternoon I sat down at my computer, opened my email and found this waiting for me:
My beautiful Bulgarian princess, Alayna, soaking up some sun and daydreaming of mama (okay, I doubt it, but a mama can dream right!?)! My friend Amanda and her husband Tim are currently in Bulgaria meeting their two Bulgarian sweethearts. Their daughter-to-be, Gloria, is in the same orphanage as Alayna and they were kind enough to snap this picture for me and send it my way! What a gift! Needless to say, I have been staring at it all afternoon. I dream of the day when I can finally have this little lady in my arms forever and see her sweet face every single day! After such a long journey, that thought seems so surreal, but in just a little over two weeks, that dream will finally be a reality! I can't wait!
