Love Without Boundaries- "What is Adoption?" {I cried at the end}

I have cried about a million times these past few weeks... it's been an emotional time.
I thought I'd be excited during the wait for a referral(and I am) but it's just really... hard.
And I hear the 4-6 months after the referral while you are waiting for the go ahead to travel is THE WORST- because you have "met" your child and she is yours, but you have to just do a lot more waiting- knowing she is still waiting for us to come get her.  
They say adoption is not for the faint of heart... that is so true.  But it will all be worth it in the end.  She is worth the wait, worth the endless paperwork, worth the expense, worth the tears.
Because every child is beautiful and special- every child deserves a family.

I’m only one. But still, I am one.
I cannot do everything, but still, I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
– Edward Everett Hale
