This was us. 6 years ago today. Holding in a gigantic secret!
Oh, look how youthful and well rested we look! And I thought I had dark circles under my eyes then?!?!?! HA. Those circles make my circles today JEALOUS!
That snowy walk on the cold February day for us 6 years ago was one taken holding hands and JOYFUL in our hearts. Our Super Bowl Sunday will always be remembered for that day we got that phone call from the birth parents of Bella saying "we picked you."
I love the innocence of that day. We didn't even know all that was about to unfold. We didn't even know the heartache we would experience nor the tremendous JOY. What an amazing gift. Only a few days after that precious phone call on Super Bowl Sunday, I saw our baby for the very first time. She was so beautiful and I instantly fell in love with her.
Although I adore Super Bowl Sunday for the snacks, the friendship, the beer, the chips and dips and oh yeah, the game ads...mostly I now come to think of Super Bowl Sunday as the day Bella first found a spot in my heart. The day two brave kids picked US to be parents of their unborn baby. The day Mike and I cried and wept together, realizing our dreams were about to come true (more than we ever could have guessed, eh?!)
So for us, the Super Bowl really is pretty SUPER. Happy Sunday people. Have a SUPER day.
