On Contacting Her...

We sent the letter today.


Double enveloped, just to make sure the right person opens it.
Included photos of my beautiful little family.

The waiting game begins.

    1. I feel excited, nervous and happy too! Along with a whole lot of other stuff that I can't even begin to decipher!

  2. Holy moly, Jess. I am so proud of you. I can't even begin to understand how I would feel in your shoes. My mind mentally closes down. Can't handle it.

    Honestly, every time I even think about it I start crying a little. It seems a bit silly for ME to cry, I realize.

    I think you are SO brave. So strong.... You've handled this all SO beautifully. I really admire you, Jess. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! I will be praying this letter along its journey. And pray for its opening.

    WOW! Just wow. And yay!

    1. You know what? My mind closes down a little bit too. It's not silly for you to cry - I am exactly the same. Just yesterday I read a blog post about a little baby and cried my eyes out! Thank you for praying - I really feel like I put that letter into God's hands rather than a post box. It's completely out of my control now, and that would be a touch frightening if I didn't now how great my God is.

  4. Such a brave journey! WELL DONE.

    I hope you have some peace tonight :)

    You know, hypothetically, if I was your birth Mama, I would be SO pleased to see your beautiful little family. But thats just me. :)

  7. That's a precious photo, Jess. I haven't thought about it from your kids' perspective...your birthmum is family to them too.

    Ditto what Sophie Slim said. Your birthmum has every reason to be proud of you. xx

    1. Yes, I haven't really said anything to Elliot yet, though he knows that letter was special. I'm not sure what to say? I plan to wait and see what happens before saying anything.
