Two years ago, around the time I met Candice, she and Kevin started filling out the daunting piles of paperwork, required for the adoption process. They had decided to adopt from Haiti and Haiti allows you to adopt siblings so they might even be able to bring home TWO little ones. Candice and Kevin, they are ready. They are excited. At the beginning of the process Candice wrote a beautiful letter to her baby(ies) .
To my Baby,
There are so many things I want to say to you. I cannot express the excitement and anticipation that Daddy and I have for you. We talk about you every day. Although we don’t know your name or if you’re even born yet, we are extremely excited to meet you. We love you already and have never experienced so much love for a person we’ve never met before. Daddy talks about you constantly… it is the sweetest thing in the world. I fall in love with him all over again when he talks about you and our future together as a family. He is so excited for the day that you will be in our arms, as am I. I dream about that day every day. I wonder what you will be like. I dream about the trips we will take together and the experiences we will have as a family. I know that I will never want to let you go when I first hold you in my arms.
I love you so much already.
I am so excited for Candice and Kevin. They are on an incredible life changing Journey. Being a parent, is truly one of God’s beautiful miracles and they will get the joy and privilege of raising a baby (or two) who may have otherwise spent their whole life in an orphanage, or worse. They get to give their babies love and to teach and raise their babies to know a life of love and laughter.
Congrats Candice and Kevin!
