A year ago today was the day we received the news that we were being blessed with MiMo. Even though our infertility journey spanned 10 plus years our adoption journey was far more expediant. We started the process in May 2015 and was matched in September 2015. Every September 2nd we celebrate MiMo’s Draft Day.
Lea and I received calls from our agency but they only left a message on Lea’s phone for some reason. We went to dinner (the wine from that dinner is in the first frame) and Lea told me that we had been chosen by some amazing birth parents. We laughed, cried, I knocked over my drink that we were having at dinner. Then we realized that in under 3 months something that we have been waiting 11 years for is finally a realization. Our child was coming home to us.
Draft Day is a celebration of our adoption story. Every Sept 2nd we will celebrate MiMo’s Draft Day. Today we let her sleep in and each year we will celebrate it in a way that’s uniquely hers. Happy Draft Day MiMo!
The video above shows what happened in the following 2 1/2 months leading to her birth.
