Anticipation is tough for me. Busyness and doing are much easier. Maybe I’d be able to appreciate the waiting better if simple activities like putting on socks weren’t such a challenge. But at this point, waiting is really all that’s left to be done. And while we wait, we live with place holders…an empty crib, unused bouncy chairs, stacks of diapers, an entire wardrobe…which remind us every second about the little one who will soon join our family (as if the giant belly weren’t reminder enough).

Yesterday I read some posts on a great blog, Under the Sycamore, about a family’s wait for the child they are adopting. Mom, Ashley Ann, happens to be a wonderful photographer and took this image…depicting their waiting experience. How gorgeous.
