a miracle.

Dear Friends, yesterday in court we were given the most beautiful gift, Poet's mother relinquished her rights making us Poet's only parents. I believe that all your well wishes along with my families help make this miracle happen.  I am, i believe still in shock, it was a very powerful and kind moment that i was able to share with her birth mother one that has not quiet sunk in yet.  I know that  this is real and beautiful and everything i had hoped for and now i wait to legally adopt my little girl to completely feel
the reality of this incredible news.  I love her so very much and i am heading home to montreal to be with my family and perhaps to be able to truly cry in the protection of their loving arms.

Thank you dear, dear friends i can never express that enough and in a short few months (to long still) i will be able to introduce you fully to this incredible being named Poet.

Oh wow it makes my heart happy to read this. I'm so happy for you - and for Poet - that you've found each other and will be able to stay together. I look forward to hearing more about her as you continue on your journey.

Dear Nadia the true miracle happened when she was first put into your arms. You were a mother and daughter then. Joe and I are thrilled for you and can't wait to see tons of pictures of little Poet. xoxo

Dear Corine,

Yes that is true- we believe that there has been miracles all though out our journey. I loved her the first second i met her and perhaps even before that. It is hard to know how to feel or what words to associate with all that is happening and how much to share and not to share but just like our journey to the hill, we know that it was meant to be and that every step, miss step, path brought us to her and her to us and that i get to share my life with her is a dream come true.

thank you Joe and Corine for your kindness

Congratulations, Nadia! This is the best news and I cannot wait for all of the legal stuff to become finalized for you. What a wonderful gift! I have been rather silent as I have read along, but I have followed and have been hoping for you all. Again, congrats!

Dearest Nadia,
You are such a sweet and gentle soul and I couldn't be happier for you...for all of you.
From the first day I found your blog, I knew there was something beautiful about you. I wish you all so many happy days and I really look forward to hearing about life on the hill with your sweet little girl.

I hope you can feel the hug I'm sending. ♥

This is such incredible news. As a mother and a friend of many adoptive parents I am crying for joy for you and your daughter.

I hope you will be able to breathe deeply now.

Waiting to hear her story...

Nadia, I'm so happy to hear the news. Ever since hearing that Wednesday would be a big day, I have spoken your and Poet's names in prayer and I know many others have done the same thing.

How blessed you both are to have each other. I thank God every day for allowing me to parent my beautiful daughter, and for the woman who surrendered her rights.

Adoption is truly an amazing thing.

God bless you and your family as you celebrate.

The photo is just adorable.

I thought of you on Wednesday, and other days too, as you moved through the days, wondering and hoping, but the result is magical and not so rare for you. It feels right that Poet is in your care. What a lucky little girl.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful news. You were definitely in my prayers for Wednesday. I am so, so relieved and happy for you. I have three girls and kept on imagining having to give one of them up. I'm thrilled for you!

Take care,

As a mom waiting (not so) patiently for the past nearly 2 years to adopt my 3 year old little girl, my heart is busting for you. We are about to head into pr termination hearings, and I am so glad you are through that uncertain time. Much love to you and your daughter as you get closer to permanency. Love, Meghan

Dearest Nadia.

All my warmest thoughts go to you and your family on this special day. I am so very happy for you. This is indeed a miracle and if anyone deserves a miracle, it must be you. I have bought Poet a little present, that I look so much forward to giving her (and you) in Scotland. You have both been so much in my thoughts and I'm so glad that our prayers have been heard ♡

Love and big hug to you and your little precious sun ray

I love your babies name and I honestly believe she came to you because she needed you as much as you, her. I am just glad that you found each other and life for both of you will change forever - in a very good way.

Enjoy the change....

Of course I am so very happy for you and K, but my real joy is for this beautiful little soul that has found her place in this great big world. Let the adventure begin!

As soon as I saw your entry title, tears welled in my eyes. The love and generosity, pain, heart ache and human connection that went on between all of you in that courtroom was a testament to the goodness of all of you and the power of a little child to bring it all about. The contrast of pain and elation is just like the process of giving birth and may you be high on joy for a very long time.
Congratulations on your new little family
Clare

Dearest friend, Oh how my heart sings as I today read your words. God's blessings overflow in the perfection of His love and grace. As you are falling into the loving arms of family and preparing for the next step in the process of completion of making Poet fully and legally a part of your family I continue to pray for you. Thank you for opening that window to allow for the love and prayers of so many around the world to be with you on this journey. Much love, always, Kristin
