And since I'm absolutely sucking at getting posts up lately, I figured 'Hey, why not just post some of my Facebook conversations about the Grammys'!
... okay, even now, it doesn't seem like a good idea. But 2 minutes when I started this, it did.
Friend: The former American Idol girls, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson are beyond incredible!! Pursue your dreams!
Me: I want someone to make me a ham sandwich... one day... oh one day.
Friend: That can be arranged : )
Me: You think?! Cuz its been 35 years... and I was starting to think maybe it would never come true for me! All those tears wasted on my pillow... *siiigh*
Friend: Sometimes dreams take time, hang in there ; P
Me: *looks at the sleeping wife* Yes, sometimes they do come true... *pokes the wife* ... but apparently, not tonight. Maybe tomorrow... *wife mumbles something about 'getting my own darned sandwich'* ... or the next day.
|I have dreams!|
I'm still pretty sure that neither of my adopted kids were dreaming of ME. Maybe they dreamed of having a family, maybe not. Maybe they were happy where they were.
|Love the baby pictures! So cute, not crying... lovely!|
But in the midst of me thumbing through all these pictures, it dawned on me "Hey, he was happy!".
|Foster Family and Bing had many outings, this seems to be|
a Disney-esque type park
But I guess, the system works. Bing goes up for International Adoption, and he gets adopted. Now, the Foster Family has Fostered another Little Girl. So that means that 2 children now have families instead of one.
This is a good thing... I guess... but still, I'm not sure that Bing was really "dreaming" of me. I think he was having a pretty good time in China with his Foster Family.
Now, before that sounds all mellow dramatic and sad, I go back to "and some of us, don't even know what dreams we have yet." I do believe our family is a dream-come-true for Bing (in a humble way). Not that we were the ONLY dream. I believe a great many families could have been a 'dream-come-true' for Bing, including his Foster Family. But he is our dream come true as well. And one day, when he looks back on his life, I hope that he can look back and say "Yes, all my dreams have come true." Hopefully, some of those dreams will be because he was our son.
Oh, and a big shout out to my Fake-Brother-In-Law, whom he and his wife have begun the Adoption Journey as well!!! YAY! More dreams coming true!
