Zane in the Keys - July 2009
So I have been failing at blogging!  In a way, I have purposely not been blogging - sort of ignoring 'the wait', in hopes it will come sooner if I not writing about it all the time.  But while we continue to wait (and wait, and wait for Mia), we've been having wonderful summertime fun with Zane.  We recently took him on his first vacation to the Keys.  It was only a few days but we had a great time and it was nice to travel with Zane, really for the first time.  He did a great job in the car and loves being in the boat and the water.  He is at such a fun age right now - doing new things all the time.  I love this toddler age!  But of course, we continue to wait for Mia - at best, we could get a referral next fall (2010) and at worst (I think) in 2011.  We have faith that God has a plan for our beautiful daughter and she will join us at the perfect time.  To be honest, I couldn't imagine taking Zane on a trip around the world, literally.  If we had to travel now, I think we would leave him home but we really want him to be there when we get Mia, so another year will probably be a good thing.  Plus, I'm really enjoying giving him my full attention.  Meanwhile, several of my friends have either brought home their daughters recently or are about to travel.  It give me hope and peace when I see that it really does happen - even if it takes much longer than we ever imagined!
