Running the Race

I have trained heavily for my first 5k race the past 4 months. The race was this past weekend. During the race I was very focused on finishing and doing my best, but with a half mile to go my mind drifted to Hannah and the adoption process. I thought to myself "finishing this race is much like the adoption process, in the beginning you don't know what to expect, near the middle you start to believe you can finish and at the end it gets extremely painful, but the joy of finishing is well worth the effort". So here we are... we can see the finish line, and the closer we get the more excited we are to finally hold her in our arms. Three to four months left until referral.
