Thank you, thank you. Thank you for being on this long journey with us, and for all of your kind words and sweet wishes and prayers and tears and enthusiasm and joy that this little girl has arrived in the world and in her families' — both her birth family's and her adoptive family's — arms. Andy and I are each reading every one of the comments. There is a lot of sniffling, and occasionally outright sobbing. The comments are so beautiful, each one a wish for Amelia. I always imagine all of them together sparkling like a net of stars across the sky for her, like so many stars I wished on over the years. Thank you. It has been a week filled with every emotion (I could list them, but I'm typing with one hand), and more love and happiness than I have ever known. Oh, dear, sweet, darling, darling girl. She blinks when she's awake, and looks placidly out at all of us. She purses her rosebud lips and sticks out her tongue. She claps her feet (too big already for all her socks and booties). Buongiorno, bella principessa. You had three rainbows over your house in your first week.
