Before you were conceived, I wanted you.
Before you were born, I loved you.
Before you were here an hour, I would die for you.
This is the miracle of love.

    I’m curiously following your web log from day to day, it’s so exiting, especcially since we’re also in the process of adopting, our third child from India. 🙂

    Also I wanted to say that I loved this poem and will write it down and keep it!

    Also it’s quite interesting learning how you raise the money for the adoption, by a raffle! I think no one her in Norway ever thought of that, and I’m not sure if others would approve either… Happy for you that it works for your family, though!

    Wish you lots of luck in your adoption journey. I know it’s hard waiting for your precious child on the other side of the world, and Rani is so beautiful!!!
    But finally the day is there, when you have the longed for child in your arms, and everything is what it was meant to be…

    Warm regards,
