Well, the day finally arrived! We met Wren today!
I was incredibly nervous...something that has never been much of an issue in our past adoptions. Martin, on the other hand, was all calm and collected...completely at peace! Go figure! :)
We were the last to arrive at the Civil Affairs office, and upon seeing us, Wren smiled a shy little smile! It was good to see that she recognized us!
Wren was shy and unsure, and a whole lot overwhelmed. Thankfully, Tara (her foster mom), and Katie, (who has visited Wren regularly the past few years) were both present to help ease the transition and explain what was happening.
Wren definitely felt more comfortable with me initially, but by the evening she had warmed up to Martin and was coloring with him!
As for me...the reality of all of this has yet to sink in. It seems unreal that this has actually happened...that we are Wren's and she is ours! However, it feel so very right!
