My dream

Dreams Do Come True!!
Many people who adopt have had a dream years earlier about their child to be. I am no exception. My dream happened when I was single and in my twenties. In my dream I was working somewhere and standing behind a counter. One of my coworkers pointed at a little girl and said "See that little girl over there? You can have her if you want her." I remember my heart leaping! She was sitting on a bench and was of Asian descent. She was wearing a dress and Mary Jane type shoes with white cuffed socks. She was swinging her legs and looking at the floor. She had a bob haircut with bangs and was probably about 4 years old. I walked over to her and knelt down beside her. I looked at her and said "Do you want me to be your mommy?" She shook her head yes and I remember thinking that my life was going to change forever as she hugged me.
Whether you believe that dreams are given to you as a sign of things to come or if you believe that they are just a subconscious manifestation of your deepest desires, my dream is now coming true!! I can't tell you the peace and comfort I feel when I look at pictures of my little girl. She is the girl in my dream and I can't wait to hold her in my arms!!
