To the anonymous commenter who called my account of meeting Sophie "cold and detached":
Yes, we are excited and overjoyed and beside ourselves with gratitude and love for our daughter. When I wrote that post, I was still jet-lagged and probably a bit in shock that our almost five-year journey had finally resulted in this precious little girl. I just wanted to get the facts of our meeting her down for our friends and family--who all of course know how happy we are.
I forget that this blog is read by people who don't know us at all. And who apparently think it is OK to try to ruin our first days with our daughter with cold and nasty anonymous comments. If you are a person who is still waiting and having a bad day because it's hard to see other people getting their children, I'll pray for you. Otherwise, get a life. And thanks for giving me the final push I needed to make this blog private as soon as we get home.
