Oh my Teeny tiny girl!!


Sorry about the delay ...I have been too busy staring into my sweet baby girls HUGE eyes. Yes HUGE. She is 11 weeks old and a tiny 11#s . She is beautiful!! I so wish you could see her. But alas , she isnt legally mine (tell that to my heart) and I can not share online. Pray for me to get in and out of court quickly THEN she will be mine to share! Maybe I can share a picture of a little hand or foot...they are awfully cute too !

Of course my call came when I WAS NOT expecting. Trust me that is how it will happen for you , if you are waiting. You just cant plan these things. My sweet caseworker called from a different line so my "special ring" didnt happen, and I had no idea it was my agency. I was also napping, so I was a bit slow on the uptake LOL! BUT when I heard Christy say "I have some exciting news for you.." I was awake !Can you imagine ? I was only #4, but in my heart I knew it was coming. Notice down a post or 2 I mentioned I had a feeling I would be seeing my girl soon? I was right! I love the number thing, and it was right on. We were #4 , recd our referral at 4:22 on 12/04 and she is our 4th child :)


Now the REAL waiting begins....

So happy for you! I can only imagine the feeling!
Please put us on the email list when you share her sweet picture.
Hopefully one day we can get our families together and have the opportunity to meet this little one!
We need to up the ante with this paperchasing stuff so we can get ourselves on the wait list!
