It's a Girl

Here's a picture of my girls and Kirstie's boys announcing the news (and blowing kisses...of course!!) that they have a new baby sister!!!!!!!!!! Jocelyn ran through the house screaming and yelling when we got the call and Gabriella broke down crying!!!!!!!!! What little sweeties!!!! Kirstie's boys are too funny!!! When I was talking to our social worker Jenson was just hugging and holding me!!!! Braxton's comment said, "it's really is going to hurt when you have that baby!" So everyone experienced the moment differently!!!! Kirstie did a fabulous job taking pictures and taping everything on the video camera!!!

I promise to post more of the story tomorrow...right now...I'm going to enjoy the moment and get the best nights sleep that I have been lacking for weeks!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited for you!! You helped me so much in the beginning of our process and I am forever greatful to you for that. It's awesome to see you getting your referral already..we started the process around the same time that you submitted your dossier, but due to Illinois laws, it took us until July to get our dossier completed. It's exciting to see that this really may happen for us...after waiting almost three years for China...we could have a referral in the next six months from Ethiopia and that just gives me butterflies!
