Her Name is Beautiful!

We got THE call this morning!  Our girl is gorgeous!  She is so perfect, I cannot even tell you!  She just turned seven and no, she doesn’t have all her baby teeth, but I’m OK with that.  The only measurements we have are a year old, so we asked for new sizes!  I think all the size 5 clothes might work!  Bonus!  And her name is beautiful…. and it means light.  Perfect. 

I’m exhausted and thrilled and teary and overjoyed and overwhelmed and giddy and I keep staring at this darling little face on the computer screen!

      Hi Wendi! We were approved in Feb. 2008, so our wait for the referral was 33 months. A LONG time. I hadn’t heard about the deleted list. Oh my word! I’m sure I should be crazy busy, but I’m not actually sure what I should be doing…… :o) The calm before the storm, I’m sure! Best wishes as you wait.

    Felicitaciones! What great news for your family! I hope that USCIS process will go quickly and you can have Nora home before Christmas.
