HURRAY!

We went to get the mail today and among all the Christmas cards, we had something from our agency. I immediately open it, thinking that it would be a letter saying that our paperwork was submitted or something else on the status. I rip it open and BAM!

WE ARE CERTIFIED!

I can't believe it. We were thinking that it would be another month at least. Robby and I bounced around a bit, I may have cried a little. We are so thrilled. This means that we can now bring a baby home at any time... Just got to find our birthmom. :) So we are working hard on our profile and hope to have it up and running soon. We're still struggling at writing the letter to the Birthmom/birth parents. I just don't know what to say to the woman who will provide us with the greatest gift possible. How do you start a letter to the most magnificent person in the world? Hopefully I'll figure it out soon. I know that many prayers were answered for this to happen so quickly and I am truly grateful for this experience.

Funny little thing, our anniversary of our first date was on the 17th so Robby bought me a necklace. It says I (heart) adoption. The day before was our official certified date. I truly love adoption and all the wonderful things that it has brought in to my life.

My only advice for your letter is to JUST BE YOURSELF! She will read it and just know that you are the ones! Or, maybe you should make up a really cute Fairy Tale story about you finding your prince, but you can't live happily ever after until your story is complete with your baby! My adoptive couple made a story kind of like that but with Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I LOVED it and I really felt like I could see their personality! Congrats again for getting certified!
