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.
