You guessed it! Those little shoes being added to our line-up means that we are adding to our family! We are THRILLED and ELATED and OVER THE MOON and just so very HAPPY to share with you that we have been matched with a baby in Vietnam and we hope to travel in June to bring home our girl right before her first birthday.
We have been in the process to complete our family for a looooong time. Like years. We never shared it here because it always seemed so very firmly in the "maybe". The program closed and re-opened. Then it opened but no one knew what was going to happen. Then things slowed down a lot. Then it changed to a mostly special needs and older child program. Then one of us (not saying who) got a temporary case of cold feet. Then someone got over their cold feet. So even when we heard that we were probably getting close to our second child, we still kept it to ourselves, as it just didn't feel like it could really ever possibly happen.
But it did.
Oh my, how it did.
Our girl is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E, but you'll have to take my word on it, as Vietnam asks that we don't share any photos publicly until the adoption is finalized and we don't want to do ANYTHING that could make problems.
Oh, I can't not let you have a peek... A peek is okay, right?
Cutest ear ever, right?
This is all so...BIG. HUGE, in fact.
Awesome and wonderful and amazing and HUGE.
None of us can stop smiling...
