Guess What?

WE HAVE A REFERRAL!!! Yesterday we learned that we were chosen to be the parents of a little boy from Burundi. Yep we know who BB is! We are so excited and a bit terrified! We know very little about him but we decided to take the leap of faith that he is meant to be with us. He is about a year old and appears to be healthy. There is so much yet to do and yet I think this could go pretty fast but then who knows we are still dealing with a foreign country and anything could happen.

We have drafted our letter formally requesting to adopt him and we are gathering up all our documents to be sent to our agency ASAP. Now I wish we would have got our doctor letter fixed alot sooner. But that should be the only thing I need to collect and as long as I can find a notary to go to my doctor's appointment with me then I will have that done next Tuesday.
Now of course things could still go wrong but we are really hopeful about this one!

I am a great grandma of the little one and I am prepared. I already crocheted him a blue blanket. I know he is not a wee infant, but I wanted him to have it as a keepsake from the great grandma. I can't wait to see him. I am over the moon as the Brits would say.
