Today Jim and I have been married 11 years! This picture was taken a couple of days ago but I can tell you one thing I was just as happy this day as I was to be getting married 11 years ago.
The last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind and honestly I find it hard to believe that is has only been 2 weeks. Our letter of approval came on Thursday and I have yet to post some of the pictures from that day. This was Mike the Fed Ex man’s first baby delivery :) he was so nice and let me take his picture I was a little shaky, it was s o exciting.
Jim did not have to work until 11 that day so he was able to come to my office and sign the approval! And in case you are wondering we checked the box that said YES. I then took it down at lunch to Fed Ex it back to our agency.
I thought that was all the excitement of the week until I woke up this morning and checked my email. Lisa from The Long Road to China had pictures of Chloe! Her daughter is in the same CWI (children's welfare institute) and someone had sent her pictures from July so that she could see if her daughter was in them. As soon as she saw Chloe she knew she had pictures. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical but as soon as I opened the email all doubt was lost it was definitely our Chloe! I might be a bit biased already but I think she is the most beautiful baby ever! I can not ever thank Lisa enough for taking the time to care and bring me such joy as being able to see just a little tiny bit of my daughters life!
Can’t wait to go to China!!!!!!
