I am so excited! I've only recently started posting here, but now I will be posting a lot more.

Today we accepted our referral for our newborn baby girl, who was born in Guatemala on March 12th!

We have several months until we can bring her home, but we are thrilled beyond words!!!

In otherwords help your self to sharing info I hear "Guatmala" mentioned often by folks as places they'd adopt to from....

Thank you all so much for your warm wishes. It means so much. It will probably be at least 6 months until we can bring her home. We are hoping it's not much longer.

But, she is in private foster care while our case proceeds and we can visit her. When we visit, she even gets to stay in the hotel with us full-time. :) We are likely visiting in June.

Edited to say:
Oops.. I decided to remove the link since it had our last name on it. Just being cautious.. You can PM me for it if you'd like to see her. :)

Lily is gorgeous! How wonderful that you will be able to visit her in June. We are just starting the process of choosing an adoption agency, so it will be awhile before we are in your shoes, but it is so exciting to look forward to that wonderful moment of getting first pictures! Keep us posted.
