Family of 4!

We are overjoyed to announce that last week, Cory and I accepted the referral of a little girl from India.  She was born on September 5, 2009 and we hope to have her home sometime this fall!  I didn't realize how much you could already love someone that you haven't ever met.  She's beautiful and is said to be a very sweet and loving little girl.  This little girl's story is amazing and it's as though God knew all along that there was this tiny little peanut in India waiting for us to find her!  Isn't He amazing?  We can't wait to share pictures soon!

We also received the exciting news that our agency is allowing us to do concurrent adoptions meaning that our Ethiopian paperwork is going to stay in Ethiopia and once our daughter has been home for one year, we can continue our journey to baby E!  Maybe we'll be able to have a big family after all?!?

Congratulations!!! SO exciting! I actually surprised that you got a referral of child under 2! When I called your agency I was thinking they said 3+ years old. Did you get the info. for my friend who adopted from India through your CHSFS? :) Jenny
