Right Around The Corner!!!!!!!

In the past several weeks, many, many families have been traveling to the Congo to pick up their children or they are getting ready to travel in the coming weeks.  I feel like I've been chomping on the bit and finally I couldn't restrain myself any longer.  All of the adorable pictures of the babies in the orphanage hasn't helped my patience :)  I emailed my caseworker to see where I am and this is what she answered:

I have two babies coming in and the 3rd one is yours…….just waiting on another one to arrive.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???!!!!!  I am doing cartwheels!!!!  I wonder if I will finally see sweet Baby Joaquin's face before the 4th of May- that's my "official" anniversary of when my completed dossier was submitted!  Wouldn't THAT be a great gift?!

I have a feeling that I will have a very, very hard time falling asleep tonight!


  1. Oh my goodness gracious, that is sooooooo exciting! I cannot wait to see his precious face!

  2. Oh my goodness!!!!! So exciting. :o)

  3. Wow! Such exciting news! I'm certain you had dreams of baby Joaquin faces!! I hope so anyway!!


  4. Yay!!! May 4th is a special day for us too... we get to find out gender of our baby!!!! So excited for you!!!

  5. wow great. I look forward to hear about your little boy. Hope you have the referral in a few days.
