Oh Happy Day!

I can't even begin to describe what this day has been like emotionally. Imagine all of the emotional highs and lows that I've experienced over the past year concentrated and then condensed down and experienced all in one day.

THAT my friends was today!!! A roller coaster ride of emotion and although time seemed to stand still for awhile, the rest of the day moved at breakneck speed!

Thank you so much to EVERYONE who posted their congratulations and best wishes today. For those still waiting for their own referrals, the journey does get rough at times but your turn will come and you'll see it's so worth it! :)

A dear sweet person emailed me privately that my baby was the cutest baby she had ever ever seen on any of these boards. OF COURSE SHE IS!! LOL! I responded that I absolutely agreed. Now I know that once she gets her referral (fingers crossed for next month for her!), she will rightfully think that HER baby is the cutest baby she's ever ever seen on any of these boards. That's as it should be and I'm ok with that.

I thought I was all cried out until I came home to the most thoughtful gesture today. I drove up to my home and saw "It's a girl!" balloons tied to the plants just before my porch and a nice pink bow tied to my doorknob with a card left in the door! Thank you so much, Lela. You will never know how much that meant to me. :)

I've joined the Yahoo group for the Fuzhou SWI and ordered Emerson's Finding Ad and I'm just exhausted so I think I'm going to go to bed now and dream happy dreams of my sweet little girl. Tomorrow morning I'll get her complete medical information, growth reports and learn more about her first year of life.

Goodnight everyone. :)

Hi Denise,

My name is Jen - all the way over in Australia - we are LID 17th August and I can't tell you how wonderful it is to read of allocations/referrals. Congratulations, Emerson is incredibly beautiful and I wish you a speedy journey between now and when you hold her for the first time.

Thank you, Jen!! I know it's an even longer process for Australians just getting to LID, so this must be an awfully long wait for you! I hope things speed up and you receive your referral very soon! :)

Well I am sure you have just experienced a day you will never forget. My guess is that down the road are a few more of those kinds of days. Wishing a speedy timeframe til you hold her and take her home to her forever family.
