So how far into the new year can it be before you have to stop saying, “We got another late Christmas gift”? I’m thinking since January’s not quite over, we’re still good to use that phrase. That being said, we got a third late Christmas gift! And if you thought the previous two I wrote about were awesome, wait until you read about this one.
Jeremy and I are beyond excited to announce that we have finally been matched with our sweet baby girl!!! We accepted a referral yesterday and our LOI (Letter of Intent) is in the process of being submitted to China. Bless our sweet social worker Mallory, she is working on a Saturday night to get everything sent over to Lily. I’m sure she was thrilled when I tracked her down on Facebook earlier to ask her more paperwork questions. 🙂
Our sweet EB turned one in December and is completely blind in her right eye. I know there will be lots of questions about that and I’ll go into more specifics in another post. We would love to share her picture with you, but until we receive our PA (provisional approval) we can’t show her publicly. But I can promise you that she is a cutie and you’ll want to kiss her fat cheeks like we do!
We would also like you to know we still don’t know when we’re going to China to get her. Unfortunately. Typically, the timeline from now to travel is approximately 5-6 months. We will certainly keep everyone posted as we know more.
We cannot wait to share more about EB with you, so make sure you keep checking back for updates!
PS- If you’re wondering about the title of this post, it’s been 9 months since we started this process. Plus, I thought it would be funny to make people think I was pregnant. 🙂
One more thing, if you aren’t my friend or Alison’s (our friend who is also adopting from China) on Facebook, you will want to check out their exciting news as well. http://mixinguptheblonde.blogspot.com/2013/01/our-sweet-baby-girl.html
