How we celebrated !

Early Friday morning, August 14th 2009, we signed our Letter of Intent( LOI) saying yes !!!! We want to adopt Gao En Xiao ( Maggie). I slept about an hour the night before and couldn't wait to sign the papers and fax them to our agency.





Then, we cancelled school for the day and let the boys decide how we were going to celebrate getting Maggie's referral. Of course, Chuck and I were thinking Chinese food - but, the boys were thinking Pizza !!! So, we went to Shakey's Pizza and celebrated Maggie.







Then I went shopping for some little, cute, pink clothes !!



OH ! It was fun !! I got her a tiny, pink tu-tu and a little sundress for next year.
I am working on her room now and it's so fun too !!! I really had not done any shopping for our daughter prior to receiving our referral. But, now it's time !!!

Kathy, I love the fact that you guys stoped school for the day to celebrate. The picture of you in the pink part of the store brought tears to my eyes. How cute are you. We had our own celebration yesterday that we are finally DTC:)
Blessings to you my friend.
