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 !!!
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3
