On June 22nd, 2010...

I woke up, hopped in the shower, and was planning to head in to work; just like any other day. I knew a new shared list had been released the night before, but I didn't let myself dare to hope that we had been matched. J called while I was in the shower. A ran into the bathroom to tell me to get on the computer. I had A text my boss to say I would be late.

I finished the fastest shower known to man and A already had the computer on and email loading. She was waiting for me to hurry into the office. This is what we saw:
And we thought she had the most kissable little cheeks ever and the sweetest ears on the planet! :) We read through the file a dozen times while I had J on the phone. Needless to say I never did make it in to work that day. ;) We divided up the tasks of contacting IA doctors to review the file, writing up an LOI, researching Shanghai SWI, and probably a dozen other tasks I no longer remember. The bottom line was, we knew we had found our baby.

Fast forward one year and this is our sweet little girl now:

To me, the difference is UNBELIEVABLE! She has blossomed from a scared, timid little baby/toddler into a preschooler. She amazes me every day with her ready smile and affectionate nature. She loves so many things and is always ready for an adventure! I can't wait to see what her future holds.
