Well we've had a very big day around here! I've known since we announced that we were adopting that this day would come. Honestly, I can't believe it already has!! We have looked at several pictures, read profiles of a few that are available. It has been a little overwhelming at times, but we finally made a decision and it became official TODAY!
So, without further adieu, I'd like to introduce everyone to our new (to us) . . . .

'07 Honda Odyssey!
I can now haul all three kiddos (and their friends) comfortably. It was a little sad to say goodbye to the Accord- I've it had for 10 years and all 130,000 miles! But it was definitely getting a little cramped in there and it was time to move on. The kids are IN LOVE and having a great time climbing all over the place and discovering all the hiding places in it!
On the adoption front, I still feel like I need to wait a few more days to make any BIG reveals, but I will say that yesterday afternoon I got to hear the words "Congratulations on your match" over the phone and we are now anxiously awaiting our acceptance paperwork package to be in our mail box. This evening I got to see something really fun. For some reason, I went back to the waiting child photo listing site (don't know why I thought anything would have changed on a Saturday night). But, to my absolute delight, there was our precious little one's face with the words "I have a family" written across their little picture!! Yes, sweet one, YOU HAVE A FAMILY! And we can't wait for you to get here.
