My premature purchase is SO worth it!!!!!!

It finally happened--
My adoption agency called yesterday with my REFERRAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES--that is right, I now have a little girl that I will be going to meet in person.
I can't officially share any info right now so the picture, name, age, and all will have to wait.
I am walking on air but trying to act normal since I don't want to share it at work until I have more details .
It is so exciting and scary all at the same time.

Most likely it wil be a month or two before I can go meet her on my first trip which will be about a week long.
Then I will have to come home and wait for the Russian courts to process her adoption--could be 2-4 months after the first trip. Then I return for about a month before I can finally bring her home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It will probably 4-6 months before she is home.
Wish I could share more but all I can tell you is that she is so cute.....I can't wait.

Long term I am overwhelmed at the thought of being her mother and meeting all her needs but my short term fear is coming up with all the money I need--it has gotten to be so much but some how it will work out--whatever it takes it is so worth it.

It is just so surreal. I am going to be a Mom--I will have a daughter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I now refer to my diaper bag as my lucky bag.

Oh my gosh, Mary!!! I saw your status on FB and rushed to check your blog. I am beyond excited for you!!! FANTASTIC news! I'm here if you ever need to talk, cry, shop, drink wine...whatever! (I did it all while waiting for my Sophia to come home, so can relate to the ranges of emotion!) CONGRATULATIONS!

Oh Mary how thrilling!! It's been a while since I checked in on your blog and I couldn't believe what I was reading!! I'm sure she's wonderful since she's your daughter and you'll be a great mom so try to put those fears to rest. It is really strange how it all just comes together and feels natural. So try to slow your heart rate down a little and go celebrate - buy some cute girl clothes!!! They are the best stress reliever. And I should know with my fashion princess Lexie!

Congratulations again!
