BEST DAY EVER!
When people told me that there were going to be high's and lows in this adoption journey I believed them. Now I REALLY believe them.( refer to previous post ) Today a very, very fun letter came in the mail. It was our approval letter from our agency that we are OFFICIALLY approved by the state of Arizona to adopt a child. When I initially saw the letter my heart wrenched and slid into my stomach because I didn't know what it was going to say......ARE we finally approved? Or are we being rejected. I opened it up with my heart in my gut hoping for approval. When the confetti flew out of the letter I knew that it was good news. :) I screamed YAAAAAAAY! Then I cried. Tatum was in the car and wanted to know what the heck was going on and why I was crying. I said that we are approved to adopt a baby and that these were very happy tears. Then we called daddy to tell him the good news. So thats about it. It is official. We are very fit parents ready for our amazing baby and it's birth parents. They say the average wait time is 2 years......lets hope that it doesn't take that long. We are so happy today!
