Dossier Celebration Night!

Well, it finally happened!! We got to have our Dossier Celebration Night! I had always planned on going out to eat Mexican food on the day that we mailed our completed dossier to AGCI. Well, those plans were thwarted by an uninvited stomach bug that invaded our house! But, I was still determined to *CELEBRATE*!! 

So, last night we had our little family celebration at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants! Better late, than never! :)


Here we are outside by the fountain! All smiles because the dossier is DONE, we're on the WAITLIST, and we are all WELL! PRAISE GOD!!


Erin and I at dinner! This was our last "get together" with Drew and Erin before a certain little baby girl makes her debut!! :)


Carson and Jody...the two "main men" in my life! Love these guys so much!!

We had a great night CELEBRATING with family, food and fun! It was definitely worth the wait...just like Caroline Faith will be!! Still on "Adoption Cloud 9" here at our house! And I LOVE it!

Last night I couldn't sleep because I was so antsy! AGCI approved our homestudy yesterday. Now our county court just has to approve it before we can send it in. Sooooo ready to join you, sista!

Congratulations on being added to the waiting list!! I hope your wait is not too long. It got harded for me to wait the closer we got to the top of the waiting list. I was constantly checking my cell phone to make sure that I had it with me and that it was turned on. It was kinda ridiculous.

I am so excited for you :) That was the best feeling in the world! You are done with the hard part :) :)... until you see your child's face, but can't get him/her right away. I'm starting to question if the earth started actually spinning slower ;)
