We accepted the referral! Woo Hoo!! It is still a little surreal for both J and me. We are going to be parents!
I am totally blown away at the love that I already feel for this child. I mean, I have never met him and all I have is an incredibly out of date video, but it is as if he has been in my heart forever. I guess he has been in my heart forever because I've always wanted children. I guess that this feeling is somewhat like what a pregnant woman feels. You feel love for a child that you have never "really" seen and certainly have never held.
He was born on March 18, 2004 in Kazakhstan. He was 8.5 lbs. and 20.4 inches long.
I pray that he will be home with us very soon.
