Referral


We FINALLY got our paperwork!!  YAY!
We get to finally commit on paper that we want to have Little E as our son.    How exciting is that?!
We are working to get our bag of goodies for him to send over.  They get a small bag, with a t-shirt that announces they have a family, a picture album, a camera and anything else little that we can fit into a gallon sized plastic bag.  It's SO exciting to know in a very short time he will know that he has a new family that will love him and take care of him and tuck him in at night.
It's so funny how this adoption makes me love N in such a different light.  I feel a deeper connection with him as we await the arrival of his brother.  I also feel a deeper connection with E, than I think I did with N.  In the very beginning.  There was such a feeling of unknown with N.  We had no idea what he was like, or what to expect.  And this time we have so much information and insight into little E.  And we have such an appreciation for what it's like to bond, and attach, and grow and blend.  
I look at my Z and S and feel the same way.  I have always told them that we were so blessed by the 2 of them that when God said adopt, we knew we would be blessed again.   And we have been!!!
