FINALLY.....

This is crazy. I am posting the best of news today.

We received our referral of our baby girl yesterday!!!!!!

Get this.......she is only 3 months old. She is a itty bitty little beauty. Her African name in Chaltu. We were not expecting to get a referral this batch, so we are now just deciding what her Canadian name may be. Or maybe keep it the same.....we are not sure........just totally stoked.

I don't have time to post details, I am off to the city today, and didn't get home from the farm until later last night, but will definitely give more details soon.

Even better news to top that one off, my good pal Rana and Yvan ALSO received their referral the day before us!! Our babies are already friends in the Ethiopia. The are probably roomies at the CAFAC home. This is too cool. They are going to have a neat connection in life that's for sure.

Anyhow, gotta go, but isn't this just amazing. Now you won't have to hear me go on and on and on and on.........about waiting.(for a referral that is....maybe a little talk may come about waiting to travel or something! 6-8 months or so until we would be able to go pick her up.)(I'll explain more later when I have time)

This deserves a double,

Cheers........Cheers!!
