Today I had the honor of being thrown a suprise baby shower by my friends! It was so much fun, and the first thing I did when I walked in the room filled with pink and heard everyone yell "surprise!" was burst into tears. :) It has been emotional for me lately, and with our latest 1600 hangup (more on that later) I was having a rotten morning. It was so kind of everyone to be so excited for our family. Annelise got so many wonderful goodies. I will have to take pictures and post them all, and a friend took pictures at the shower, too. Annelise has more bows, outfits, books, bibs, burp clothes, and two of the cutest little girl towels for after bathtime I have ever seen. And even a portable noise machine for travel to Korea - woohoo! And something really special was a gift certificate for a local photographer to take our pictures wherever we want of our family when it is complete with Annelise. I can't wait to have them taken! It was so fun, I am just so thankful for the sweet friends I have. Thanks everyone - It made my whole week brighter!
On the 1600 side I left a field blank, and yesterday got back a rejection letter from the lockbox location. BOO BOO BOO. I was not a happy camper. I fixed it and overnighted it this morning, so hopefully the delay it caused us will not be anything big. Probably a week tops. Praying our 1600 sails thru to approval now.
Adoption has so many big ups and big downs. It really is similar to being pregant, but I am thinking the highs and lows seem greater. So last night was a big down, and today was a big up with all the celebration over my baby girl. We love you Annelise, and there is a big group of family and friends that are just as excited to meet you as we are. Hang in there sweet baby, soon we will be there.
