The CALL!!!!!


Tuesday night we received the call of a life time. Well actually we missed it, and had to call back (but details sheeshmells)...
He is 2 years and 8 months old. He has the biggest brown eyes, pouty lips and adorable toddler hands. He is perfect in every way. And, exactly who we were waiting for!!!
We are over the moon excited and oh, so in love. I have waited for this day but never imagined the pure bliss that I feel right now. I had been told by those who went through this process before that at just the right time the child that was meant to be yours will enter your life- but I did not believe them until Tuesday evening.
Here are a few pictures from the evening... (courtesy of my sweetest friend in the world H and her family- seriously what would we do without you guys???)


I had no idea how the kiddos would react... yes we prepared them for this day, but kids can react funny in these types of situations. I could not have asked for better responses. Captain ran in the house to click on sweet M*'s picture on the computer and begged me to chase down his teacher in the parking lot to show her a picture yesterday. Cuddlebear is going through his drawers trying to find clothes that he can pass down to his brother and Belle told me tonight that she is going to protect her sweet M* in case he is scared (and if you knew his name and could have heard Ella say it trust me it would have melted your heart).

We are so excited and can't wait to bring our boy home!!!!!
