The next night I got an email saying our pre-approval from our social worker had made its way to Andrea and she wanted to know if we knew who we wanted to commit to. Talk about people being on the same wavelength!
We did decide and are matched with a child. Currently we are in the process of getting all our paperwork to Reece's Rainbow so that our commitment can be "official." Once it is official I will reveal who are new child is. Believe me when I say I can't wait to tell the world!
I also got a really neat surprise tonight! I was working on getting the girls through the nighttime routine when the doorbell rang. I answered it and low and behold it is the familiar face of a soon to be good friend whom I had never met before. It was Kristin (and one of her boys) who had stopped by on her way back from Kohl's. She had bought an outfit for Nadia (who she is adopting through RR) and she also bought an outfit for my cutie pie as well. This was so sweet! We - well I have already decided that our little kiddos will be best friends. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to those play dates. (Peyton and Riley are looking forward to them as well). This is all so exciting!!
Oh! One of Chris's friends had called him at work after hearing the news - we sent out letters to all the people on our Christmas card list in order to help with initial fundraising such as home study costs. He was really excited for us. Which was nice.
