CCI emailed us our "official" referral today for the babies. Typically, when people typically receive a referral of a child from Ethiopia (from other agencies), people are generally ecstatic, because they have been waiting SO long to identify their adoptive child. However, in our case, we identified our adopted children long before receiving the referral, so our process was a little bit backwards... The babies have been "on hold" for us since CCI's visit to Ethiopia in September.
But, of course, we are thrilled to finally have the referral! It's just another step closer to havin' those babies! YAY!
By the way, today's Erin's 7th birthday. What a great present for the entire family! :)
