Nothing new to report. Little miss is doing great and we fall more in love daily. Since our adoption is an independent/relative adoption everything is done by the state, which basically means no one cares and it will get done someday. I called yesterday to talk to them just to see if they have entered our paperwork we filed on 11/16 and the rude lady told me they would get to it when they could. The clerk was out and they only have one and frankly she didn't know when she would be back. "She could be out on leave or on vacation. I don't know when she will be back ma'am." That's what she told me after I asked if I could speak to her. Lame! So this is just another test Heavenly Father has given me, to be patient and realize I am still not in control and I need to have faith. So it looks like TPR will be sign when the dumb clerk gets back and decides she would like to enter our info. Luckily I have an amazing little girl to keep me distracted and I don't have a lot of time to worry about all of that. And honestly, everyday she is with us she feels more like ours. I told DH a few days ago that I literally feel like I gave birth to her. I don't know how some people can say adopted kids are "never really yours" because I can't imagine this feeling any different if she came from my womb. My prayer is that everything goes smoothly and she will be ours legally before we know it.


  1. I've been thinking about you and was wondering how you were doing. It sounds like you are eating up that little baby girl! Enjoy every precious moment, you deserve it. Everything else will fall into place.

    BTW, I have a baby gift for you. I'm hoping to make it to the post office today or early next week.

    Congrats again! Welcome to motherhood. :)

    1. Hannah you are just the sweetest! You're right, everything will fall into place and enjoying my precious angel is all I need to worry about right now.

  2. Are you allowed to post pictures of her? I'd love to see a picture of your sweet baby! I'm so glad it's going well. As hard as it is, don't worry about the legality of it and don't let those rude folks steal your joy. I'll be praying for God to move paperwork quickly for you all. So happy for you and love that you feel she's literally a part of you already. Isn't it wonderful?! I have a friend who's adopted (He's in his 30's and he used to run around and tell kids in grade school that his mom CHOSE him and their mom's were stuck with them ;) Can't wait for a sassy attitude from mine about it :) So fun!

  3. Yay! Love it! Glad everything is going so well!!! Amazing how it all fell into place!

  4. They really are "yours" from the moment you lay eyes on them! It's amazing how much love you can have for a tiny being you've never met before - and that love just keeps growing and growing :).

  5. Congratulations, so happy to hear that baby girl is doing well and you guys are enjoying your time together as a family!
