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.

Our miracle was born at 2:43 pm on 11/14/12. Weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz, 20 inches long. She is perfection and I have never been so in love. TPR have yet to be signed, so legally she isn't ours... yet. But she feels like ours. Hoping and praying things run smoothly and she will be ours in every way before we know it! Pictures and name to follow. Love to all who have followed our amazing journey! This is not the end, only the beginning.
