We have received our referral!

We stopped in at our adoption agency this morning to drop off a form and a photo album to be sent to Taiwan as part of the initial paperwork required by the program. Our case worker took us into a room and closed the door. Since we had not yet had the opportunity to meet her in person, I thought we were just going to spend some time talking. Since our agency had not even received notification from Taiwan yet that our initial application was approved, we were just hoping for some news on that front.

Imagine our surprise when our case worker stated that she had just received our referral a short time before we arrived! She smiled and pulled four pictures of an adorable two-month-old boy out of an envelope and presented them to us. We were stunned. I think she thought we were not excited. All I can say is that we were both overwhelmed and feeling very grateful. By the time we reached our cars we were smiling, hugging, and overjoyed. It has been hard to accomplish anything this morning!

We have until Thursday to accept the referral of this child. We want to have a pediatrician check out the medical report that was sent, but we think everything looks good. Wish us luck!

Thank you everyone. I cannot explain how fortunate we feel to have negotiated the adoption process so quickly to this point. When we adopt #2 I have a feeling it won't go like this.

Good luck to all of you as well.
