Court Approval!

We PASSED court!!

We have 7 children!

They have our last name!

They are no longer orphans!

We are theirs and they are ours!

It's just amazing.

We officially passed on June 1st, we just found out today!
Yesterday was our 15th wedding anniversary.

We had been waiting on the info about our court date 
since Tuesday at the opening of business Pacific time...
but there was no news.
I called the agency...
they still had no news.
There is a problem sometimes
getting news from ET to the USA in
a timely manner.
Sometimes it's a power outage,
sometimes it's no internet,
sometimes its whatever.

But we waited.
Tuesday... no news.
Wednesday... no news.
Thursday... no news.
But then today...
as we were driving back from our
anniversary get-away in Atlanta...
my phone went
And there it was!

THE email.

"Court Approval!"

I nearly crashed the car.

Hubby was on a business call and I 
excitedly passed him my phone, 
pleading (somewhat) silently with him to read it!!!

Once he FINALLY got off of the phone
 (which was probably 90 seconds, but FELT like 10 minutes)
he opened the message.

And so, at 11:27am today...
we found out we are the parents to 7 beautiful children!
