we're number two!!!!!

I'm replacing the very brief update I made here earlier with a better one now that I'm in front of a computer again.

Today we travelled to my moms house for my grandpa's 91st birthday party. We were in the car at the time I was expecting the update e-mail, but it kept getting later and later and the update never came. I spent the first half of the car ride staring at my Blackberry waiting for it to chime to let me know I had e-mail.

Finally when I had pretty much given up hope and decided that there was going to be no update today it arrived with good news! There was a referral!! YAY!!

Ive noticed that we always seem to have good referral news on days that we're traveling! I think I'm going to have to start taking a vacation every Friday. :)

I spent the second half of the car ride smiling over the comments I got to my blog post once I found out. It's fun to have people get excited for us. I read your comments as we were driving and my husband and I enjoyed every one.

So anyway, we're getting SO CLOSE!!! I know that Clarissa is out there waiting to join our family. Every day is one day closer and every day I'm more excited to meet her!
