So, this isn't another cake alert post so YOU'RE WELCOME. This post is way better.

Last week, we received a VERY VERY VERY unexpected message from our adoption agency. A mere 4 days after receiving notification that our paperwork was done and headed to Korea, we got a referral!!!!!!
This does not happen this way. Seriously. This wasn't supposed to happen for like a year. In fact, I had to read the email about 40 times to make sure I was reading it correctly. When I called Jeff he asked me over and over if I was kidding and we were both totally 100% floored that this happened. She's, yes I said SHE, 7 months old and her name is Eun-Seo Bak. For now, anyway. We've taken to calling her "Eunie" (pronounced Yoo-nie) at home because "the baby" sounded kind of lame and it'll be a while until we can decide on a name. As you can see, she's pretty cute and I'm sure that hair will grow right in!

We're still processing all this and quite frankly my brain will probably explode once it sinks in but we SO excited and Max has learned to say "sister" (well, it sounds like "ditter" but that's okay, I know what the hell he's saying) and I'm sure he will not mind having to share ALL the attention he gets. Yeah, right! We probably have about 4-6 months of paperwork and waiting ahead of us but we're really hoping to get her home before Christmas because she'll be 1 on December 23rd. We seem to only go to Korea at Christmas but I'm not complaining!

We're SUPER STOKED about this and I'll be chronicling our journey again so check back.

YAY!! Congrats!!!

We have a Christmas Eve baby and those Christmas birthdays are equal parts awesome and difficult. Hopefully you'll get to celebrate her first birthday with her.

I'm so happy for you guys!!

Thanks everyone!

Yeah Kait, the dreaded Christmas birthday. My cousin was born on the 25th and I always felt bad for him. I'll have to learn to make sure she gets a special day. Ya know, a special day with a Christmas tree and carols and stuff.

Hi Amy...Its Kelli, your blog stalker and Sara Veety's friend that you met at playgroup. Good lord that was a lot to type. Can you just remember me from now on. Huge, huge Congrats headed your way. I saw Sara last week and asked about you and she told me the great news. Little girls are wonderful! Parker can teach Max all his tricks on how to be a great big brother!
