The day before Thanksgiving a blog friend got a referral. I cannot begin to express how happy I am for her.
In my year and a half of active blogging I have heard and congratulated many fellow bloggers on their referrals. For some reason this feels different. Perhaps it is because we are adopting from the same country or I have been in contact with her through her process. Or perhaps it is because I know that it will be us one day. When friends would announce their pregnancies it always stung a bit. That was a game with not guarantee. Adoption has other uncertainties, but there will most likely be a baby at the end for us.
Please join me in congratulation Erin on her new son!
