I'm so so so excited!!!!!!

Oh my, oh my, oh my!  I'm so so so excited!!!!!!  We just got an email from our daughter (GuanYa).  This is the first message we have gotten from her & we didn't even know if she had gotten our packages or letters!  We didn't even know if she knew she was getting adopted. 

Since last Saturday, we have not gone to bed one night before 2a.m. (and as late as 5am) trying to get pictures edited, paperwork completed, adoption "stuff"done, etc etc.  We have been past running on fumes.  We are completely human & some days I'm just like "what are we doing?  We run nonstop!  Is this all worth it?" Not referring to our daughter but just everything.  Needless to say we were dragging and getting stale.  

This letter has more than lifted our spirits!  God's timing is perfect!  If you were within a 30mile radius, you might have heard me screaming with excitement & I almost caused a flood with tears of joy.  The letter was short, but she said that she was happy & had gotten our letters.  She also was excited to hear of our enthusiasm for her being our daughter!  

I'm so proud of her!  Can you imagine being 13 years old and getting a forever family?  To know she is excited was all I needed to hear to put that extra spring in my step!  You might want to put on sunglasses tomorrow because my smile tomorrow might blind ya!   

I guess tonight's sleep schedule might be no different.  I don't think there is anyway for me to sleep now!  Just had to share!  :) 

I've not been on here in a while but I want to invite you to our photography page.  Check it our and see the talents God has blessed us with!
