We're OUT! OUT! OUT!!!!!

Did you hear the scream?

Did you feel the earth shake?

That was me...jumping up and down and whooping! :-D

We got the email yesterday, April 14th! Our agency coordinator is down in Guatemala right now. She went with our facilitator to PGN to check on our file. Low and behold, it was waiting for them at the OUT window! She saw the signature with her own eyes! It's really true!

Legally, Cupcake is ours! That feels SO GOOD!

From here on out, we're just working to get her home.

The next step is to get her a new birth certificate with our names as parents. It looks like we'll hit a slight delay (a couple of weeks) with that, since her hometown recently changed over to a new system. What used to take 1-2 days now seems to be taking 20-30. But that's okay, because there's a light at the end of this tunnel. :-)

The last 4 weeks have been incredibly stressful - not knowing why they were holding on to our file and not being able to get any information. But now we're smiling, our hearts are light, and we have been refreshed. Ahhhh...

Blessings to you,

Yes! that is quite a long labor, finally she is out...baby's coming out from the heart is really a long labor but rewarding.. don't worry, birth certificate will follow soon.
