in love with a girl

Today we met our little girl, Olivia Elisabeth.  We are head over heels in love with her.

Words cannot describe the feelings that we have in our heart.  We feel so, very blessed.  How did we get so lucky.....that "B" would choose us to be the parents of this beautiful girl?

I can't stop crying.  Every time I look at her picture, and think of her soft skin.  I ache to have her in my arms again....to smell her soft scent....to hear her cooing...

The host family is absolutely wonderful.  This is their 257th baby that they have cared for!  You can tell that they love each and every one of the babies that they welcome into their home.  Olivia is completely spoiled by them.  (We asked them if they wouldn't mind adopting us!)

We did go out tonight and get a few basic necessities...bottles, Dreft, burping cloths, a Boppy, onesies, and socks.  Tomorrow we are going to pick out paint for her room, and work on painting throughout the week. Next weekend we will get our car seat, diapers, and a few other items that will get us started.  We also looked at some furniture, and will order that next weekend as well.  I would love to have the security of being able to go out and buy that stuff now, but we just want to make sure that those papers are signed.  Ugh....I just wish those papers were already signed...
