Less then 10 days to go!

It was officially 1 year on August 10th that we began this adoption process and chose Sh Yu. It seemed like it would take forever. The mass amounts of paperwork were almost overwhelming at times. Everytime we felt like we were done with paperwork we recieved another packet of mass amounts of work lol. It was like riding a rollercoaster and not knowing was was over the next hill. But here we are, 10 days away from the getting off the ride and starting the real journey. Getting our little girl! It is so hard to put into words how this feels. Happiness doesnt even come close. It is such a wonderful feeling to know we are adding another member to our family. I feel so blessed to have the wonderful adult children I have because I know they will grow to love her and she will grow to love them. This is not a new beginning its a continuation of the beauiful family i began 34 years ago. I can't wait until she meets her brothers and sisters. They will each be a gift to her as she will be to them. Shi Yu is about to become Izbella. We are about to become a family of 7!
