I can't believe I'm writing this!

We believe we've found the one.

The child that was meant for our family.

Our little guy.

Our son.

Holy cow.

I can barely figure out what to say! And I'm so very sorry that my last post was about us just deciding to go the route of China Special Needs and this one is about, well, not a program or a country or a gender, but a child. A breathing, eating, sleeping, living, true person out there on the other side of the Earth. Omigosh. I can barely believe I'm writing these words!

I want to write so, so much more about him and tell you every knitty-gritty detail of how we were led to him, but I can only share so much right now because frankly there's so much red tape with this adoption stuff that it's downright ridiculous (the powers that be won't allow us to share much -- yet!). We're not 'officially matched' with him yet. That will likely happen in the very near future, but right now his file's being transferred from his agency to ours (by our request) so we can pursue him. This in and of itself is a huge triumph! (I'll explain, I'll explain!). Once we officially receive his file, we'll have a few days to have it reviewed by medical professionals. We're not overly concerned about having this done because he doesn't have a condition that depending on the report from the medical community would sway our decision to adopt him.

I know I'm rambling. I'm sorry. I'm having a hard time organizing my thoughts, but just wanted to let you know that we've found him and love him already. Every single one of us. The last two days have been awesome. I'll lay it out for you blow-by-blow as soon as I can -- maybe Friday.

We have a conference call with our social worker with Wide Horizons at 10 AM on Friday, so we'll know more after that. In fact, I'll ask her if I can post photos and the most adorable video of him! Omigosh! I just know you all are going to love him too! He's a honey. Pure and simple. And you will not believe his 'name.' C.r.a.z.y.

Gotta scoot! More soon, I promise!
