OFFICIAL!

Five years ago today I became a mom for the first, second and third time, all in a matter of about 90 seconds. That day changed my life forever.


This morning I received the news that I will have the opportunity to become a mom for the sixth and seventh time, to two beautiful little girls waiting for me in Bulgaria! That's right folks! Today we received our official referrals, which means I should be on my way to Bulgaria in about 3 weeks!! Hallelujah! Now. . .where are those suitcases?!?



Happy Birthday Maren, Lukas and Jacob! It is such a joy and a privilege to be your mom!
(This picture just makes me laugh! I'm pretty sure Maren's wish is soon to come true. . .she will finally have sisters!)

Congratulations! I keep checking on your progress and was so sad to hear about little boy. There is a reason for everything. I need to ask you a question and I was wondering if you could email me at livinx9@hotmail.com . I have searched all your blogs for the answer and I just can't find it. If you are not too busy, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks! Marnie

Awww. It's my Ivy's 5th birthday today too. What a great day all around! Hey, just wondering about that prize I won. I sent you paypal payment but haven't heard anything about it since we've been back from Serbia. In your spare time(lol), would you mind sending me the info for the princess pic thingy I won?
Thanks and can't wait to follow your journey to Bulgaria!
Hugs,
Sarah
