{Busy Weekend}

I can't believe I have no photos to share you with -- this gives you a glimpse of just how busy we have been.  We had another amazing weekend with our new little girl.  We picked her up on Friday morning and then was able to attend our adoption agency Christmas party and show off our new little one!  We all had a great time hearing of other beautiful adoption stories, it was pretty cool to see all the different families with all kinds of children each with different stories.

On Sunday my family had a progressive dinner, each different family had a different course at each different house.  We had a great time and it was so special to see my family fully embrace Angela as their own.  She totally felt the love because she just soaked up all the different laps to sit on and all the kisses and touches!

Friday is her permanent placement into our home -- I can't even believe how fast these weeks have gone by. It seems like just yesterday we were down in Philadelphia at DHS interviewing, and on the edge of our seats waiting to hear if Angela would be ours!  I feel like she already is fully ours -- it's like she is just having a three day sleep over at the foster home.  I know the transition was necessary for all parties involved -- but it has been so difficult having to say good bye again and again.

The winter bugs have caught up with our family, so we are praying we can all feel better by Friday and have a fresh healthy start to our new life!

So excited to start this new chapter!
