Authentication...complete!

Our dossier went through authentication (where they added some pretty yellow ribbons- yes, now we have star stickers and ribbons on our paperwork- both of which make me feel unreasonably happy, official, and fufilled. I love paper decor. I had no idea)! We notarized some copies, and shipped it off to our placement agency (go UPS! more tracking fun!) and then from there it will move on to Ethiopia. I am so so happy (I even cried a little- but if you have spent more than 13 minutes with me, you know this is not the biggest feat). We are official! This means, in just a matter of weeks, we could have our adoption referral. Sometimes, I close my eyes and I can so clearly see my baby (sorry, the picture is still too fuzzy to tell if baby is a he or a she). The plan tonight is to have a glass of wine (or two) and just feel really really happy! Can I start buying baby stuff yet?
