It's almost official! (or "Christmas a week early for me")

This morning was a beautiful morning, because guess what I did? I met with Elizabeth's social worker and my adoption worker and signed adoption placement papers! Yay! This means that I'm officially Elizabeth's adoptive mother, and no longer her Foster Mother. It was so cool, this day has been a long time coming! Now, we just have to get a court date to make it final. That will most likely be in March. The court is pretty backed up, but March will be perfect, because my parents will be out here (from the East Coast) and hopefully my sister (from Colorado).
Oh, I also got a picture of Elizabeth's birth parents, who I haven't met. I think she looks like her birth father. I'm so glad to have these pictures for Elizabeth when she gets older.

Did I mention what a great morning I had today? Signing adoption papers for my daughter...As far as I'm concerned, there could be no better Christmas present :)
