I got a WONDERFUL surprise in the mail yesterday. Something that I wasn't expecting. (Well, I *was* expecting it, but I wasn't really on the lookout for it you know?)

What was it you ask???

Princess's brand NEW BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!!!!!!!!

With ME as her Mother and Hubby as her Father. I stared at the certificate for a long time just taking it all in. Kind of like the Final Decree of Adoption that we'd got within 2 days of the Adoption being finalized.

It was so exciting to open the envelope and realize what it was I held in my hand. The very last piece is now in place. We can now get her a new Social Security Number. We can officially enroll her in school, (just an example, she's got a few years before that yet) or in Soccer or Dance etc.

I'm so giddy over a funny little piece of paper! :-)

    How wonderful! We are hoping to adopt soon, but still trying to patiently wait for a placement.
