NUMBER 3!!!!!

Our new number is ........................drum roll, please..............#3!!!!!
I announced that our new number is 3 tonight to my husband and 3 year old son; our son just started jumping up and down and yelling, "We are ALMOST to ONE!!!!" I have to say I felt just as excited. :D
Now we wait for our referral. The possibility of a referral call is very soon. It could be next week, or it could be next month. With the courts currently closed, the assigning new court dates are not happening; it is just hard to predict when our referral will happen.
A referral is when we will been matched with our daughter. We will receive some photos of her and any other information regarding her birth date, weight, hair color (ha,ha) and anything about her life before us.
We are so excited! It won't be long until we will finally see our daughter's face.
