We didn't even expect to meet her. We drove nearly 2.5 hours expecting to only meet with social workers. And then, while we were sitting in the waiting room, in she walked. After 18 months of waiting to be approved and being so frustrated with the system, there we were, sitting in a room full of social workers who were on our side and wanted things to work and meeting our child for the very first time. A room full of love and positivity and potential.
I can't wait to get our first official visit scheduled. And the kids can't wait to meet her. Both Blaise and Finn cried when they learned that we had seen her without them! They sobbed as they told us how much they wanted to meet her :-)
