It's Official!

We found out today that we officially made the waitlist. Our dossier is complete and it was accepted with our agency. Our case worker called today to give us the news and to let us know our first waitlist numbers. Our number is 97 for a girl! I know it is a big number, but I am so excited to watch it go down every month knowing that families and children are being united.
I decided a while back that when we found out our numbers I would make a cake and write our number in icing. We used a cake to tell our families about our first pregnancy, so I thought it would be special. We also make cakes for everything around here, including stuffed animal birthdays, so it seemed appropriate. Well, today is a crazy day and I do not have time to bake a cake, so I went by the store on my way home. They had one cookie cake left, that was meant for someone else and said, "Best Wishes." Noone came to get it, so they said I could have it. The sweet lady covered over "Best Wishes" with our number.
We also have a siblings number, 41. I have never mentioned on here before that we are open to siblings. It was actually a last minute decision. There is a small chance that we could receive sibling girls (0-24 months). So, there is a chance that Mia Grace could actually be Mia and Grace.
We are thrilled to be waiting for our girl/girls!
