BIG NEWS!!!!!!

Hi Friends!

We are so so so excited to announce that we have been matched! A birth mom has picked us!!! Last night as I was driving home from school, I got a call from our private adoption agency. Our case worker explained that a birth mom has picked us! She gave us some info and sat up a time for us to speak with her. This morning we got to speak to her!!! She is so sweet! I love her already!
She is due on May 6th so it is coming up so soon! The baby is full African American and we already love her so much!
We are kind of thinking of the name Sophie Anne....What do you think?
The plan is when we find out she goes into labor, we are going to catch a plane to Kansas so we can be in the hospital with her.
Well, I think thats all for now!
Love you!
Emily and Dan
