Congratulations! I'm a friend of Jessica's and have been following your adventure very closely through Jessica. I was absolutely thrilled to see her post come through to my inbox with the great news. I wanted to stop by and personally congratulate you and your family. I commented on her blog that I was afraid to look at your blog because you would have pictures up and I would start balling like a baby...all in happiness of course. Ayana is absolutely stunning and those eyes of hers just melts your heart. I'm excited to keep following your adventure and my thoughts will always be with you. Congratulations again...you deserve it!

~Laura~ said...

I just blogged about it but no real news today. They didn't issue an opinion on any Gladney cases today and told them to come back tomorrow to decide where we go from here. UGH. Her birthfather did relinquish rights today so thats one step down.

Lisa and David said...

Amber,
She us stunning. How excited are you that you passed. Wow! I've been so busy now that Tigist is home. I have so little time to keep up with my favorite blogs or post. I'll have to catch up with yours and see how you all are doing.
Hugs, Happy for you all!
