It's A Girl!!!

After 1 year, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 5 days of officially waiting, we introduce Kathryn Julia YiSeul! Born March 21, 2009; she is 5 months, one week and 3 days old! She weighed in at 6.4 lbs! She is very healthy - an oh so cute! I am in love already! In May she was up to 11.6 lbs and 22.3 in.

I was getting ready to meet my friends for brunch when the call came in. My mom answered the phone and Brian Jr. yelled upstairs for me to pick up. I was not even thinking referral call because for some reason I thought that it was Sunday! My social worker was on the other line and immediately said that she had good news for me! I started crying and had to make her repeat everything all over again. I heard her the first time, the words just didn't compute!

I was at my friend Heather's when I got the e-mail! I was almost afraid to click on the attachment with the photo. I was so sure this was a dream and her photo would not be there! Crazy, I know!

Back in April and May I jumped whenever the phone rang. And this month, I have not even been thinking about the call coming for another few months! I was so-o-o surprised!

We hope to travel in about 3-4 months. I really, really hope she is home for Christmas! Also, these are newborn photos, we should be getting updated ones soon!

Hi Kim, I have been a lurker for sometime. I found your blog in a random google search about the Eagles. I grew up near Atlantic City and it seems you live near Cherry Hill or there abouts. Anyway I wanted to delurk and offer my major congratulations on your referral - that it just the most wonderful news in the world. Congrats to your family and I enjoy reading your blog, your boys are adorable and so is your little girl!
