Pure Magic!

HojaWaka--Designed by God or Creation of God

It was meant to be. He was born on March 31, 2006--The day before Our wedding anniversary. How perfect is that. He was 20 days old when received on April 19th. This is too perfect to not be fate. He was meant to be our son.
We could still not accept the referrall--yeah right. I am in love with him. He is my son. I had this feeling of already knowing him when I saw the picture. It was if I had already seen him. Wow. I know that sounds weird but he is ingrained in my mind, heart, and soul. There is no way I could not take him as my son. Needless to say my hubby is escatic. He can barely contain himself. He really wanted a son. I really wanted him to have a son and I wanted one as well. This is the first grandchild for my parents and the first nephew for my brothers. Everyone is ecstatic and happy for us. He will be so loved. He is already so loved. Accepting the referral is just a formality. I will have the medical info checked out by the international adoption clinic here, but I don't know that I will wait for the info to accept. I can't imagine they would tell me something that would change my mind.
Now the hard part. The name. We will keep his given name as his middle name as whomever gave it to him really cared for him--whether it was his birthmother, or the woman who took him in and cared for him for his first 20days of life. It is important to keep that name. It means something to me and it will to him someday as well. I can't wrap my mind around this yet. I am in a state of euphoria. I haven't had the emotional breakdown. I think that will happen when I see him in person and hold him the first time. Wow. I am a MOTHER. What a great gift for Mother's Day.
