It's official! We got the referral call yesterday.<br><br>
She was born early in September, so she's six months old. She's chubby as can be, with beautiful bright eyes and the sweetest expression. Her foster mom says she loves to be held, and sleeps well at night. She must have a healthy appetite, because her cheeks are something to behold. We are completely smitten.<br><br>
Her Korean name means River, Grace, Beautiful. River of grace and beauty, Beautiful river of grace, Graceful beautiful river. We just love her name.<br><br>
We haven't made up our minds yet, but there seems to be a name that feels right. After the past year of sadness, the long months of cold, and the year of such uncertain waiting, she feels like a ray of sunlight. Everything that is warm, and joyful, and bright. We got her referral on a beautiful sunny day, and my pictures of the day she was born (I took pictures of James and our boys that day) show a bright blue sky and warm, warm light. The dream and hope of her carried us through many dark days of missing James, and here she is, all brightness and joy.<br><br>
We don't know for sure what her name will be, but we're leaning toward Ellena. Beautiful sun and graceful river. The image is so lovely, so serene, so full of hope and promise.<br><br>
You all have been such good friends and such amazing support. On this day I am very, very thankful for many things--and two of them are this forum, and all of you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
