REFERRAL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today was the day that I met my daughter!

My beautiful daughter who is 2 years and 4 months old.

My beautiful daughter who, although she isn't smiling in ANY of her photos, has the most lovely eyes and kissiest lips I have ever seen.

She is real, but this only seems partly-real. I've cried so much I am exhausted. I am overwhelmed!

She's my girl.

By the way... Bella did not smile in one picture that I got of her in the six months we were waiting...and she has not stopped since we got home. Don't worry, mom...she's just saving it for you.

Selam! G'day! Hello!
