The Paper Baby

I have dreamed of this day for 7 months. The day I could tell you that we mailed off our entire dossier, otherwise known as the paper baby, to our adoption agency. Here's how it went down:

These are the contents of our dossier spread out on the bed. This is minus the homestudy and another form, which are already at the agency:
This is the paper baby asleep in the crib:
This is the paper baby riding to the post office. I know, no car seat, but that would be completely ridiculous. ;)
This is me and the paper baby outside of the post office.
It should be in Virginia on Wednesday. Please pray that the paper baby has a safe trip so our real babies can come home soon!
