Father's Name: Zachary Klipsch, Mother's Name: Tesi Klipsch

I can't say it enough...those are some of the best words in the English language. I know, because I see them. I see them ON TARIKU'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!!! Which I received in email form this morning. It was a surprise, as we were just hoping for news on a letter we needed to submit for the BC. Yet God is good, and here it is! It says it, it says we're his parents. It justifies all the love we've been feeling for 19 weeks. It's the most exciting piece of paper (save for perhaps my marriage certifiate) I've ever seen. Best of all, it has the tiniest little picture of that sweet face. Oh I'm in love!

So we will know for sure tomorrow morning when we travel. We are obviously hoping the 27th and that's when our coordinator will ask for so don't stop crossing those fingers yet!

Man, this feels good. I didn't realize how much I was holding back (holding back, you ask, this was holding back?) Until that came in the mail and I knew we weren't waiting on anything else. Now I can start lists. Lists make it real.

In other good news, Dailah has switched comfort songs. I hestitate to inform you that the ONLY song that could make her stop throwing a fit in the car used to be, "Bringing Sexy Back." Yes, I realize what that says about me, but you must admit it's a catchy tune. Anyway, I don't even know the name of the song she's switched to but it's slightly better than JT. :)
