B.B.E. = Big Brown Envelope!

Wegotit! Wegotit!! We GOT it!!!!

I mean, we got...them?

Yea, we got TWO Big Brown Envelopes! My sister who was visiting when the mail-lady arrived with the plain brown wrappered items said, "You're gonna have twins"!!!!

I was getting really envious of the folks in my DTC group b/c over the past few weeks loads of them have gotten their respective envelopes!! Now we have ours. And, it feels pretty darn good.

Looking through the paperwork enclosed is cool, because I know that one day we will painstakingly fill out each page in China & then walk out of the consulate with a brand spankin' new visa for our future daughter. This is a vision that I'm going to hold tightly all weekend.

**Does anyone else think it's odd that we got 2? I actually looked twice at the address wondering if one might belong to a closeby neighbor...how cool would that be?**

Gosh, what's better--being one of the first to get their BBE, or getting 2 BBEs?? You must be really special!

Connie said...

I got two also...it, unfortuantely, doesn't mean scooby snacks.

Hey, I was happy to get one!

M3 (Mary-Mia) said...

Two?! Ok, I've never heard of that before (although it looks like Connie had the same experience). How funny.

Mariah said...

Yeah!!! Maybe we will get our referrals in the same week too!!!
Have a great weekend!!

Stacy said...

YEAH!!!! That is so exciting to get that envelope.

Do you want twins? That would be so exciting!

Katie J said...

Congratulations! That's awesome news. One giant step closer.

Irena said...

Hooray! Now I know I can expect ours in about 2 months.

Mrs. D said...

Have you checked the case numbers? Are they the same? Maybe you could sell your extra case number to the highest bidder. Humunah, humunah, do I hear $200?

Hey! Are you sure you didn't get ours?
We never got one.
Nada. Nothing. Zero.

Debra Sue said...

Just a little jealous over here.
Congrats, it's one, maybe two, steps closer!

Wicked Witch said...

Wow, you are one cool woman. they must really like you!

atomic mama said...

Too cool. Don't worry, Holly - we never got ours, either... sniff.

SBird said...

Congrats! Another step closer....

Tammy said...

Congrats! I wasn't even aware of the 'brown envelope' until the month before our referral. When I called our agency they told me that not everyone gets one & some people get multiple. They said that's the way it goes. Hmmmm. Anyhoo, glad I wasn't expecting one since I would've worried that I was lost in the shuffle.

The confirmation is great - CELEBRATE!

Melissa said...

Congrats! Can I live vicariously through you? We don't get one in Illinois. Have a great weekend dreaming!

Jonni said...

Wendy,

Too cool, I hope it's twins! Congrats. :)

Kathy and Joel said...

That is so exciting!!! Any kind of mail these days is an exciting prospect, isn't it? I just love to know that we are not forgotten.
I hope you don't mind that I have listed you in my blogroll. :)

Do you really ever get too old to get excited when you get mail? That's great! Sounds like you're really on your way to mommyhood!

Tamara said...

hooray- the famous brown envelope, interesting about receiving two- maybe it is in the works for twins!!! :-)

Natalee said...

Yay for the BBE!!!

Jen said...

Congrats! The brown envelope definitely puts some reality back into the wait. Yeah!! 2 envelopes, huh? Never heard that before? Did you ask for twins :)

Laura said...
