Thank you.

Meeting is in less than two weeks from matching panel. They are hurrying up as the process has been quite long, I think.

Italian - 4 years ago today -

Such a long journey you've been on, an I'm so pleased after years of talking to you on the boards, that I'm here to see your dreams coming true and you becoming a family of 4. I really am so so delighted smile

Lilka how ever did you find that. How amazing! Thank you.

MyFeetAreCold Thu 01-May-14 22:10:42

Yes, no more newbie thread for Italian. We need an adoptoraptor thread -- seems like lots of the newbies are graduating this week!

I have visions of throwing my mortar board in the air and getting pissed on champagne, but I don't think it will be quite like that!

MyFeetAreCold Thu 01-May-14 22:18:03

Get pissed on something cheap - they're expensive little so and sos!
