Today was "souper" Sunday. When we found out last weekend that we would be getting matched we set up dinner today at the in-laws called souper sunday. We had 3 different soups and other goodies. My in-laws have been bestfriends with the same couple for well over 30yrs. They are like Cart's second parents. In fact their son is hubby's best friend. So they are the "extended family" and when we all get together there are about 17 people there including kids and babies.
Anyway, we were suppose to meet at 1 but this family is known for being late. Especially hubby's best friend since they have 5 kids to get out the door. So we waited on them and at 2pm with everyone assembled we told the family.
We gave Cart's second mom a gift that I told her was perfect for her classroom. She pulled out a picture frame that said Sweet Baby on it with the following inside:
nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier
clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and
the future worth living for.

I actually got it on video on my phone to have forever She yelled when she read the date "Oh my God is that when your getting the baby" and started crying. It was wonderful and full of tears.
It is so nice to be able to talk to whoever we want now about the adoption because my goodness it was hard keeping it to ourselves.
