A few days later, on February 20th, with her official referral in hand, we sat in the director's office and waited for the orphanage lawyer to pick her up from school. We were told that on the drive back she asked the lawyer if someone had come to adopt her. The lawyer replied "da" (yes). She came in wearing her school uniform and her hair fixed in a high pony tail. As soon as she saw us she lit up. They asked her if she wanted us to be her parents, and she said "DAAAAA!!!" I'll never forget this incredible moment for the rest of my life.
