I thought I was crazy before we were expecting our call any day! Now I really feel crazy! And people keep on calling and right before I answer the phone I think "I hope its All Gods Children". I get disappointed every time. We don't have caller id, so I wont know if its her until I pick up the phone. The call will be soon. I keep on reminding myself to enjoy this excitement.
God has the perfect day picked out just for our referral. I really wanted it to be on my birthday yesterday, but I was thinking today that the day needs to be it's own special day.
Adam and I went out tonight to look at minivans and found one that we may buy. It will be a fantastic deal with our trade in. We are borrowing it for a few days so we can have it checked out by a mechanic. The girls love it! Getting older yesterday and now buying a minivan really makes me feel old! With 3 kids a Mitsubishi Lancer really isn't gonna work! I tried to figure out how to squeeze 3 car seats in and it just doesn't really work!
Praying for the perfect peace while we are so anxiously waiting and for our minivan shopping...

No call yet, maybe next week?!?!? I dont want my stomache to have to do flips for too long!! :)
Our referral will come the day the hour the minute and the second that God intends it too. I just need to keep on remembering that! :)

So this now puts us at #3 on the boys list!!!
We are so so excited!!!! My emotions have been here and there and everywhere!!! I am so anxious for our call, but I know God has His timing. I have to wait on His timing. Can His timing be tomorrow?!?!? I cant wait to hear about our baby boy and see the pictures of this child that we have been praying for and that has been growing in our hearts. God has this child handpicked for us and right now the hardest part is not knowing. Not knowing the situation that he is in right now and not knowing what he is doing. I guess really we just don't know anything! With Maggie I will ask her what she thinks her brother is doing right now. It's fun to imagine what he is doing, sleeping, eating, playing...
ok I am ready...
So now we know who is #1 on the boys list, but we have no clue who is #2...this is going to be hard for me. But maybe it will make for a bigger surprise when we do receive our call!!!
Continue to pray for our family and the finances of this adoption. We have applied for grants and are just waiting to hear back from them.

So on the boys list we are officially ......
We are also #7 on the siblings list. We are getting so close and cant believe how fast everything is happening. We started our adoption a little over 4 months ago and we are already this close!!!! God is amazing!!!!!!
Now that Hazel is in her big girl bed in her big girl room we can really get to working on baby Z's nursery. It will be sad to paint over the pink, but we are excited to decorate for a baby boy! Oh and yes that is the first time I have said on our blog what his name starts with (the name that we are giving him). We will announce it when we have the referral!
Hopefully soon we can post some photos of his nursery finished!
