Adoption Progress!

Today is an exciting day. My hubby and I are still doing all of our paperwork but our agency called today about a baby boy born today in Georgia. They were calling to see where we stood with our home study. Since the baby was born today, they were looking for families who were finished or almost finished with the home study. We are not far enough along but it was great to get the phone call! We plan to be done by the end of the month with the home study so hopefully we will get another call at that time. I am just so encouraged that they are calling! I was almost a mother today! He was 7 pounds and some ounces. I guess some might be discouraged or feel like we missed out on this chance. But I firmly believe that our child is out there and we will be ready when he or she is ready. I just feel excited that we will have a child of our own in 2008!

Just had to gush a little bit!

How exciting! I am so happy for you and your husband. Your child is out there, and will be ready to be showered with love, in God's time.

I agree, you have the right attitude and receiving calls already is definitely positive. A coworker of mine adopted and I had to remind her during the process that a postive mind is the key. Now she is a proud parent of Lila. Wishing you the Best.
