Getting excited!

I am getting so excited about this adoption. There have been a flood of referrals this week, and court dates/travel is going quickly as well. This just brings me hope that my baby's "spot" is opening up at the orphanage. We are 3rd on the "list" for a baby girl. OVERJOYED. For some reason I keep get a feeling in my heart that the referral will come in March. I don't know if this is realistic or not, but I just keep hearing that. That will be one year since we started the process. I can't stop looking at the pictures of the children who will be coming home soon. It makes my heart swell. I told Andy the other night that we were 3rd and he said he is starting to get nervous....a good nervous. We have a lot of work to do to get ready for that day, but it will be worth it.

Overjoyed today...a family in our adoption group passed court today. We will have 3 families travelling right around the same time. How much fun for them. I must admit I am a little jealous. I would love to be going over there with them, but our baby girl is not ready for us to come and get her. She probably hasn't even been born. But, I keep reminding myself that in God's perfect timing. There haven't been any referrals for quite some time. Honestly that is really depressing. I really want things to start moving. There are so many orphans in the world that need a home. Let's get a move on!
