We got the call today! We got a referral for a beautiful 3 month old baby boy. I can't share much more than that until after we pass court but I can't stop looking at his picture. I just want to hold him!!!!! After lunch today I was checking the Yahoo Group and noticed that the family on the list ahead of us got their referral. I called Mark and said "we're next" and when we hung up, I jokingly said keep your phone handy it could be today. Literally 10-15 minutes later I was in my boss's office telling her and she was like it could be before the end of today and then my phone rang, I looked at it and looked at her and was like this is it! I don't think I could even describe the feeling when Terra said I have a potential referral for you. My heart was racing and I couldn't stop shaking, she tried to get Mark to conference him in and his phone didn't ring at his office so I told her I would call her back in a minute. I got Mark on the phone and then conferenced in Terra (didn't even know I could do that until that minute) and she told us the news. I told my boss when I got off the phone, I have to go I can't wait to see his pictures. I went to Mark's office and that is where we saw the most beautiful precious baby boy and he is ours (unofficially until we pass court). I can't believe this is happening, it seems so surreal. We went to Outback and had dinner to celebrate. We have waited so long for this day, praises to God. It could only happen by way of him.
Now we have to pray to pass court, we will be one of the first families with an abandoned child to go through courts since the investigation. They don't see any problems happening but as we have seen you never know. So please pray for us that we will pass court quickly so we can hold our precious baby boy and show you guys the pictures!!!!!
Stay tuned it is about to get interesting................
"Thank you God for your mercy and your grace and the way you work amazing things in our lives. Even when our faith was thin we knew that it would happen in your time. Thank you for this amazing gift you have given us, we get to be parents to this precious child. You are truly truly amazing! In your name I pray. Amen"
