.our referral.


.our referral.  As many of you know we have been anxiously waiting since August 1st for our adoption agency to make a decision on a little guy.  Yesterday afternoon they finally made a decision and we are excited to say that they placed him in our family!!!  

can't wait for this day - image source

It is amazing to both of us how God orchestrated everything.  We had no idea that we would move so quickly through this process.  We also had no idea that God was going to ask us to open our home to someone older.  We are in awe of how he is using us in His great plan and how he continues to surprise us.  Right now we are over the moon excited!  

...and thinking this will be a picture of husband and son sometime soon makes my heart leap and soar! - image source

We are asking for more prayers as we wait to go and get him, it will be a long time before that happens.  We are expecting that he will be home sometime between 9-12 months from now.  Thank you so much for the prayers already sent out for our family, including him.  .our referral.

I remember the day we got our news that the agency was placing our boys with us. Congratulations! Someone told me to hold on to some of the excitement and enthusiasm we had on our day and save it for some of the days ahead. Yay God!
