Referral packet!!!!! YEAH!!

Guess what came today!!!! OUR REFERRAL PACKET!!!!
Mike told me the UPS lady was leaving the packet at the door and I yelled "WAIT"....I then asked if I could take her picture. She looked at me a little funny and then I said "you just delivered our baby" She said "you can take my picture if I can see a picture of your baby"....I happily agreed. I'm pretty proud of our baby, I like to tell people all about her.

After the packet came I decided to hit a couple of garage sales to get some
little pink clothes for our sweet baby!!

I can't wait for the day I can dress our sweet little princess!!!
I am longing to hold, kiss, rock and smell her!!!

Today was a wonderful day!!!
(even though both of our children are sick)
Our daughter has been sick since Monday and has hardly left "her" rocking chair in our family room. Our son wheezes (like clockwork) every two months. He is having one of his wheezing spells and needs breathing treatments lots.
Why was it such a wonderful day???
We saw some of the most beautiful pictures we have ever seen!!
My cell phone rang at 11:09 while I was at the grocery store.
Our case manager Julie said they have a baby for us!!!!
Needless to say I left the store empty handed crying and rushing to get home to the computer.
(check out our sons face on the picture above..he's so funny)
My husband was behind the camera

My son thought I was sad so he had to give me a kiss! How sweet is he!

Here I am taking another look...this happened many many times during the day!!
We are so happy!!! Please pray with us that we make it through courts before Aug.!! We really want to bring our baby home soon!!! My heart is already hurting just thinking that there is a chance we might have to wait until Thanksgiving.
It has been a long day..I need to go to bed. I will update more very soon!!!

Our Ticker Baby

So now the baby on my timeline ticker is almost off the "timeline" (I can't get it to fit). Now I'm wondering if we will have a referral before our "ticker baby" disappears???

I am obsessed!!!

OK, so I email the very best investigative blogger (Amy) today to see how accurate she thought our numbers were.
Here is what she had to say....
"I think you are #3 girl, #3 boy, but would have to be #4 overall.
If you are #3 overall, you would be #2 on either the boy or the girl's list."
(She's not sure how accurate her thoughts are)
So she thinks that there is a chance that we are #2 on the girl list and #3 on the boy list. I do know that there is a family ahead of us that is requesting a toddler boy. That means we could be #2 for an infant girl and even though we are #3 on the boy list, we are second in line for an infant!!!!! Even if we are #4 overall, having a family in front of us that is requesting a toddler makes us third in line overall for an infant. Oh My Word!!!! We are so close on EVERY list!!!
Will we get a referral for a girl??????boy????siblings?????
Can you tell what's been on my mind tonight?????


We just received our bi-weekly update from our agency!! There have been some referrals in the past two weeks.
Siblings #1
Boy #3
Girl #3
Overall #3 Maybe #4
We could be wrong about this, but from my calculations this is where we should be at.
Amy and Autumn let me know what you think?????
We are so EXCITED!!!!!!

I want to hear "Baby Love"

I really want my phone to ring today!!!
For some reason, today has been a day, that I am really longing for our child/children!
I have my cell phone set to play "Baby Love" when our agency calls....
I so badly want to hear that song right now!!

We need a baby at our house!

I think our son is ready for a little brother or sister.
He LOVES babies!
If he hears a baby cry, he wants to hold or kiss the baby to make them better.
We had some friends over and they brought their baby.
Our son just loved him to pieces.
He kept kissing him over and over. It was the cutest thing!!

Seriously, how cute is this!!

Some fun with the kids!

I feel like it has been a long time since I posted pictures of our children.
Our daughter is 5 and our son is almost 2.
They are a blast!!!

We have waited a LONG time, but
Summer has finally come!!!
Sunday was the first day (it was actually warm out)
the kids could run through the sprinkler.

Today my mom and I took my daughter and niece
to the "Bird House" (a pet shop for birds).
The workers were so nice.
They let the girls hold a bird and had a bird talk to them.
