Zero... We're IN!

This morning we received wonderful news!  We were welcomed into the agency book!  I just returned from the post office after sending our profiles in to the agency.  We are SO incredibly excited! (As I am sure you can imagine!) I also just want to reiterate how thankful I am to be on this journey.  It definitely hasn't been the easiest journey, and it definitely has tried my patience at times (and it isn't even over yet), but I am truly thankful to be where I am today, and I wouldn't change a thing!  God's timing and His ways are perfect.

We have been blessed by so many people and have been witnesses of God's power and have seen prayers being answered.  Anonomous donors, gifts and words of encouragement from friends and family, phone calls out of the blue saying 'they are there to help in any way,' garage sale fundraising, receiving a grant from a great organization, countless prayers, sharing prayer requests, and shared excitement over this baby.  I received a text from my sister this morning that said, "The Lord has His hand on ALL of it!"  It's true!  He really does!  I love being a witness to all of His marvelous works, and I am happy that we can share it with you all.  Thank you to everyone for your love and support!

Some Pictures

I noticed my blog is looking very wordy with a big lack of photos!  My camera is kind-of on the fritz, but I have managed to take some pictures recently.

The newest member of our family arrived in January.  My brother and his wife welcomed their third, adorable son. Meet Wesley..

We've really been enjoying the warmer weather and we've been utilizing our deck and patio set a lot!
Dan and I were out and about Monday, and the sky looked CRAZY.  I was so happy I had my camera with me!

I've got to be better about taking pictures!  I always forget, but I am so happy when I manage to capture moments in pictures.

Well, no other updates, just some random pictures!

We are now the first family on the waiting list, meaning the next email I receive will tell us we are going into the book!  We are so excited!  (and honestly, a little nervous!)  The list has continued to move very quickly, which means the agency is placing a lot of babies in homes.  Please continue to pray for Dan and me during this time!  We're so excited to continue on this journey of adoption...
