False Alarm

Our Family! Today the phone rang, Terry saw on the Caller ID that it was our social worker for the adoption with Holt. His heart skipped a beat thinking it may be a referral. (It was fun to get excited like that ) Turns out she was just checking in with us, and letting us know all is on track. Should have a referral in January. I guess we will both be on call and waiting for the phone to ring. I can't imagine how exciting it will be that whole month for our family! They just brought two babies here, and one was a boy and one a girl. All of our paper work and imigration has been done, so there should be no delays with the travel as we have heard with other families. This is great news. It would be a dream come true to hold that baby on stage at our spring show. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. So much to be Thanksful For ...Thank you God for guiding us and carrying us through this process! Thank you to those of you who have shown us such continued support and encouragement. We are thankful for you! We know that this Thanksgiving and Christmas our baby is in the arms of it's foster family. Can't wait till we are the ones holding our little one!! Photo above is my Grandmas 80th Birthday! She is so excited about our baby, and is our number one cheerleader!!

Snow BLizzard

Our update this month from Holt has not shown much progress. We were hoping for a referral before Christmas. But that was a little wishful thinking. Oh well I can dream right? I never imagined in my wildest dreams that this process would be so long. Some days it seems as if we have been waiting forever. But we also know that God has the perfect time. We can't wait to meet our little one and to introduce her/him to Bay and Amanda! They are excited and pretty anxious as well. We may try to get in a vacation sometime this winter. Someplace warm would be great. The family time would be incredible for us. Today we had a snow day, the town has stopped with the November Blizzard. No school, and no work. I treasure days like these, home nestled in with the kids, games and cookies baking !!
