Blessings seem to come in spurts.... UPDATED

Today is only half over and already.....

Our wonderful social worker called. She said to get ready because travel calls are coming MUCH faster than anticipated. The families that were #2 and #3 ahead of us have already gotten their calls to come get their babies! She thinks we should hear something within the next 4 weeks. 4 weeks!!?? So much to do.......

She also got a little teary when she told me that she does many adoptions. Some are just normal adoptions and some she can see God's hand working throughout the whole process. She said we were one of those. We KNOW God's hand has guided and provided us through this journey.

We got a reciept from USCIS which means they are processing Ollie's visa. That's great news.

We sold our old t.v. I'm so excited to get it out of here.

Lucy is WANTING to use the potty. She thinks she's pretty big stuff.

I'm sure I'll have more great things to share before the day is over!

Hooray! It is so amazing to watch God work through this process. I can't wait for you to bring Ollie home! If Ollie's room isn't ready I'm with Cindy on that offer to help with anything. Just give me a call!

The Christmas card of your 3 children was absolutely precious. I love it!

Praise The Lord! Our prayers are being answered. I am so happy for you. I really, really do understand what it is like to wait for your baby who is in someone else's care. It is not easy. But God's grace is sufficient.
