The last week and a half has been an absolute roller coaster ride for us! These are a few things that have taken place:

Monday June 8th - Went to Tyson's placement party! Congrats David and Stephanie! Your family is beautiful!

Tuesday June 9th - Vicky (or adoption specialist) emailed us saying that there was a potential birthmom and asked if we were interested in her! Of course we said Heck YES!!!!!! We were extremely excited!!! Received very little information about the situation.

Thursday June 11th - Received another email from Vicky saying that the birthmom wanted to meet us sometime following week and she gave us a little bit more information about the birthmom/birthfather.

The weekend went by and we heard nothing! Monday and Tuesday, has come and gone and we still do not know when we will be meeting the birthmom. This has been a very hard time for us, we know it will happen it is just hard not hearing anything back. Maybe today is the day??? I am suppose to be going out of town on Thursday, but it looks like I might be placing that on hold just in case the birthmom wants to meet with us Friday!

I also want to say that our prayers are with Jeremy and Kelly, they received an email saying that they had a birthmom that wanted to meet with them next month! God is Awesome!

God's Plan is the Best Plan!

Today I was sitting here trying to find blogs about people that had adopted when I came across this blog where a couple was on their second adoption. I love reading about people’s stories because I often wonder about how our adoption story will play out. I can’t even imagine what emotions we will be going through. I wonder where we will be when we get “the call”. I wonder if we will meet the birthparents or not meet them. I wonder where our baby will be born…I could go on and on. Anyway, as I was reading her blog when I came across something she said that really helped me. She said, “I needed to be a bit uncomfortable so I would fully rely on him. God’s plan might not seem right at the time, but his plan is always PERFECT.” It hit me…God is making me uncomfortable because He wants me to lean on Him to help me get through this time. I know I cannot make it through this journey, through this life without Him. So for now, I am going to try (I might not be saying this in a few months, ha) to quit being so anxious, so antsy, and just let God’s plan for us happen! God is in control so I need to stop trying to be in control! I can plan and plan, but it is most likely not going to go my way it is going to go His way - the best way! So I am going to prepare for this baby as much as possible and sit back and watch God do his thing! I love Him!

The Waiting Game

Josh and I got some awesome news yesterday! Our agency emailed us to let us know that they can now show us to expecting parents! I cannot tell you how great it feels to finally be waiting! I thought this day would never come! Josh and I went out to eat last night to celebrate at Texas Roadhouse! If you know know I LOVE that place!

A few days ago Josh was saying how it would be nice if we received a baby by October - November and I thought he was crazy I would like one NOW!! Haha...but yesterday he said, "Ok so I thought I wanted to wait, but I think I would like one now too!" He is so cute! I love him so much! He is going to a great Daddy!

So now we play the waiting game! The only person that knows when we will have our baby is God and I know He has an awesome plan for our future. I can't wait to see what He has in store for us! Please just keep praying for our birth mom/birth family during such a tough time and also pray that our baby is healthy! I will keep you posted!
