IN SHOCK!!!!!!!!

There are really no other words to completely describe what our family is feeling....we are in absolute shock and excited beyond words!!!

God has decided to bless us with a precious baby girl...YES...we are going to have a new daughter.  We received a phone call from our agency a few days ago regarding a domestic situation that they felt we'd be a good match for...at this time I won't go into any of the detail but baby girl is due in 13 days. We just got home from meeting the precious birthmother and she has chosen our family...she told us to hurry up and pick a name :)  I even got the amazing privilege of feeling our girl move several times!! Our meeting was so wonderful and so comfortable.  We are so thankful for the time we had with her today!!!

We asking for your prayers...that the Lord would be preparing us for our new girl...a newborn...I still can't believe it!!!  That the Lord would continue to comfort this precious bmama as she prepares to make the most difficult choice ever!

Prayers for financial provision would be a blessing, too!  The costs for the adoption will be around $14,500 with $2,500 being an IMMEDIATE need.  Our agency has discounted it as much as possible but we will still have to pay the fees asap.  I am putting a chip-in on the right hand side of the our blog if you feel led to donate. Wow...I can't believe this...I will be honest...the thought of trying to fundraise again is very daunting but I know the amazing blessing of the journey, too.  Funny thing is we need $14,500 in less than 2 weeks..ahhh!!!

We have a baby girl on the way...I can't believe it!!!! Thank you, Lord for this amazing surprise!!!

Oh my goodness my heart was just pounding when I read that! Unbelievable! God is sooo good!

I was telling my husband that I have no vision for my family beyond bringing Dalton home, I think from here on out its just loads of surprises and we have no idea where He will take us. The more the merrier!

Blessings upon your family as you fund-raise and adjust!
