Today we have been waiting for our referral for baby Caleb for 6 months! To be honest, though I knew today was our 6 month mark, it was kind of in the back of my mind all day, because we were soooo busy packing and moving, packing more stuff and moving more stuff....you get the idea :) Then, around 4pm I checked my cell phone and I had a text message from my dear friend and fellow waiting parent, Karen Bowman. It said something like "I've not seen you online today, so I just wanted you to know that the Hammond family got their referral....you're next!" It took me a while to process what I had read....then I realized "We are now #1!!!!" AHHHHH!!!!!
So, yes, we are #1!!! Our family coordinator confirmed this today, and also said that they expect the next batch of referrals to come within the next two weeks!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!! In less than two weeks we could be seeing the face of our son! This is just amazing.
What is more amazing is just how faithful God has been to us throughout this entire process....in every way....it just amazes and humbles me. May He receive all the glory!!
Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
