TODAY IS THE DAY!! PRAISE THE LORD!!
We received our referral today for the cutest little boy in the world! The call came at around 12:45 today and I still haven't quit shaking!!! Right after Zack and I had finished eating lunch, my supervisor told me there was a call for me! I never imagined it would be Terra Bailey!! I answered the phone like I usually do at work, "Hello, this is Rebecca....." The voice on the other line said, "Rebecca, this is Terra Bailey with America World." Gulp! This was the call!! We put her on speaker phone, and listened to her tell us all about our son!! He is 7 months old, and soooo cute and very healthy! He is so happy and just seems to smile all the time! After we calmed down enough to remember where we were, we were able to talk with some of the families who just returned from Ethiopia, and they said he is just the happiest little baby!! I wish I could show you his picture, but of course, because of legal reasons, we can't until we pass court, which will most likely occur in October!
I can't explain how I feel right now, all I can tell you is that we are in love! It was instantaneous! We know he was just the baby God had in mind for us, and we are so unbelievably blessed to be his mommy and daddy! I will post more later, including the pics of us right before we saw him!!!
