WE ARE A WAITING FAMILY AGAIN!!!! YEAH!!!!!!

I was kind of bummed yesterday when we did not hear from CHI that we were finally a waiting family. It was 2 weeks yesterday and I was so hoping we would hear something before the weekend. SO...I emailed my wonderful family and asked that they pray and guess what...

WE ARE A WAITING FAMILY!!! AND GOD IS GOOD!!!

My husband received a phone call saying he didn't have to work this morning and so we decided to go do some Christmas shopping and spend some time together. I think it helped my attitude to get out of the house!! When we got home he checked the emails while I hid presents. When I sat down next to him I saw the email and had to beg him to click on it. He really likes to mess with me. But I got goose bumps as I read where we stand on the list. We are #110 over all but in the 0-12 months age we are #38. I know that sounds like a long way off but really things seem to be moving and so we are very excited about it.

I think I can finally relax a little bit and begin working more on projects before we receive a referral. We are praying for a referral by May so that we can travel during the summer months (June or July).

SO...thanks for all of the prayers and the support. We appreciate each and every one of you more than you will ever know! Please keep praying.

Until later~
Tina

Tina I'm so happy for you guys!!!! My prediction is March 27 for the referral. 38th is nothing -- we should burn through that within a few months time. I'm so excited!
