We were receiving our referral from our agency. I posted this:
We got a REFERRAL!!!!! Friday started out like any other day. I emailed our coordinator in the morning and a few minutes later we got the 'nothing new' email that I dread getting. I had put the adoption out of my mind (as if that's possible) and was working hard when the receptionist at work started buzzing my office looking for me. Thank goodness she kept on looking for me because I was in the backroom. When she told me I had a phone call from CHI I just assumed another document was needed. We went through our normal pleasantrys and then she says "I have some news for you," and that was it. I was bouncing in my chair and squeaking and some of the ladies I work with ran in and all I could do was shake my head "YES" and they knew. It was an amazing feeling. I had to call Troy who was driving home from work and he was so excited I was worried he would run off the road. I called my mom and Troy called his and then his mom called me and it was wonderful.We spent the weekend shopping and cleaning out his bedroom, sorting thorugh all the clothes my sister in law has passed to us (thank you!) and looking at bedding and just anything we could put our hands on we looked at!! We should hear travel dates tomorrow or Wednesday!! I can't go wait to meet our little man. My hands are still shaking and I can't get anything done and I'm all over the place, but you know what? I think I'm allowed!!God is so good!
I still can't believe we were looking at his picture, telling our family and getting ready for the trip(s) of a lifetime one year ago. My how time flies!!
In other news Daniel and I went to his Valentine party at school and had a great time. He made a showbox and it was filled full of cards and candy. He also made me a heart flower arrngement and a flower pot with candy in it. He was so sweet when the teachers helped him give them to me. I couldn't help but take a photo!!
