yes! it's true and i am shouting it from the rooftops!
today at 1:20 pm our lives were forever changed.
today- we saw the face of our 4th child and i am in love.
joe is home packing for a big adventure, i am gathering stuff upstairs for his trip.
my phone is downstairs near him.
i really thought nothing of it since well -it just usually isn't my agency calling.
and you see lately every time i check my caller id and it wasn't them i was bummed.
but anyway, joey says... "it's CHI!" and answers it.
crazy thing was joey was home and literally we were in the same room together (our great room).
so...i'm not sure how i got downstairs but i did and our consultant asked if we were both there.
i put us on speakerphone and i started to cry. emotions folks emotions!
she told us we have a beautiful 7 month old baby girl!
i replied "Praise God!".
i know i thought but didn't let slip out the words... it's about time since tomorrow would be 15 months waiting.
she gives a few more details and we hang up.
joe and i (along with the bear) gather around the computer for our email about her and pictures.
ok, so we open up the first pic and are just amazed at her.
we open up the second and are blown away by her eyes. they are beautiful. she is beautiful!
no really, she is perfect.
i am in love.
i can not explain the feelings of adoption. you wait so long for the call, the face. then you get it and it is beyond words. it's kind of like the incredible emotions i felt with my pregnancies and births. amazing love. love at first sight. wow!
for legal reasons i can not post pics of her online until after we pass court.
prayer requests now...
pray we get a fast court date with paperwork done perfectly and pass the first time.
pray we bring her home quickly.
my heart is in ethiopia!
what a journey!
