Our referral!!!!!

I am very excited, and happy to say that our wait to know who our little boy is, is finally over! This morning, around 8:30, we received a phone call, and were told "congratulations, you are the parents of a little boy!" He is 7 months old, and healthy as can be! They are unsure about an actual birth date, but estimate it was in May 2008. We haven't come up with the name yet but I am sure I will post later what the "official results" are! :) We are both ecstatic, and I think are in shock still that we have a face to go with our child now. My nerves still feel like they are on overload! Now we will wait to hear about a court date. Once we get a court date, and actually pass court, we should get a travel call shortly after that, and be able to go and get our baby! I am so greatful to God that we have finally received this referral, and can't even tell you how many days and nights that I have prayed, "God, please, just tell us who our baby is!" It has been especially hard lately because, there have been a lot of peers around us either, having their baby, getting pregnant, etc. I feel like the parable about the judge, and the old lady, in the bible, who keeps coming back to the judge, and finally the judge gives in because of the lady's persistence. Not sure if it was my persistence in praying or God's timing though! ;) Anyway, we are thrilled, and can't imagine it being any better! We will post more details when we figure some things out, and get a little further along.......
