We Weren't Expecting THIS!

Here has been the timeline of the last 2 1/2 weeks.

September 5 - We get word from our social worker that our home study is complete.

Sept 14 - I hear from a friend at church about a set of twins being born in November and the organization she is working with is looking for a family.  We decide to think about it.

Sept 20 - We decide we can't be shown for the twins, too much to take on right now.

Sept 22 - I call the organization's director to tell her we are a no go on the twins.  She asks if we are still interested in a single baby to which I say yes.  She lets me know of a baby being born in February and asks if we want shown because the family she was going to show just backed out that morning.  After talking to Scott about the details, we say yes.

Sept 24 - The expectant mom looks at our profile and PICKS US!!!!  I get to talk to her on the phone, confirm that it's a great match, and we start planning a time to meet.

We are in a whirlwind!  Totally blown away.  Can hardly believe this is happening so fast.

As long as she maintains her current adoption plan, we will be welcoming a baby boy into our family mid-February!
