It is really happening!

We are just one step away from being activated with the agency, and then we will start the waiting game!! The last step is making a video four profile. The agency shipped us the video equipment, and we should have it by Tuesday. We have to return it with footage within 14 days, and then they will put it together for us. After that our profile will begin being shown to birth parents! Wow!

I am at the point where I am really allowing myself to get excited on this journey, while still guarding my heart. There are times I can't believe this is really happening! My co-workers have been taking guesses on us receiving a boy or girl - most say girl. I have been looking at cribs and gender neutral nurseries. There are so many options I don't know how I will ever decide! It is surreal to allow myself to be so hopeful again. I know we still have a long road ahead, but I am trying not to think of what could go wrong. I feel like it is time for some good news for us, so hopefully we will get it sooner rather than later.

My co-workers have planned a fundraising party for us to take place in less than 2 weeks. We have been getting some really great items to raffle off, and there will also be a mystery beer bar. I just hope people show up! I really do feel that God will provide for us on this journey, one way or another. We have been so lucky to have raised over $4,000 so far. WOW! I never thought we would raise that much. We are so thankful to everyone who has so generously given.

I plan to post again once we activate, if not before. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers!
