At 8:40 AM this morning, we got the phone call we've been waiting for. We were selected out of five families to give this child a forever home. Needless to say, we were over the moon! We both had a difficult time working that day, but we managed to be somewhat productive, or at least that is our story.

Today we were presented with a birthmother/child profile for consideration. We were informed that a Hispanic woman in Texas is due to give birth to a boy on 3/18/12. The adoption costs were much more then we anticipated and we were not thrilled about the location, but we decided to step out in faith and submit our paperwork for review. After back and forth discussions with our facilitator and faxing documents to TX, we were in the running.
