The Call....

Well, it finally happened. Our family is about to change. Friday morning we were three, and by Friday evening we were seven. Yes, you read that correctly...seven. We couldn't be more excited, overwhelmed, nervous, overwhelmed, grateful, and did I mention...overwhelmed?!? :) (Thank God we already have a van!)

On Friday at nearly 4pm, the house line rang. We hardly ever answer that line, but I was waiting for a call from our pediatrician. Figuring she dialed our home number in error, I went inside to answer.

One the other end of the line was the caseworker for four children who were the subjects of a matching meeting that day. She called to tell us that we were chosen as the forever family for these four precious children - three girls and a boy. I had to ask her to repeat herself because I was afraid I didn't hear her correctly.

There's not much else to tell at this point except to ask for your prayers. We will spend the next month or two traveling for visits and transitioning our new children into our home. In addition to having to construct a wall to divide one of our upstairs bedrooms into two, we will have to purchase furniture and other items, and even more importantly, will have to make all sorts of decisions including schooling ones as well as holiday ones, etc. So, the best thing all of you can do for us is to pray and encourage us.

We couldn't be more excited to see what God has in store for our ever growing family. He has truly heard the cry of my heart and is blessing us beyond our wildest dreams.
