The phone rings and I jump

We are in a very anxious time of waiting at the moment.  We are somewhere around #3 for our little boy and could truly get a call very soon.  I don’t really even know what to do with myself at the moment.  It’s very surreal to think that we may finally see our child’s face in the very near future.  We have been waiting so long it has seemed impossible at times.  Lord we are just so excited!  What do you have in store for us??

  • I’m excited for you! Isn’t hard trying to NOT be so excited sometimes??? It is for me….I get so excited sometimes at the thoughts of having our little girl home and I love looking at her sweet face in the pictures and videos but oh to have the real thing in front of me! Then, it seems like I’m always trying not to lose sight of what’s happening here…meaning that it’s all for the glory of God and that He is my true focus in life. Sometimes I just have to say out loud…”Lord, I’m sorry but I AM just so excited at the thought of being her Mom!” Praying for you guys….can’t wait to see sweet Liam’s face either!!
