!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She picked us! Just got the call a little while ago and proceeded to have the most awkward speaker phone conversation ever with the birthmother and the girls at the agency! Amidst tears and laughter I tried to express our excitement...and then call Jordan and blubber out something resembling good news. I am still a little in shock and disbelief!

So for some details I have been holding back...

We will be parents sooner than we could have ever imagined! Birthmother, who I will call T, is due on the 26th of this month with a little boy! We are so happy that our crib and changer made it in this week. Jordan will be speedily putting it together I'm sure. AHHHH! I don't even have one diaper or onsie! I know we will figure it all out. Back to details though...T lives REALLY close to us and we know that it is not a coincidence. She is eager to be a part of our family, and we are excited to get to know her more in the next couple of weeks. Again, thank you for all the prayers and notes of encouragement. Jordan and I have felt so loved this last week, and really so appreciative of the friends and family that we have been blessed with!
