do a happy dance

Yeah! We found out today we are OFFICIALLY waiting! 5-7 more months and then we'll know who our child is! We are so thankful that the process has gone smoothly up until this point. I am also glad that we are pretty busy the next several months which will hopefully make the wait go fast - but not too fast - I want to enjoy these last few months of it just being us!! (Not that six years hasn't been enough, but you know....)

If you think of it, you can be praying for our baby and his or her birth mother and family as these months progress. There will be much going on in their lives and they will have some hard decisions to make. It is so strange to think that somewhere in Ethiopia is a baby that God is knitting together in his mother's womb- or is already born! - to join our family.

Well, I wasn't anticipating those deep thoughts, so we'll just leave it at that and expound on those at a later time. :)

Yea! We're looking forward to talking with you guys more about everything when we come visit this weekend!!! I'm sure after having our busy babies around all weekend you'll really try hard to enjoy your last several months just the two of you. : )
