Praise the LORD!!!!! They said YES!!!!

So today has been a very exciting day at our house. We finally got the phone call that we've been waiting for. It came this morning with a sweet lady on the other end of the phone line saying, "congratulations Mrs. Bice, your family's adoption application has been approved". Oh my, I was so excited! She began telling me about all the documents she was e-mailing and the steps that we needed to go ahead and take; and I don't think I heard a word she said. Looking back, I should've asked her to hold on a minute while I scream and shout and then maybe I could have listened to her instructions. Oh well, thankfully she repeated the steps in her e-mail.

Most people have asked me the same question today. Why did you get so excited, did you think they would say NO? Well my faith was failing me the past few days. The agency told me I should hear from them with-in 10 was the 10th day. For Heaven's sake, why would they do that to me? For those of you who have already been down this adoption road, I know what you are thinking right now. "This little missy better get some patience quick". : )

So from what I hear, we have tons of paper work ahead of us... I guess I know what I will spend my summer break doing. HOMEWORK!!!! That's okay... when we hold that precious baby in our arms, it won't matter a bit how much time, money, energy or effort it took to get there.

I have a very "thankful" family tonight : ) Thank you all for your prayers!
