We Got THE Call!!!!!!

Yes, THE CALL!!!

While we were sitting in church yesterday and were totally unaware, until after church when I went to make a call while talking to some friends and there was our agency as a missed call and a voicemail.

I freaked out...it was a Sunday and soooo not normal!

When we finally got in touch with our social worker, she gave me the details. The baby girl was born Saturday morning and is healthy!! Our SW asked if they could show our profile today. I won't go on and on with the story tonight because my brain is fried, but they showed the BM our profile as well as some others this morning and she chose us!!!! We will not meet her. If all goes according to plan, we will have our daughter home with us on Wednesday!

I'm not going to share all the details, because they aren't mine to share. This is not my story. It is this mother's story and this BEAUTIFUL baby girl's story for her to one day tell if she so chooses.

Please pray that this all works out...we will know for sure tomorrow when the relinquishment papers are signed.

Praise GOD!

I'll update with details as soon as I can!

Yeah so happy that you feel you have a right to tear another family apart. if you cared about that mother and child you would do whatever you could to keep them together.

Andrea said...

Jennifer,

Literally every hair on my body is standing up and I'm overcome with emotion. I'm in tears reading your words and praising God for this miracle. He's heard all our prayers....and they are answered.

"For this Child we Prayed and the LORD has granted what we asked of him"

We will be on our knees as the process continues. Praying you hold your miracle safely in your arms tomorrow.

Much Love and Continued prayers...my heart is SO full.
