Today, we got the call we have been waiting two years for. Well, we called Gladney 2 years ago tomorrow. Our dossier has been submitted for 1 year. Anyway....Beth (our case worker @ Gladney) called this afternoon & asked me if Tim was home. She doesn't normally start the conversation that way. I said no he wasn't, but asked if she had news. She said yes she did. I could feel my heart beating out of my chest!! I said do you have our referral? She said YES!!! My reply: OH MY WORD! Tim & Coy were @ the movies. I told her to tell me anyway :) She said, are you sure you don't want to wait for your husband to get home? UGHH! Yes & No :) I selfishly wanted to know right then, but impatiently waited the almost 1 hour it took him to get home. I called my parents, his parents & my best friend while I waited. My parents & best friend made it here, before my husband! I was about to send someone after him! I had the video camera & snapshot camera ready to go, when he finally made it home.
I'm not sure exactly how much information I am allowed to share yet, but let me tell you GloriaGrace is GORGEOUS!! She has tiny little almond shaped eyes, a sweet little petite nose & the most precious little lips. She is 4 months old, born the beginning of February. We are completely beyond excited. She is just perfect!
We will call tomorrow & accept our referral. Should travel the beginning of August to Colombia!! Thank you all for your prayers for our family & our sweet sweet Gloria Grace. Her given name also starts w/a G :)
