It’s a Done Deal!

We have accepted Nora’s referral!  We sent off the fax on Nov. 19th.  YAY!!!  We are shocked that we are able to go and come home with our little angel BEFORE Christmas!  Oh, this mother’s heart is full of joy unspeakable and full of glory!  Presentation day is Nov. 23rd… NEXT Friday!  I can hardly believe the whole thing is real!

Here are a FEW of the cool God-instances that have become apparent to us….  God moments where His hand was all over this adoption:

1.  Nora was placed into the care of ICBF on my birthday!

2.  We are traveling to get Nora on Thanksgiving Day!  It was Thanksgiving Day 2006 when we announced our adoption plans to our families.  Four years to the D A Y !

3.  Her name is Nora, but she asked us to change it.  Eleanor is my mother’s middle name….. and for purely quirky reasons, we wanted her to have a name starting with E…..  we hope she likes Eleanora.  It means ‘shining light’

4.  I have been making a little play kitchen for Nora with a sink and stove top.  In the new report it specifically said that she “especially likes playing with a kitchen with a stove…”     Awwwww.

See?  God moments.

Please stay tuned for adorable little girl photos….

I’ll be there for You!

Today I went to lunch with a girlfriend who is also an adoptive mom.  She told me her “gotch ya” stories and I almost burst into tears each time when she received her babies!  It is so awesome how God brings families together.  I love to hear each story!  Somewhere throughout our conversation, I told her about a group of adoption maniacs who all live in Tennessee.  (You know who you are!) I read their blogs and have become friends with them.  I am supremely envious when each of their new babies have come home in the past six months from Colombia, China and Ethiopia… and they ALL go to the airport to celebrate the homecoming of a newly adopted child.  It’s awesome!  Anyway, my friend promised me that she would come to the airport even if we come home at 3:00 in the morning!  So sweet.  Made me want to cry again!  So thankful for supportive friends!
