It’s a Done Deal!

November 21, 2010 rixgal

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….

    Congratulations! I am so very extremely happy for you and wish that everything could go better than well after all for your family including Nora. I am a lurker from far far away (English is not my first language as you may notice), but I have been following your adoption process for a long time. Our long and misfortunate Colombian adoption process that we started 2005 ended abortively more than a year ago, but we just adopted a wonderful special needs boy from another country. I have been praying that you would still agree to adopt Nora even with the risk of her great challenges.

      And if she doesn’t even like to be called Nora, Ella, Elly, and El are also adorable names.
