We've been matched!!

We received the best Christmas news anyone could ever want! On Dec. 20, we got a call from our agency saying we had been matched!

When the phone rang, I saw that it was an Alabama number, and I wondered...why would my director be calling at 9pm (her time)? It could only be for one wonderful reason!!! I quickly answered, and she said, "Heather, have you checked your email in the last little bit?" I said, "No...why?" She said, "You better go check it!!" I screamed for joy and called for Andrew. We had friends over for dinner, and they started praising God! Andrew and I ran to our office, opened up our email, and fell in love with the little girl in the pictures. Our director was on the phone with us because she wanted to experience everything with us, and tell us about this darling little girl.

We are in love!!! I wish I could post pictures and tell you all about her. The only thing I can tell you is that she is 12 months old, and she is beautiful and amazing. As soon as China has processed our LOI ("Letter of Intent") paperwork, we'll have approval from our agency to post pictures and tell you about her.

They say it takes 2 to 3 months to receive travel approval from China, and I am praying it isn't more than that, and that it is actually less! We are now busy getting the baby room ready. We can hardly wait to go get her!
