no words...

I just recieved an email that said we were approved and J should be placed with us today!!!

I have no words. I'm so excited and nervous! I'll have a baby on Mother's Day!

Thanks so much and I'll keep you updated! I'm hoping to take him home with me when I leave the hospital at noon today!

Praise God!

I just deleted my comment on your last post...girl, I hardly know you but I find myself sobbing with tears of JOY for you! I am amazed by a God who wants to grant us the desires of our heart in ways that we would never have planned for ourselves! His plan is so much better than our biggest dreams. I am so excited for you, that you will be able to rock that baby to sleep in your nursery tonight instead of the hospital!! I will be praying for a smooth transition for you, Heath and that sweet baby boy!

Samantha said...
