I was at work and Aaron was working from home. We were both convinced that we would get the call that week. We couldn't really think about anything else. Aaron texted me a couple times around lunch time to see if I had heard anything... to which I replied "uh... trust me, if I hear something, you'll know!"

It was about 2:00 when Aaron sent me this message on AIM. We literally got the call minutes after he sent that first message. Too funny.

I answered the phone and Ashley already had Aaron on the line. She began to tell us about our boy. His name, his story, his birthday. We were both crying and shaking and so excited! After we got off the phone we received an email with all of his information and a photo.

Aaron came to pick me up from work and we went home to call our family and share the news!

Wednesday morning we contacted a pediatrician who specializes in International Adoption to review his records with us and share any concerns she had. She called us Thursday night and I was very pleased with the amount of information she was able to give us. After talking with her, Aaron gathered the documents necessary to send off and officially accept the referral of this beautiful baby boy.

Now we wait for a court date! It seems that the change I told you guys about a few weeks ago is going to go into effect after all. This might mean that we wont be able to lay eyes on little Arthur for months, but we're so glad to know who he is and we're believing in God's perfect timing.

  2. This makes my heart so happy! Hope you'll be able to share pictures soon!
