We Finally Made The List!!!!

I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.
---1 Samuel 1:27
Chris called me at work today around 2:00. He had recieved a call from Christy at ACGI. We officially made the list at number 26. We are so excited and a little unbelieving. It's an odd feeling to know that you have been waiting for your spot on "the list" and that you finally have one. Each month we will get an update and hopefully our number will go down until we our number 1. The wait for a girl is taking about 6-8 months at this point. When Chris called at his usual time to tell me he was coming home he also said something that made my stomach flutter. He said, "We're pregenant!" Of course this time around it is nothing like being pregenant except that in the end we will have a new child to love. The wait will be about as long. Well I don't feel really wordy tonight just thankful and again in amazment of God's love for me.
Like cold water to a weary soul, is good news from a distant land.
--- Proverbs 25:25
