Happy Valentine's Day!

This is gonna be a great day today, I just know it!  A great week!!!  If you would have asked me that at 4:30am when my two-year-old woke up screaming I might not have answered the same.  But after two hours of jumping in our bed he DID eventually pass out...and every minute of those two hours was completely worth it when I woke up to his peaceful face in my arms...and his daddy's right next to us! =)  Happy Valentine's Day to me...what could be sweeter???  (In fact, the two of them are STILL snoozing at 10:34am...Monkey's pooped out....guess that's why they say "no monkeys jumping on the bed" right?!?)

But BEYOND getting to spend Valentine's with my two favorite guys, I have a GOOD feeling about this week!  This is the FIRST time, I have woken up and thought, this could be our week!  The past SEVERAL couple of weeks I have woken up and thought, not this week...but maybe the next.  In all reality, we are unofficially #5...so close enough it could happen.  Especially knowing there are babies AT Hannah's Hope who need a family.  I guess it completely depend on if they are "paper ready" and how many boys vs. how many girls.  I guess I should say, I don't OVERLY have my hopes up....but this is the first time I've even had the THOUGHT it could be a life-changing week!  It's close, I know it is!

I was praying for my girl this morning....every time I pray for her, I pray that she has enough to eat, something to wear, a diaper to cover her bum, loving arms to hold her, and kisses touching those sweet cheeks every day.  This morning, I felt like I didn't need to worry about those basic needs being meet because maybe, just MAYBE, she is in the loving care of the special mother's at Hannah's Hope!  No, it's still not the same love she would get being HERE every day...with a mother and father and brother calling her family.  But from what I hear from every family who travels there, it is the best possible care she can receive until that day!
