COURT DATE!!!!!

I interrupt these regularly-scheduled blog posts to announce that....


WE HAVE A COURT DATE!!!!!!!!!

While I was at Monkey's doctor's appointment today {asthma related issues} my phone kept beeping!  Even though there is a strick "no phones" rule in the office, I pulled it out to see what all the commotion was {I should have known}.  Several texts...



Brittany - "Call me if your free!!!!"

Ashley - "Did you get a court date too?!?!"

Stop right there!!!!  COURT DATE?!?!  Britt got her referral THREE DAYS before me and we turned in our referral packet ONE DAY after her!!!  That means we GOTTA get the call today, right?!?  Right.

I ran {drove} as fast as I could to pick up Monkey's prescriptions in a panic {partly because I had just noticed that my license expired on my birthday a few weeks ago...AHHH!} and then quickly home, hoping to be there when she called so that she wouldn't wake up my sleeping husband {long, busy night}.  I walked in the house and it was QUIET.  I had half expected the phone to be ringing as I unlocked the door!  I quickly went to check the call log and saw that HE HAD TALKED TO K while I was at the doctor's appointment!  Not only had he forgotten to call me {he was sleeping, I remind you} but he was sleeping NOW so I couldn't even talk to him!  Fortunately, there was a "court date follow up" email from K that gave me all the vital information.

We will be in our daughter's birth country by May 20th for a court date of May 23rd!!!!  This is SUCH a SPECIFIC answer to prayer....both in the fact that we got our court date...and the timeline!!!!  PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Immediately I started crying and RAN to Monkey and started hugging and kissing him with TEARS streaming down my face.  He kept asking "what's wrong mama?" and I smiled my BIGGEST grin and said, "nothing's wrong baby...mama's crying because she's HAPPY!"  Then I told him he would get to go to grandma and grandpa's house so mama and daddy could go see baby sister in Africa!  THEN he got a smile on his face.

Ahhhh!!!  This is really happening!!!  Rejoice with us today!

To our Lil Miss - we're coming!!!!!!!

Isn't it just so amazing how God's timing is PERFECT? Just when we need it the most, he is right there for us. My specific prayer this morning was to move that file to the top....wouldn't you just have loved to watch that happen? What would he use? An angel, a person, a mouse? Someday, we will know the big picture...until then, I'm dancing for JOY!!!!!!!
