9 months of waiting and....

Today is exactly 9 months to the day since we started our adoption process. We made the decision to adopt last November but Dave felt very strongly that we wait until the 1st of the year to proceed. And here we are 9 months to the day later ....... finding out that a little girl in Guatemala has been born in the past week that probably will be our DAUGHTER!!! Isn't God's timing amazing?!

Let me explain the "probably" part. A baby girl has been brought to Eagle's Nest and has had almost all her paperwork approved. They are still waiting on a couple lab reports before they can officially refer her to us. As long as everything is ok, we should have our referral in a couple days and of course, PICTURES!!

Don't worry, we'll post pics as soon as it's official!! And above all, we pray God's will for this child even if that means we won't be her family. But for some reason, I just really think this is it : ) .....and then the real waiting begins!
love, Marianne

I am also adopting from Guatemala. I live in AL and am going through Lifeline agency. We are getting a little boy, hopefully in January!
I will be praying for you and your process and your family.
