So happy for our friends!

Yesterday our Yahoo group lit up with messages of great news from afar and such excitement!! Our agency got 6 referrals that went out to five families. So many of these families we have gone through this process with, so it is so amazing and emotional to see and read their messages of joy announcing their new babies. I am in a cloud today. I was so emotional hearing the news of each family, it was like having four of your close friends call within the same hour saying they have delivered their babies!! It is so inspiring to see things rolling along and to know that we have to be SOOO close. We are so close and yet I long for my baby girl even stronger. The closer we get the stronger the pull becomes. I suppose that is exactly how God wants me and he knows exactly what he is doing. It is a day for praise!!!

I love your post!! I know exactly what you're feeling!! Girl, we are sooo close! If my calculations are right, you & Mel are next for girls and we're right behind!! Can you imagine God allowing us to travel together. Hearing the sermon Sunday prompted so many emotions for me...I'm thankful our ET team came together as an army and CRIED out to Him!! He heard our cries in a mighty way!! We will get our referrals soon....very soon!!!
Love you lots :)

Knowing that you've been waiting for such a long time I am praying that God speedily sends your referral. My hope is for the next batch for you guys!

There is nothing better during this wait than to rejoice for otherswho have received their refferals! It is one of the only things that makes the wait tolerable for me!
