Well, if you saw yesterday's Wordless Wednesday post, you may have some lingering questions.... The answer is, YES!!!! We're having a baby boy!!!!! A local birth mother has chosen us and she is due on Christmas day! I guess that's good and bad because, yes, we want him to come ASAP, but then again, we do have a lot to do in preparation of his arrival. This will allow us plenty of time to prepare his very masculine nursery, as well as hold a few more fundraising events (golf scramble, softball tournament, Gold Canyon candle sales).
Honestly, as God's timing always is, it will work out perfectly. I'll even be able to complete my bachelor's degree before he get's here. Thanks to Leslie's research regarding Jefferson Community College, I've switched over as a visiting student so I can complete my last four classes by the beginning of December. As I said before, His timing is always so perfect.
Now we're on the hunt for a crib, baby furniture, etc. We had some great friends donate a room full of baby toys which has already filled the room we plan on using for the nursery. That's such a good problem to have though :)
Right now, more than anything, I am requesting your prayers. Not for me, but for the birth mother, and that precious little baby boy growing inside her. Pray for their continued health; that their every need be provided; that God will somehow work His way into her life; and that He be glorified. It's very easy to succumb to the stresses of domestic and international adoption, but right now, we have to lean on Him. We love you all so much, and we look forward to sharing every detail of this with you!
