I have to wonder what i would have done if our little man was already here with us. Would I have grabbed him on my way out the door?? I would like to think that i'm a good mom to be and would have saved my child first but honestly people I dont really know. I love squirrels and chipmunks but not so much when they are indoors and racing around on the bed that just minutes ago i was sleeping in. If only someone had thought to take out the video camara these are the stories we will laugh about for years to come.

As i'm writing this its about 5am in Ethiopia and my little boy is probable snuggled in a crib at hannah's hope just waiting to know who his forever family will be. I long to hang a stocking by the fireplace and buy a babies first christmas ornament but I havent let myself go there until we see him in pictures. Baby boy you are so loved already. You have aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins that can't wait until you come home. We so appreciate all the love and support that we have gotten from family and friends so far during this process and the wait from referral to travel might be the hardest wait yet . I think the motto of adoption is "hurry up and wait" get this done so you can wait some more.
Tonight I pray for my child, his birthmother and Almaz and the special mothers at hannah's hope. I also pray for my other family my AGCI family. All the ones that are waiting for courtdates may the judge have favor on you and let those little ones come home, all my girls right in front of me on the list(Dawn and Jody) may we know our sweet childrens faces soon. To my girls right behind me (Kim and Nell Ann) may your referrals be close behind. And for the rest on the list may you fly up the list as quickly as we did. Here's to smooth sailing thru the process.

Congrats on you new little boy. However there were two unknown people on the list after them. Over on the girls list Stacy and Maria both got referrals congrats to both of you on your new little girls. They were are #1 and #4 with two unknowns between them. There is a very strong chance that the unknowns on both lists were the same people and that they got girl referrals also yesterday which would move us to #3 on the boy list. So in honor of possible being #3 here are a couple drawings from some friends.
Thank you Annemarie.
Thank you to Diane's girls.

Ok I know this post probable looks confusing so let me explain. Officially we are still #7 however we know that a referral was made right before Thanksgiving which makes us #6. Until these people do all the required paperwork needed to officially accept a referral they don't come off the list. So you can consider us to be 7 if ya wanna be all official and #6 if your like me and want this to move along. I know it hasn't been alot of movement this month but families are getting thru courts and traveling which is something to be thankful for. We are still hopeful that by christmas or soon after we will know who our son is.

"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow be patient. For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3
And with that lets get to some fun stuff...more goodies for babies room.
A hand carved mask from Kenya..found at the goodwill store. Hope this isnt scary for the little man.
I found these giraffes at the goodwill store and had to bring them home. Autumn I realized they look just like the ones in your little mans nursery I'm not trying to copy you I promise.
Photo Album and baby bath stuff from Big Lots..oh the funny conversation that took place with one clueless cashier over this album..Can't wait to change the name on the bottom (to either our last name,babies ethiopian name or babies name from us Noah) and see his adorable face smiling out at me. I'm sure it wont take long to fill this with pictures.

1. I have to have a pepsi every day..its my source of caffine since I don't drink coffee and if I don't have at least one a day migraine will come
2.I'm obsessed with greeting cards..seriously they are more important to me then the gift usually...not that i don't love getting gifts but cards are important. And I don't just love getting them I love giving them...I"ll spend hours in the card store to pick out one card because I have to read them all until i find the perfect message that my heart is trying to send
3.mascots-I have a fear of them. Now I work at a baseball stadium so I have had to get over some of that because our mascot will high five me and hug me several times a game and i'm cool with that now..(just don't wanna see who is in the suit)..but some still freak me out and i can't get near them...Like a certain beaver that if you have been to a baysox game you'll know what i'm talking about...for the rest of you maybe i'll post a pic of it sometime...seriously hes freakish
4. I'm always cold...if it's below 75 i'm probable freezing and bundled up and everyone else my husband included is probable still running around in shorts..
5. sometimes i like to just make noise...just random singing or yelling of nonsense...don't be scared i only do this in my house or in the car
6.I sleep with a stuffed animal...I really do along with my husband and my dog you will also find a large stuff winnie the pooh next to me in bed...yup it gets crowded at times haha..
7. Perhaps the weirdest and most Random thing about me ......My husband haha...he told me to post that. But he is pretty weird and random...to bad he doesnt have a blog we can tag he would have way more then 7.
So there ya have it. Perhaps now I have scared everyone and noone will ever visit my blog again. Wait does anyone really come here anyway??

I have been thinking alot of random thoughts today and then I stopped to think about that unknown woman in Ethiopia. What woman is that you ask?? Its the mother of my son. There is a very good chance she is pregnant right now. My child as we speak is probable growing far away from me in a land vastly different from the one in which he will be raised. I pray for her that she has enough to eat, a save place to live ,and comfort when she needs it most in making the decision to make an adoption plan for our child. I hope and pray that someday I will get to meet her and express to her how thankful we are for the decision she has made and the little life that she is entrusting to our care. I will forever be grateful to this unknown woman in Ethiopia and hopefully someday she will be known to me.
