We Accepted A Referral!!!!

I apologize for not keeping up with my blog. We have had quite a week. Our biggest news is that we accepted a referral of a waiting child. She is beyond beautiful and has been living at the Layla House for almost two years. She is anywhere between 10 - 12 years of age, but they are not sure. I fell in love with her the instant I saw her on our agencies Waiting Children Video. She is sweet and has the most loving smile that I've ever laid eyes on. All our paperwork is complete and her referral was "officially" accepted by us yesterday (signed and sealed)!!!! We are so blessed!

God has blessed us, has provided us the wisdom to adopt an older child. She will be a blessing to our family and we hope to be a blessing to her forever.

I will be asking our agency if it is within their policy to allow us to post pictures of her since our blog is now private. If they allow it I will post them next week. (We are headed off on an 8 day cruise to Panama, Costa Rica and Mexico)!!!
