We have it LOA!!!!!!

Can someone just come and pick me up off of the floor.... I can't believe it! We got a call today from our agency letting us know that they have our LOA. It came in 22 days from our PA. I am in shock, crying and so many emotions are running around in my heart. I feel such relieve and an overwhelming sense of gratitude to my Heavenly Father for providing us with this precious little emperor that we will become his forever parents. I am so very thankful that his birth mother gave him life and that the birth family was able to make that heart wrenching decision at 6 mos old to give him the opportunity to have his needs met knowing they were unable to provide for his medical needs. I am Thankful for his foster family that has so lovingly provided for him and given him the opportunity to grow and love them. I am so very emotional right now......

We have decided on a first name JONATHON We will call him Jon Jon for short. Growing up in the Kennedy era I have always loved that nick name.

Yes, I did a new blog look for Christmas as it was time to change with a boy on the way. It will change again after Christmas. I used a free background and than had Tenille make a header for it. I love it! There are so many wonderful designers out there for blogs it is always so hard to choose!

I know most of you have heard by now but I just wanted to say congrats to Kaycee and Mike on their referral for the adorable precious Jennifer! She is cuter than a button with all of that gorgeous hair and so young!! The blog is Stories of Life in the Middle of Adoption linked.
