What the Lord can do in just TWO weeks!

I know it has been a while since I have updated, but there really has not been much to update on.  Well, in the last two weeks we got a referral for a 5 month old baby boy and we received a court date for July 18th!!!!  There have been moments where I just have to sit down and remind myself to breathe!!

First, I want to tell you about our beautiful little boy that will soon be in our arms.  I told my husband that I would like for him to get the referral phone call.  I was able to tell him that he was going to be a daddy with our other two boys, so I wanted him to be the first to know that we are going to be parents again.  On June 20th around 6:45pm we were at the pool letting our four year old swim with daddy.  JT and I were sitting outside the pool playing battleship on the Ipad. (He has broken arm so no swimming for him).  John's phone started ringing and I looked at the caller id.  It was Lesley!!!  I walked over to the pool and calmly said "John, you may want to take this call".  He answered and after a few seconds started grinning ear to ear!  He got off the phone and I said "is this it?"  He grinned and said "it's a baby boy!".  Well, I then started screaming at the boys to hurry and get in the car!  I remember running to the car and I could hear John's voice behind me saying "no running".  We got in the car and he looked at me and said we are going to go into the house and get the boys dressed and we are going to calmly sit down in front of the computer and call Lesley back.  (Yeah right!)  When we called Lesley she said open up your email and you will see his picture.  Oh, what a beautiful sight when you see your child for the first time.  There are no words to describe it.  Our little man has a head full of black hair, beautiful black eyes, and the sweetest lips!!  I wish I could show you a picture of him, but until we pass court we are not allowed to post any pictures. He is absolutely precious!!!

Yesterday was another day that took our breath away!!  Lesley called me while I was at work at the hospital and told me we had a court date for July 18th.  She said need to be in the country by the 16th!
So, we will probably be leaving next Friday morning to Ethiopia.  I am completely overwhelmed with how fast God is working!  We are trying to hold on tight and just take it all in!!  I will update again as soon as I get a minute from packing.
