I checked my e-mail just before lunch and there was a note from our adoption agency. Hooray! We got our pre-approval from China. We can adopt Evan! Oh, how excited we were that the news finally came. I was jumping up and down and doing the happy dance. They said, "Yes"!! What a joy and relief it was to get this news. There may have even been happy tears shed by this mom. :)
I was so excited and Jadyn had this look on her face like, "What has gotten into you?" I told her I was that excited on the day we found out we would get to adopt her. She thought that was pretty cool.
I am so happy for Jadyn. She WILL be getting her little brother! She's been asking me almost every day lately if I will show her his photo. Sweet.
Once I finally settled down to a halfway normal level, we went out to lunch to celebrate Alan's birthday. It was a double celebration for us.
Here are some photos of our little guy.
Recently, Alan said he thought it would be so cool if we got our PA on his birthday. Well what do you know? That's exactly what happened. In the China adoption community, that would probably be referred to as a Red Thread. I think it's also God's timing. He's like that, you know!
I was doing some reading this morning, and came across this verse in the Bible. I wrote it down and stuck it on my refrigerator. ~ Lift up your eyes and look around; all your sons gather and come to you. Isaiah 49:18
It was only a short time later when we got our e-mail about the PA. Too fun for words.
