I'm home (OT) UPDATE: AND HE IS COMING HOME SOON!

Finally home and settled. What a weekend!!!! I know I've been so stinky this weekend and left you all hanging. Sorry about that! Let me see...

I'm not really able to share much on here. If things continue as planned I will set up a blog where I can share more details. But I don't feel comfortable sharing on a forum board. I'm sure you all will understand.

Right now we wait. The next step is there's to take. Once we have that we move forward and work on a plan for transitioning him home. I promise to share as soon as I'm able!

Oh yeah, and I'm shocked nobody caught on to my post about what 3 yr. olds like!!!!! Sneaky little devil aren't I? ROFL

For tonight we are on :cloud9: and my cup runneth over!

UPDATE: OMG! OMG! Our little man's first family called last night and said they have decided for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He's coming home with us really soon! I can't even type I'm so excited. I promise to set up a blog or something as soon as I can sit still to share more with you girls. Thank you for praying for us! I'll update more ASAP, off to meet with the SW and then the lawyer. Praise God, I'm a mommy!

PLEASE NOTHING ON FACEBOOK JUST YET

Totally understand you not being able to share many details - but as soon as you can, please do!! Don't leave us hanging anymore then we already are!! Wink

I was wondering about your 3 year old post, but figured it was for a birthday gift or something... Lol

I totally thought you were making a gift for a friend, you do that all of the time. You sneaky girl!

Oh, I'm so excited!

My son Andrew has been praying for you, ever since before the "fiasco" ... I told him tonight to keep praying, that things have changed and you may have a son. He had a lot of questions, and I couldn't answer them, but I tried explaining a little bit why someone would give up a child for adoption (as that's what his questions were about, but very specifically about this little boy). Anyhow, just wanted you to know that my 7 year old is keeping you very active in his thoughts and prayers, just as I am too.

I totally understand about not wanting to share on a public fourum. You never know who or what is around. I was thinking about you this afternoon at church, I think I said more prayers today than I have in a long time ( both for you and a personal friend going through the adoption process too). I can't wait to hear more as you can share it.

And I didnt even think anything about your post about 3 year olds LOL I am always asking the same things because I never have any idea what to buy for kids out of the same age range as my own.

Oh, Gwen you have brought tears to my eyes! What a sweet child you have. We are so blessed to have such wonderful families and friends to support us. Thanks!

WOOHOO!!!!!! Kelly, what a praise report!!! God is so good. I'm reminded of the worship song, "though the sorrow may last for the night, JOY comes in the morning". This is great news. I can't wait to hear more.

:lurk:

I know I mostly lurk over here, but I got chills reading this because I was thinking the same thing as I followed this thread!!

Still praying that everything works out...and I was TOTALLY suspicious of your "what a 3 yr old would like" questions. ROFL

I was totally suspicious but I didn't want to ask for fear of invading privacy. I figured when you were ready to share you would.

Can't wait to hear more updates.
I was totally praying for you yesterday even though I haven't been on pg.org for a few days. God just laid you on my heart and told me to pray.
