Pinch Me

At 1:15pm today, my phone rang. Since I was at work, my immediate thought was "why would anyone call me while I'm working? They all know I can't answer the phone." It was a break between classes, and I happened to be with my husband at the time. I decided to answer it incase it was an emergency.


It was our agency.


WE'VE BEEN MATCHED!!!!!


Thank God for such a speedy result. I can't even believe it's true. Here are the details as we know them right now:


- It's a GIRL!!!

- She will be born in So.uth C.aro.lina

- Bir.thm.om is Caucasian, Bir.thfa.ther is African American

- She will be here in July!!!


I'm so excited I can barely see straight. I've been absolutely buzzing all day. I feel like I consumed an entire bag of sugar. When she told me we'd been matched, I cried. When she told me it was a girl, I cried even harder.


At those moments, I felt like I'd just finished a marathon. It felt like I crossed the finish line and could finally just collapse. We asked a lot of questions, and then we gave the go ahead. So, we're officially matched.


Of course, it's possible that things could go wrong. We have to go into this with our heads on straight and the knowledge that anything could happen. But for now... for this night... this beautiful end to a beautifully sunny day... I'm going to just be happy.


I will keep you updated on the progress as things occur! Be praying for our journey.
