Referral Call

We finally got the call for the child we have been praying for.

I was with my daughter at dance class when our agency called on Carrie’s phone. Carrie called me to tell me to come home so we could open the e-mail together as a family. The call from her sounded like this with tears and joy “We bla da cawww, you need ta heray home”. Me “What are you saying… Oh we got the call? I’m on my way, Awesome news!!!”. When I got home both her and my son were filled with excitement, joy and tears (too cute). I took a quick photo just before we opened the e-mail.

She is so Beautiful, and we are so blessed to have her joining our family. She is only 5 months old.

On a side note;
I ran my very first 5K race since I destroyed my ankle about eight years ago. My son ran the last little distance with me. He was so excited to run in the race. I ran it at an 8.3 minute/mile pace.

This will be the last Easter picture as a family of 4!
