Amazing...

I cannot believe we are finally at this spot in the process. I was so shocked when the call actually came. Let me first say, that I am not in Colorado right now...I actually am in Utah for a little work trip. I got off the plane and was at baggage claim when my phone rang...it was a long distance number that came up so I wasn't expecting our referral because I thought it would be an unavailable number. I answered and heard Natalie's sweet voice and I was in tears. She said she had our referral for us and I told her I had no idea what to do...I was in Salt Lake and Andy was away from the computer. I told her I was going to try to call Andy and I would call her back. I finally got a hold of him and he told me to go ahead and hear about our baby. I called Natalie back and just cried and cried at the Salt Lake baggage claim as she began to tell me about our baby girl. We have a beautiful three and a half month old little girl..She has amazing big brown eyes and is absolutely beautiful. We are just so thrilled and in awe of this amazing gift.

Thank you guys for all the encouragement you have given us...you have blessed us so much!

It is such a blessing to adopt. Congratulations on your referral, now the real wait begins. It always seems so much longer when you can actually see the face of the baby that is waiting for you miles away... your pick-up will not be long, Ethiopia is very short.
Good luck with your new baby girl! God is so amazing and He has blessed you in such an awesome way!
