From 3 to 4 - We Got a Little Girl!

Today our county DHS called us to say that we have been matched with a 3 1/2 year old little girl for foster-to-adopt!! We will hopefully get to meet her on Sunday. We have no idea what she looks like, but we'll email a picture hopefully next week to friends and family.

The hard part is that she lives two hours from here so it will make the transition process difficult. We are considering spending a couple of days in her town so that we can visit her multiple times. Then if all goes well she can come here to stay by the end of this month!

We have been praying about her for weeks. We are just jumping up and down and thanking God that our family will finally be growing again and that we get to give this little girl a family that will love her forever! There is a six month period where they evaluate the placement to see that everything is working out. Her birthday is in April, so maybe we'll be able to begin the actual adoption proceedings by her birthday next year! Yippee!

Congratulations. Any child will be lucky to belong to your family! I hope that it all works out well. It would be fun to begin adopting at her birthday! :)

Congratulations!! A little girl! What a joy! I know that you will be such a blessing to her life. You and your family will be in my prayers as you get to know each other and grow into a bigger family. I just wish you all the best.
