Ahhhhh....

That was the feeling we all had as our social worker walked out of our house today! Not that she is scary or anything, but it's just knowing that our homestudy is FINALLY DONE!!!!!! Oh my goodness! This is our first big hurdle and we have done it! This is so huge! Oh my heart, I can't even explain how bad I want to squeeze our little Bulgarian babies right now!!! I keep dreaming of the day that I get to walk into an orphanage on the other side of the world and kiss, for the first time, my sweet children that God handpicked for us.....I try to imagine how it's going to feel for us to be together after all of this time. How will it feel for ALL of my children to be in one room and to not feel like someone is missing? Oh I can't wait!!! I just wish I could call out "Mama's coming!" and they would hear it and know that we are working hard to get to them.

Oh friends, could you pray with us? You are like our family here. Could you pray that everything keeps going smoothly for us and that our sweet children are being taken care of while they wait? Thank you friends!

xoxo,
Samantha

My friend Kim is experiencing the same thing right now! She and her husband just finished their home study this week too! It's their first time adopting and it's been exciting (along with about 472 other emotions) to read about the journey!

If you want to check out her story, you can find her at http://kbhawkins00.blogspot.com

You've got our prayers!

How exciting!

That's how we felt, too, when we fnished our homestudy (our oldest is adopted, but from here in Texas). I hope it all proceeds along well for you.

Kim said...

Yes, yes, yes! We're still praying!!

Yay! I just got back to reading your blog and haven't been as active at SM so I just learned of your long road trying to add to your family. Your post about the children donating their money had me teary. Good luck to you all!

WOOHOO!!!! YIPPEE!!!!!
You can't see me but I am jumping up and down with joy for you guys!! I remember the amazing feeling of finally having our homestudy done so that we could actually start waiting for our referral.
I have not stopped praying for you since you first told me you were adopting. I can't wait to hear that you know who your new children are, and are winging your way to collect them.
I will continue to pray for your family to be prepared for them, and for them to be prepared for you, so that you will be woven together in a beautiful tapestry of family.

I thank the Lord that you and your family found in your heart so much love as to share all you have with children so far away from you. It is very touching for me reading your amazing journey, a testimony that there is God. God bless you all

I am surely praying. He has hand picked them. He is protecting them. And, they can "hear" you say, "Mama's coming". I know to many I sound crazy, but this is a heart thing, and our Lord works with hearts.
He has it (what ever and when ever it is) all planned out perfectly.

Prayers are on the way.

How exciting!! I can only imagine how eager you must be to meet your new family members. I've been praying for your adoption - hope it continues smoothly.
God bless

Oh Sam, I was out of the loop for so long and when I came back to find you, I see the great news. I will certainly add you to our prayer list. How are things going? Keep us posted.
