Our Christmas Miracle!!!

WE WERE APPROVED BY DHR, AND WE ARE NOW WAITING FOR A MATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After almost three years of wondering if we would ever really make it this far......Praise God it's HERE!!!! We could be weeks away from meeting our new child (or children)!!! Weeks, not YEARS!
Talk about a Christmas miracle! As we celebrate the Greatest Adoption Story ever told this season, my family will also be celebrating this amazing breakthrough in our own adoption story. Friends there have been times over the last three years that I felt like we would never make it here. We had so many dreams shattered along the way that it seemed like an impossible task. BUT HE IS FAITHFUL!!!! There are absolutely NO WORDS to describe the way I feel right now! I've cried, I've laughed, I've called, I've texted, I've jumped, I've danced and I've said how I can't believe it at least two thousand times! We MADE IT!!!!! Very soon I will get to meet the person that has the missing pieces of my heart, I will get to hear their voice, get to know their heart, learn what their favorite meal is, know what makes them feel better when they are sick or hurt, I get to finally be their mama. Timothy will finally know what its like to have a brother!!! We get to be a WHOLE family!!!

Ahhhhhh.....it's nice to be here. Thank you so much for sharing this journey with us friends. I'm honored and blessed beyond measure to have so many sweet friends that care about my family! MERRY CHRISTMAS FRIENDS!!!!!!!! xo, Sam

As one who has walked the journey of adoption, even though the last three years have seems insurmountable at times, they will be looked on as part of an incredible voyage that made your family complete! The hard times become part of the amazing gift!! I look forward to hearing each wonderful word!

Praising the Lord with you all. I've been praying for the children since you first told me about your adoption journey. The Lord knows exactly who is coming home and when. Wait on Him. Having walked the journey, waiting seems impossible, but His perfect choice(s) for your family makes the waiting time seem like a blink.
Have a very Merry Christmas!

Hi, Sam, I was just wondering if you've heard anything yet. You've been on my mind a lot lately, and I'm praying you get to bring your child(ren) home soon. :)
