Some things aren't always as the appear

This morning started off as a bad day.

First off, I was running a little behind going to work , and I got stuck in traffic for 20 min. There is never traffic on my way to work! About halfway there I realize I forgot my phone at home. now I am not super reliant on my phone, but when I don't have it I feel kind of like I am going to miss something important.

Then God turned this blah day into the BEST day!

At work today, I got some fantastic news!

We found out that our friends, The Carter's, passed court today ! YAY! You must go check our Baby Elliot, Baby Plumb's future BFF!:)

The Buster's got their referral for a 4 month baby boy!!! I have been stalking their blog hourly, and when I saw the REFERRAL post, I started to cry! YAY EMILY!

And then, about 10 minutes ago I am looking through the unofficial wait list and realize that another family got a referral today! The Schumacher family got a referral for a baby boy!

That's right people! If you did the math, that puts us at number 3 on the unofficial wait list!

WHAT!?!? I am jumping out of my skin!

We are so close! It is starting to feel real!!!! :)

"Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name: make known among the nations what he has done" 1 Chronicles 16:8

Thank you Lord for this awesome day!
