On Pins and Needles - Part 2!

And now time for PART 2!
(For Part 1, click HERE)

You know when you're waiting for something important and so you try not to do anything else, therefore you do nothing, except you try and stay busy....yes, you see the problem.

So last night that was how things were for about an hour. The phone was charging right in front of us while dinner was in the oven/on the stove. We tried to talk about our day without honestly caring how each others went (well, let's be honest people...we didn't this one time!) 

I can't describe the feeling. It reminds me of how grandparents look on television in a maternity waiting room anticipating the birth of their future grandchild.

And then the phone rings.
Kelly looked up and said "It's her!"
We rushed to the sofa, he put it on speaker, and we said hello.

Over the next 30 minutes we learned about her life, her interests, our commonalities, and why she chose us. We asked questions, she asked questions and we all laughed.

It was comfortable, and awkward at the same time.
Again, it's hard to describe!

What I can tell you is that we feel connected already and we see/feel God's hand in it.
It just feels right.

So now we just wait, get updates on doctor's appointments and anticipate the next part of this process...getting to meet her in person in a couple of weeks!!!

Oh yeah, and we better get busy on the nursery!!!

Did I mention the baby is due in July....
