Tomorrow

Tomorrow is going to be a big day for our family.

Tomorrow, God willing, we will get the call introducing the newest member of our family!! Our agency reported today that they have received our matches. They are translating them from Chinese and will be calling us tomorrow afternoon. I am already in tears. I can't imagine how I will make it through the phone call tomorrow. Thankfully, dh is coming home early so he will be here as well. I am hoping we will also get pictures via e-mail and be able to see this dear child's sweet face. Imagine, we are already linked and I don't know where she is. I have never seen her face, but I love her so much...

Tomorrow we will also be attending the funeral of my Uncle Stick. He died in a tragic accident early Sunday morning. I wasn't particularly close to this uncle. He was most known to me for his long, hippy beard and uncanny ability to eat everything in sight and still resemble a stick. At any family gathering you would inevitably hear him say, "There's no such thing as a left over." Nonetheless, we will be praying for him and his siblings who will miss him greatly.

Tomorrow.... How will I ever make it through today?

I've got goosebumps!!!! I cannot hardly wait to hear your news - or see her beautiful little face! :) If I feel like this, I can only imagine how you and D. must be feeling.

Sorry to hear about Uncle Stick - he sounds like a real character. I'll be praying for the repose of his soul and for your family as you await your news.

I'm not sure why but my blog wasn't showing your updates, so I'm a few posts behind. I wasn't ignoring you. Promise.

Hugs!
