Lucky 13 and the BEST. NUMBER. EVER.

As promised, this week is supposed to be about our adoption {as if I could talk about anything else!}.  But, before I share what's been going on, I want to give you a little glimpse into the beautiful Ozarks in the Fall as viewed from my room this week at the Missouri School Counselor's Association conference. :)

Isn't it gorgeous?!  Ah, I love a little get-away to learn new stuff! :)

OK, now for the main show...

So, on Monday, there was ANOTHER referral in our agency.  This time, it was a 6 1/2 month old boy.  We were ecstatic to realize that this means we've moved up to


However, that excitement quickly turned to crazy, over-the-moon, hyperventilating anticipation after we realized {through a chain of events}, that we are number

for a boy!! 
WE ARE AT THE TOP of our journey to a son!!! 
Basically, if there is any boy under age 3.5 years for our agency to refer, he will be ours!
The only way we would get a girl is if there are 8 girls before there is 1 boy {we're thinking that's not likely} and the only way we'd get siblings is if there are 6 sets of siblings before 1 boy {again, not gonna happen}.

We are all feeling like this 
all. the. time.

We are so close, friends...SO CLOSE!

PLEASE join us in praying that it's soon...I'm not sure how long I can hold my breath like this without passing out!


  1. Wohoooooo!! I'm on pins and needles to hear your news!

  2. The last picture is probably the CUTEST thing I have ever seen.... I can't wait until all three of their sweet faces are in one together! love you dear friend!!!

  3. I recently found your blog because my family is using CHI too...we have our USCIS prints next week to finish up our dossier! So excited that there has been movement, and can't wait to follow the rest of your journey to your child!

  4. Oh, goodness! I hope it comes this week.... as you posted this a week ago it is highly likely :) Praying for you!
