it's becoming more real

there are days that i forget that we're waiting to adopt a baby, it's so surreal! i'll just be driving along with my 2 boys in the back seat & then think, "oh my gosh, we're #2 on the waiting list to adopt a baby from Uganda!"
this is all the Lord's doing! all His timing! ALL for His glory!!!
i need to be more faithful to pray for our baby. i am so grateful for the aunties that are caring for our baby even now... it's 5:45 in the morning in kampala. our baby will be waking up soon. i rejoice that this sweet one is in the Lord's hands. He holds them with His right hand.
i just watched these 2 "gotcha day" videos from families that have already adopted... pretty much i cried A LOT! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we can now legally leave the country :)

so i had to apply for another passport to get my last name changed. :) & we had to apply for the boys' passports...
WE GOT ALL 3 OF THEM IN THE MAIL OVER THE PAST WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they said it would take up to 6 weeks & it only took about 2... praise the Lord! we're one step closer!
we also received an update from our agency, that there's no update. :) His timing is perfect!
please continue to pray for our sweet baby.
