Not This Time.

This month we have come the closest that we ever have to getting a baby.

On March 20th the baby we were waiting for was born.
She was born completely healthy and did not have Down Syndrome.

While this is fantastic for the baby it leaves us saddened that our time has not yet come to raise the little girl that our Heavenly Father has asked us to seek and make our own.

With much prayer and perseverance we will continue our search for Joy!

Closest we have ever been

We might have a baby before this month is out - wow! The situation I posted about in "Hope and Joy" is moving forward. If this little one does have Down syndrome (there are such things as false positives on prenatal screenings), she's ours! Wow! What an amazing gift! We have wanted this for so long, it almost doesn't seem possible that it could actually happen!

Yesterday I had to run get fingerprinted with the FBI. I now officially have a mug shot! (FYI - it's not very flattering! :) ) Jason goes on Friday for his fingerprinting and mug shot. On Friday our Social Worker has to come out and do an update. It's been six months since she was in our home. Is my house clean? No. Oh well. I still have 24 hours! :)

Here's hoping for Hope!
