Well, we officially past the one month mark since our referral. Little Miss is one month older (she is now almost 6 months old). We are so thankful for the Gladney update we recieved a few weeks ago, and for amazing friends who traveled last week and delivered wonderful pictures to us! We are eating them up...Hayden keeps kissing her pictures, declaring her his little "angel"...we'll see how he feels when she eating his Legos, or keeping him up at night, but he's absolutely smitten. Jack is so happy he's no longer the "little brother" and anytime you say "little brother" he's very quick to remind you he is now a "BIG BROTHER...LUCY'S BIG BROTHER!! I'm NOT a baby. I'm a BIG boy, mama." In those exact words. I think he loves her purely on her ability to up his family status :)
We have been hoping to hear what our court date is, and we know we MUST be getting close to finding out. I was starting to get antsy about it, but the pictures of our girl, and assurance from friends that she is being very well loved and taken care of have really helped. I am really really hoping we'll get to travel by the end of March...and the first March travel dates are already being filled as families pass court. I'm trusting God completely, and praying that he gets us to the girl very soon...we can't wait to meet her!
