You're Not Going to Believe This!

No joke, we came home this afternoon from running some errands, I opened my email account and there sat a pending donation for $845.26 from one of the most special people in my life, my Sunday school teacher from when I was in the 2nd grade, that walked me through what it meant to be a follow of Christ!!!! Talk about bursting into tears, I just lost it (I might just loose it again if I'm not careful)! God could not be any more amazing in His divine work in every detail of this story! I'm simply at a loss for words. I feel like just putting my hands up in the air, closing my eyes, and just letting Him hear my heart because words just don't seem adequate!
Wow, okay... so that leaves us in a little bit different place then we were earlier today. NOW I can scramble to get my ducks in a row, copies made, home study report in hand, and overnight this dossier to AGCI tomorrow so that they have it by THIS Friday for review! Here I was hoping to maybe just maybe have it in by NEXT Friday and now everything has fallen in my lap for that to happen now! I was able to meet up with "B" (social worker's) husband tonight to get the three original notarized copies of our report that I needed. He was so sweet to meet up with me at 9 o'clock at night, changing his plans around, so that I could have these reports to send off in the morning! So tomorrow my agenda is strictly getting the three sets of copies made, making sure it all looks perfect, and overnighting that baby to our agency! Ahhh!!! We could possibly have our boy's number by this Friday! This just makes it so real- that this number will forever be associated with our baby, and that we'll watch this number only go down from here! I LOVE that God knows the exact number that our child needs to be and knows our boy by name already! We're coming for you kiddo, one step at a time! And oh the stories we're going to have to tell you of how God brought you home- how we can't wait!
Pray that everything comes together smoothly tomorrow and I'm able to get everything copied and shipped off without a glitch!
Thank you for all the prayers, love, excitement, encouragement, generosity, and amazing crazy ways that ya'll have helped fund this God given burden to adopt an orphan!

God is putting everything together for you to be placed with the exact boy He has for you! ahhh... tomorrow is the big day!! So excited for you!! This is going to be such an amazing story to tell baby boy!! I already can't wait to get that sweet thing home!
