What a Day!!

My heart is full! Of course, my head is overwhelmed trying to figure out what the heck our next step is....taking pictures of our house and us (not gonna lie...used some older "Becky-friendly" ones) to send over with our application and dossier, figuring out how to apply for citizenship for a child who's name we don't know, figuring out where the region we'll be travelling to is (it's Tyumen...still don't have it nailed down, but I know it's nowhere near Moscow), and FINALLY making plans as to what we're going to do with the baby's room. Like actual, real, pick-out-a-paint-colour, choose a pattern, let's start shopping REAL plans!

THIS is what I've been waiting for. Getting to tell our family and friends what we have to look forward to...getting to keep his or her eventual name a secret to get back for all of those surprises from our family (jokes!)...getting to plan and dream, and really feeling like it will come true...This is my positive pregnancy test....I am so blessed!! It's so, so awesome to have so many people congratulate us....our child is coming into our lives knowing that he was loved and thought about and prayed for by SO many long before we ever knew him!!

"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

It will!! It will!! It will!!

p.s. It it wrong if I send Mark out for icecream late at night now or park in those pregnancy spots?? Just asking....

I squealed in delight just now...I'm at work, in my cubical, and people are standing up to look at me. I don't care!!
I'm so so so excited for you and Mark!! Congrats on being paper pregnant! Let the count down begin.
So, do tell what colours you are thinking for the babies room? Does this mean we can have a shower for you soon?
God is great!
