no number :(

I just got off the phone with our case manager and we don't get our number today. Everything was perfect except one little thing: John's birth certificate was on a plastic card ... they want it on paper. So we have to go to the county office on Monday and request one - then mail it out - then HOPEFULLY get our number. Please pray for me - I am extremely disappointed. But, we're trusting God's timing - and my post from this morning is coming to mean so much more.

Hi, Lauren,
I have been thinking and praying for you today as we both we waiting to hear our numbers. We also have one small correction and we were disappointed as well, but as my 10 year old said, "Its a good thing, mommy, that we believe that God has a perfect plan to get us to our new brother." My kids had even made a cake today as a surprise to me to celebrate a possible number. Well, we will keep trusting and praying!
In His Hands,
Amy

Hang in there---a similar thing happened to us and we had to redo some things...and although it was hard at the time I know it was just God's way of slowing me down a few days to put us in line at the RIGHT time for the RIGHT child he set aside just for us to all be together!!!! It really will make sense soon!

My heart sank my friend...but you are so right. His timing. Praying!

Thanks for the sweet comments about my family. I am so sorry to hear that you had to deal with the disappointment of not getting a number today. At times I find it hard to understand God's timing in my own life when things like that happen until later-usually at the end of it all-each the the puzzle pieces falls into place and I can look back and say "Thank you God for doing things in your time table." I will be praying for you the next few days that God will give you peace about all of this and good things to come. Keep really busy this weekend and Monday will be here before you know it!
A little funny side note-a similar thing happened to us on the last leg of our flight to Cancun on our honeymoon-they almost didn't let my husband on the plane because of the same thing-I thought he was going to pass out right there and maybe even hijack the plane if they didn't let him on-we finally found a person who had the authority to let him on the plane. Thanks goodness-it wouldn't have been much of a honey moon with out him. lol!
Praying for your hubby as well and your sweet bundle to be as well.
In Him-
Jill Jones

Hi Lauren -

I completely understand why you are disappointed and I am so sorry for that. I was looking forward to hearing what number you were today!

Hang in there, you are so close!

Thank you for your prayers. I'm sure you know how incredibly valuable they are. I appreciate you taking the time to pray for us. I too will pray for you and the journey to your son.

Hoping to hear GREAT news and also hoping for a low number! :)

Glad for all the updates. Congrats on the blog nomination and the "shred" results! I think I'd rather go to the dentist than work out with Jillian. Have mercy...

Keep us posted; love the pic's of possible baby rooms. Keep dreaming.

peace~elaine

Hi Lauren,
I was sad to hear you didn't get your # this week. Thinking about it reminded me of when Teresa was going through their house gutting last summer. One of their really nice, brand new windows had a crack in it. She was disappointed but she posted on facebook that, "patience comes with a prize". That has stuck in my mind ever since. It is true. There IS a "prize" at the end of all the waiting. Yours is coming and I am so excited for you!
Love and Hugs! Gina

I am so disappointed for you! But, I think you are just about to live in your dream. And what now seems like eternity of waiting will eventually seem like it was a flash of time. I will be praying for you. :)
