Getting to the TOP

 Thank you so much for your sweet comments on yesterdays post... you're so precious. It's been a very emotional week for me... and I've been struggling quite a bit. You're words brought a little sunshine.

We got a call from our lovely case worker K on Friday with our July number...


 BUT a few hours later we got word that another family received the referral for their little guy and we are now in the TOP TEN!!! That's right we're unofficially #10!!!

We also had a great first meeting with our international pediatrician. He spent over an hour with us and we left feeling so great about him being Tucker's doctor. He answered all our questions and described all that would happen once Tucker comes home. He also gave us his email and cell # and told us he would be available to us the entire time we're in Ethiopia... BOTH times! Then... the kicker... at the end of the visit we were just having small talk and all of a sudden he looked at John and said "wait a minute... you aren't... YOU ARE!" He used to live across the street from John's parents! He moved a few years ago, but once he made the connection we recognized him and it just felt like such a confirmation!

We're still in the middle of this crazy roller coaster. It's tough some days and other days we're just coasting right along... please keep us in your prayers!
