What a birthday surprise!!!!!

Today is my birthday and our adoption agency just updated their website with the BEST news anyone could ask for on their birthday...

"Great news! We received matches today! The packet includes those families with a log in date of 9/12/2005. We did not receive matches for families with a LID of 9/29/05. We also received matches for Chinese descent families with a log in date through 3/15/06. We will be notifying these families by phone on 1/4/07."

PRAISE BE TO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What does this mean? Our logged in date (LID) is 9/12/05 and we have FINALLY been matched with a baby!!!! Our adoption agency will call us with all the details about her- her Chinese name, the city and province where the she, if she's in an orphanage or foster care, how old she is, etc. We requested a baby girl between the ages of 6 months and 12 months, but I've seen people be referred children older OR receive a boy instead of a girl. So, who knows what tomorrow brings!!!! I am just SOOOO thankful that, after 15 1/2 months of waiting, we will be seeing our daughter's face for the FIRST time tomorrow!!!!!! She is REAL!!! She's not just a dream!!!!

God is good and He does good!!!

I will definitely post a picture of her sweet face when I finally have it!!!
