Our application is in the mail!

I have been lurking a lot lately but not posting much since I'm usually on my phone. I've missed 'talking' with my adoption ladies, so here's an update on me. :

We sent in our initial application to the agency this afternoon. We sent it priority mail so they should receive it tomorrow. We're so excited, and a little nervous, lol.

We have received several monetary gifts for our adoption in the past month, including an anonymous cash gift of 1100 delivered to our front door by a stranger who had been asked to give it to us. An amazing blessing, and one more 'sign' from God that we're following His plan for us. We love these affirmations! We also got a few gifts for the baby from our immediate families at Christmas, which is so sweet they are just as excited as we are about the journey we've just begun.

Happy New Year, here's hoping many of us become parents in 2013!
