Hey everybody. :)

It's a glorious day here...the sky is a pale spring blue with big puffy clouds. The trees are rustling gently with a warm breeze. Ahh...I love this weather. It's been so nice to be able to open up all the windows and let the breeze flow through the house. I am definitely ready to bid winter goodbye!

We've had little bits and pieces of progress in the past couple of weeks. Two weeks ago, we both went through night classes to become CPR (adult, infant, child) and First Aid certified. It came in the midst of an insanely busy week, but we are thankful that it all worked out so we could both go.

On February 11, I had my doctor's appointment to follow up on my test results. The appointment was very short; we learned that as far as the GYN (Ms Delk) can see, I should not have any problems getting pregnant. But, Ms Delk referred me to another GYN to do further testing just to be sure. We do think we have some answers with regards to our infertility, but are keeping this information private.

This past week I received my referral to see the new GYN. However, it turns out the doctor is actually from Mobile, AL and only comes to our area twice a month, and he was booked out until May! So, I am going to be calling today about making an appointment with a different doctor and hopefully I can get in before too long.

Also this past week, I finally got our family profile sent off to Nightlight. :D While most of our profile has been done for several weeks, I've been waiting to work on our letter to the genetic parents with Caleb, whose schedule has been very busy. After getting the letter done, I had lots of issues with converting the file to a PDF, so it ended up being a much longer process than I expected. But, it's with Nightlight now, which is very exciting.

So, where does that put us? Well, we are sort of in limbo mode right now. We are still waiting on child abuse/neglect clearances from AL and TN to finalize our home study. We also need a letter from a doctor saying I can carry a baby, which I'm hoping to acquire when I go to my appointment with the new GYN. After those two things are finalized, we will move into the matching phase!! It is sooo exciting to me to realize how close we are to matching, especially as our agency has a very short timeframe for matching (1-4 months). :D

Other than adoption bits and pieces, not a whole lot has been happening around here, just the usual flight school crazy schedule for Caleb, piles of homework for him, me being a housewife, babysitting, and fulfilling our church commitments. :) God is definitely at work here, and we are so excited to see what He will do in the coming days.

  1. How exciting, Beka! Being unable to fall pregnant myself for over 3 years, I know how exciting it must be for you to know that it might not be much longer until your dreams are realised. That is such wonderful news and I pray the Lord works it all out for you. xo
