The moment

It seems very interesting to me that we would get the "referral call" and the "he is legally yours" call while at church, but that is the way God orchestrated our moments. I had my phone in my lap in anticipation of a call from AGCI telling us we passed court. At precisely 10:30 a.m. I felt the vibrations of my phone and I RAN out of the room. I could tell in our case manager's voice that the news was good, and it was ooohhhhh so sweet!!! At this moment I officially became the mother of 5!

I also realized yesterday that the pain and anxiousness of being pregnant is similar in a lot of ways to working through an adoption. For me, I think this adoption process has been more difficult. But you know what, just as I forgot all of that when I gave birth to my children, it was the same for me yesterday when I received this phone call. All the months of stress and concern faded away. He is our son and I couldn't be more grateful!!!

(I'm just a little bit sad I couldn't capture Jody when I called him at his office and shared our news.....sorry babe, I guess A.J. will know who loves him more?!?!)
