Baby B...here we come!


Seeing our baby girl for the first time!

These two love Baby B!

Yesterday I told Dad B this was our week-and it was!!! We have received a referral for a beautiful, spunky 16 month old little girl who has stolen our hearts already. We are so thrilled to finally see her little face. As W1 used to say, "Her's a beauty!"

The call...today was crazy-racing to get W2 to camp then W1 went to my moms while I worked. I was so hot and kept thinking about how good the pool would feel. When we got to the pool, I was playing ball with W1 thinking about how I could stay in the pool all day-(It has to be the hottest day of the year) when I see Dad B hobbling down the stairs. I thought it was weird but went to meet him. He said that someone wanted to speak with me and to push talk on his cellphone. Well, the 817 area code popped up and I hung up-Dad B said "don't do that" and I started screaming and crying and hugging him. Everyone at the pool thought something was wrong- W1 was running in circles, of course W2 was still swimming oblivious (having the time of his life as he later told me). I finally calmed down and called Natalie. She told us she had a referral and then I asked her how long she would be in the office. ( in my head I was thinking, we could swim for a couple more hours----WHAT!!!! I have been waiting for this day for so long and I wanted to wait-seriously, I think I was in shock)-So, after I pulled myself together, we raced home to see the most beautiful little girl in the world. She looked sad in the first pictures, but then she was so happy-in one picture, she is even throwing a toy- and W2 said, "yeah, she is kin to me!" W1 is so excited and keeps saying, she is the most beautiful baby ever and has called everybody.

Well, that is all for now. Thanks to all who have prayed for us-please continue, we still have a long road to hoe.

    It's been a good week for Gladney NC families. You received your referral, another passed court and one returned home with her baby. I'm also from NC and hope to receive a referral this month.
