A little bit BIGGER update

Today I took the boys to the zoo with another friend, then went to Costco to get a few groceries, and then home. Periodically throughout the day I would think to myself "I wonder if I got an email from AWAA yet? I wonder if we've been assigned a family coordinator?" We got home at about 5:00 and as soon as I got the groceries put away that needed to be put in the refrigerator or freezer, I got out my laptop to check. I had 51 unread emails and as I scanned through the senders, I kept hoping I would see either AWAA or Sara. Finally, at about unread email #45, I saw the name I was looking for. :-) Here is what Sara said:

Dear Garth & Carmen ~

I hope you are doing well today!  I wanted to email you to confirm receipt of your initial agreement paperwork and payment.  Now that I’ve received your paperwork, your family will be assigned a Family Coordinator to work with you through the remainder of your process.  You should hear from your Family Coordinator within the next week or so regarding the next steps.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

It has been a pleasure to assist your family through the process thus far and I wish you the best in your adoption journey!  I pray that the Lord will guide and strengthen you through your process. 

In Him,

Sara J. Munyan

I have to admit that I was first a little disappointed because I was hoping to have the name of our family coordinator right now, but then I remembered that I better get used to waiting.....and waiting.....and then waiting some more. :-)

Today I Kissed an Angel

Today I kissed an angel. I knew it from the start. The first time my angel smiled at me; I gave away my heart.

Today I kissed an angel; This angel child of mine. Though not of my creation, My child by God's design.

Today I kissed an angel. My heart is dancing wild; Our family, by a miracle; Blessed by our angel child.
