Just read the title...that says it all, and really I have said that alot today.
I got a call about 11:30 today from Alla asking if both me and Tim could meet with her today, she had great news for us.
Tim was not home, so I preceded to attack poor Holly with my overly excited rambling and jumping up and down!
Tim finally got home (me and Holly washed all 3 dogs to keep me from blowing up!) and we took off to GR. Alla first told us that a region had accepted our paperwork. She then began to tell us about the area and we talked about getting a referral. At this point I was thinking we just met to share this news (which was good, but not what I had been hoping.) The town is named Tyumen if you want to google it! It is also where Alla grew up, so that was really cool.
She then said (after about 45min) lets take a break and talk about something else more exciting....She then showed us that we had indeed gotten a referral!
His name is Sergei, he is 15 months old and looks to be in very good health. His hair is dark blond (I know it doesn't look like it in the picture)
The only draw back was that we received only the one referral and we had been asking for 2 boys, but we are sending a letter to ask for more info on Sergei (medical and otherwise) and we have asked if there are any other boys under 4 years old available at this time.
We have decided that (unless something major comes up in the medical) that even if they can't find us another boy, we are going to take Sergei and go with just one for now :)
God has given us a great opportunity here, these events are unheard of...We got our paperwork done in 4 months and had a referral in less the 5 months after starting the process!I really have no words for all the emotions I have gone through today, I will keep everyone up to date on any news and Thank you all so very much for your continued support and prayers!
