7:12pm EST


At 7:12pm EST, our lives changed FOREVER. We got THE CALL. THE CALL that told us we ARE OUT OF PGN. That's right, we are officially Gabriel's parents. We are still in complete disbelief that in 7 weeks and 5 days our file was approved. Utter disbelief.

Thank you, Lord. We are in awe of you and the mercy you have bestowed on us.

What does this mean?

That in about 5 - 6 weeks, our sweet little boy IS COMING HOME!

We have a mutual friend, Nicole (from MA) who shared your news with me this morning and sent me your blog link. I'm sure I read this on the forum yesterday, but wanted to send out a hardy congratulations.

Our case just entered PGN on October 16th and I hope we can have as smooth a journey as you have had.

I hope to read that you have pink very soon. Again, congratulations mommy!
