We have our referrals!  God is blessing us with two beautiful little girls, ages 4 and 5 years old!  We are so excited.  I keep having to pinch myself to check that it is really happening.  I have waited so long for this, that the reality of it still seems dream like.  We originally were thinking that the Lord would bless us with a son and a daughter under the age of 3.  But His ways are so much better than ours.  We know that these sweet girls are the children the Lord planned for us.  It is amazing how one can look at the picture of a child and just know.  Thank you for all your prayers.
