We've been MATCHED! A sweet expectant mama picked us! To say you go through a mix of emotion is an understatement. Do we laugh, cry, yell, jump up and down, or just act normal? No one told us how to act once we got that phone call.
It went a little like this...
"Hey Rachael, I was calling to ask you a quick question." I, of course, thought nothing of it and was ready to answer. "Are you guys ready to become parents?" I am pretty sure I replied saying, "well, yeah...," being the blonde that I am :). She said, "Well, great! Because you have been matched!" I screamed so loud, in her ear, and said "WHAT?!" Those words, "you've been matched" were words I didn't expect to hear for a long time. Maybe 3-4 months. NOT two weeks! I could not believe it!
We were and are still so shocked! How cool is this? That this expectant mama, looked through a stack of profile books and picked US! We are honored, blessed, and beyond thankful for this precious woman.
Will you pray for us? For her? For the baby? Will you pray that the funds are provided and there when needed? Will you be our support system and biggest cheerleader?
