A little more detail

Well, I promised more information, and here it is. Sorry it has taken almost a week to post an update.
First, here is an overview of our time line
May 1st - Decided to Adopt
May 11th - Information meeting at Night Light Christian Adoptions
May 14th - Met with Special Link Adoptions
May 18th - Mailed our application to Special Link.
- Homestudy scheduled for June 18th. Started the paperwork for our homestudy.
June 8th - Got an e-mail from our agency about a possible situation but we needed to move up our homestudy.
June 9th - Homestudy
June 13th - Homestudy officially approved.
June 25th - Got the CALL! A birth mother has chosen us to be the parents of her baby boy.
August 10th - Due Date for our little boy!
Everything moved so fast, but worked out better then I could have planned. We know this is what God's plan is for our lives right now. Who else could have orchestrated everything so perfectly.
Please continue to pray for us as we wait for our son to be born. Please pray for the birth mother as she makes this decision. We will be traveling to Alabama to pick him up 5 days after he is born. The birth mother is given 5 days to change her mind. I know those will be the longest 5 days of my life.
We are so excited about becoming parents, and can not wait to meet our son!!

Your baby boy is just gorgeous! Congratulations to you & your family!

Question: Did you match through Special Link or NightLife? We're also in SC (Charleston) and have been trying to adopt for the last 3 years. We've had numerous heartbreaks and failed adoptions in that time. I'm just so ready to be a mom. Plus, I am always looking for additional avenues to bring home our child. In case I don't get back to your blog, feel free to drop me an email at
