- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.

Well we are starting to head towards the end of our journey and I am wondering what our little man is thinking? I KNOW what I am thinking... WHEN OH WHEN CAN I HOLD YOU????? I am ready to leave and ready to get out of here. (well not actually packed and ready but feeling more then ready time wise). Many who were originally on similar timelines as me got their TA's today, I know that could have been me, but there is a reason why I am not going right now. I know soon I will get my Article 5 (I should have 1 more week then get my Article 5) then after that comes TA which is normally 2-3 weeks after Article 5. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is getting brighter by the day! I had dear friend at work today give me a travel outlet adapter for China and a travel waist money pouch, It really hit me.. OH MY LORD I gotta get my butt in gear and get ready to get out of here! We were given a bedroom set by our Amazing Pastor and His incredible wife and we are so blessed to say that we just switched the kids bedrooms around yesterday and now Tommy is sleeping in his new room with Luke's bed set up right across from him and that really made us all cry as we starred at the empty bed and knew that oh so soon Luke would be here and him and his brother would be signing to each other at night from across the beds. Tommy even set up a lamp and night light near the beds so he can sign with Luke at night (as he so cleverly told me this "oh and Guess what mom.. you wont even know we are awake and talking to each other (well signing to each other) unless of course we laugh" hahah I love that he thought of that on his own. My hubby is so excited that soon there will be another Deafie in our house and that more and more hands should be flapping and creating a breeze in our house! Aaron is due home for Christmas break soon and he will arrive home to a new bedroom and I think he will like the set up of his room he is now the last bedroom on the floor and can overlook everyone when he opens his door. Strange to be actually seeing things happen now when for so long it was seeming like this would never happen! Well our sweet Luke we are coming soon! Hang in there as mommy and daddy are on their way soon so you can meet your family that waits for you back in the good ol USA!
