AHHHHH I am soooooo excited!!!!!! I am praying for some pictures of Luke to be sent to me this week from the package we sent to him with Angela at Lady Bugs N Love, she has been amazing for us and really goes out of her way to get something for my guy, since he is older she has done some special shopping for him. Ok I am going to try and get some sleep so tomorrow I can get working on the gifts for the orphanage and dignitaries on our trip and get some more organizing at home and for the trip done. We have a ton to do and finally I can say not much time to do it in and for once that really feels good! Here we come Luke, Here we come!!!!!!!! It wont be long now.... We are still in dire need of prayers for funding for the trip. We dont not have the travel funds needed yet and are just finishing paying off all the adoption agency fees. So please pray for us as we trust in the Lord for the provisions needed for the trip to China!!!!!!
- 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.

So my adoptive nesting instinct must be working, as I am feeling the need to clean and organize like a loony bird heheh. I also got the suitcases out of the closet and am starting to make my "Official lists" I cant believe it is almost here and soon we will be on a plane to China! Someone on one of the groups I belong to posted that she got a message that her TA is being delivered on Monday and her Article 5 pick up was the same as mine. Of course that does not guarantee that mine is coming Monday or next week at all, but it sure gives me hope that it can happen! If it wasn't so snowy and icy out I would be outside doing a cool dance! (well in my mind it would be cool but Lord knows what any onlookers would think of my dance! heheh). My husband and I looked at each other tonight and broke into instant giggles at the thought that we are going to be parents again real soon. We cant wait to meet Luke and start to get to know him. Is he shy? Outgoing? Funny? What are his thoughts and his likes and dislikes... How fast will he pick up ASL? What will he think when he sees Tom and I for the first time and I start signing to Tom what is being said in the room? Will he understand that Tom and him are both Deaf, but that I am not? I cant wait to wrap my arms around him and hug him so hard but I dont want to scare him the first time we meet either, but whew it is going to be hard to not do that and to not bust into tears. I am finding it hard to sleep the last few days as the anticipation is getting to me, I cant even imagine how much I am not going to sleep when we find out we have TA and start making flight plans and such. I already put in my papers for my leave at work and we will adjust dates as needed. My leave starts Jan 7th but I know that will be changed, we just had to give a date to be submitted to the school board and we gave the earliest possible date.
