About Me

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.

TA CAME TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was interpreting in my 7th period Math class and I had been waiting with baited breath for a phone call or an email for something to say that TA is here or not!  I heard my phone vibrate and got so excited I couldn't breath!  My student and I just kept looking at each other laughing, as I told him that my phone was vibrating and was hoping it was my Adoption Agency with good news!  The teacher took a breath and I ran to my phone and saw it was my adoption agency phone number and they left a voice-mail.  As soon as the teacher took another breather I asked her if she didn't mind but I needed to leave the room for a minute so I could check my message. She is well aware of what we have been waiting for and told me to run out of the room down the hall a bit to get service and call.  I called and got the news we have been so waiting for!  I have never been so excited to hear Lydia say " We got something in the mail for you today!!!!"  of-course being the crying fool I am.... I burst into tears and couldn't speak for a minute!  They are putting in for Possible CA on 1/25/, 1/26, 2/22, 2/23 and 3/1   I am of course praying for 1/25  or 1/26 I should know within 24-48 which of those China has approved!  4others from my agency all got TA too!  I am now praying for my sweet sister Daleea to get hers so we can be in Jinan together to get our babies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Praise the Lord for miracles now I just need a few more miracles before we can go! Greedy aren't I?  We need the 25th or 26th and we need the rest of our funds!!!! SO excited to know that by Wednesday at the latest I will know which day we will finally behold our new son!!


I will post CA as soon as I know it! Thank you Lord for helping us through this whole process and we pray for your loving hand to guide Luke's heart to comfort so that he will not be full of fear when he sees us and he will KNOW that we are his parents and that he is loved and so safe!  Going to celebrate with my hubby and kids and try to come down off cloud 9 and then start some serious praying!!!


It is not as impressive as it is in real life, but this what we have been waiting for!!!!!!!!!!
