This does not feel real!!!! We've been waiting on this moment to happen since January and it's finally here! We officially received our DSS approval letter on October 2nd, 2012 via snail mail!
Everyone besides me (thank God!) is currently sick in our household, so while we all grabbed the ginger ale and cleaned up vomit in the bathroom with Clorox wipes, we had a little celebration in our hearts, too.

Beloved will be coming home sometime in the future months.

Every step we've taken through this adoption has made things a little more real. I've never had a "name" for this next child, but God placed this verse on my heart after the very first moment we officially decided we would pursue our next child through adoption:

"Those who were not my people I will call 'my people,' and her who was not beloved I will call 'beloved.'" And in the very place where it was said to them, "you are not my people,' there they will be called 'sons of the living God.'" 

Romans 9:25 - 26

And honestly, it was not until today, that this next child got a name... Beloved.

Whoever they are and wherever they are, they will be called beloved; because whoever they are and wherever they are, they are LOVED, by us, and more importantly God.

So, Beloved... get ready to join this crazy family!
We are waiting for you!
