A little more info

Sorry about the lack of details! I still don't know what the sex of the baby is!
H is due December 10, and we'll be meeting with her in the next week or so.

Suffice to say we are beyond thrilled at this point!

A very sweet friend sent me this verse from "The Message" this morning, and it resonated in my heart.

Zephaniah 3:18ish
18"The accumulated sorrows of your exile
will dissipate.
I, your God, will get rid of them for you.
You've carried those burdens long enough.

When I got "THE CALL" (can't believe I'm writing that!)at a little after 1, I was on my lunch break. Becky only calls when it's important, but I played a little dumb because I wanted to hear her say it!

"She chose you guys, she isn't looking at anyone else." We talked for a few minutes about the past and things that happened and how we were dealing with it, and I told her my theory of "leaving my mark on the hard stuff" we talked a little about the meeting dates and then realized we didn't know what the baby's sex is! So she sent an email and I think we'll know tomorrow or so. It doesn't matter and if H doesn't want to know, we'll wait and be surprised too. We said goodbye type things and then in a drunk with joy excitement I told Becky I loved her before I hung up. (Am I a goof ball or what? Luckily Becky is a sweetie and knew I was just really excited)

So, That's what I know and Jer is home! :D
