We Have a Match!!

Yipppeeeeee!!! We have been officially "Matched" with our girls!! We just finished the pre-application packet and have set the appointment to begin our home study! Yes, this will be a long drawn out process and yes, you will probably get very tired of hearing about our adoption process by November, December, January and so on... We do not have any time line yet- we can't even venture a guess but it will be awhile before we get back to China to get our daughters. Today, what is most important is we are officially matched. Tomorrow- I am ready to go go go!!! 

Today during our lunch time we had the TV on. Sweet Sarah looks at the TV and says "It's Tiger!" Obviously, we have a few golfers in the family! The person on the TV was actually our president- it gave us a learning opportunity!

Soon I will give a little info out about our girls BUT when is the appropriate time to post a pic?

Thank you Jesus for our children and for the special blessings of our daughters from China!

Congratulations! I am so excited for you guys. Can't wait to hear all about your new daughters, see their sweet faces, and best of all, see them in your arms! Happy paperchasing!

Chris said...

BTW can you e-mail me about using some of your comments in something I am writing....I can't find your e-mail addy

Mandi said...

Oh Jean, I am so happy to hear this. I have been praying that you would have some good news regarding your girls. I can't wait to see pictures and hear more about them. Are they twins???


Sue said...

Awesome.....and congrats

Mom to my China Posse said...

Oh, at least give us names! Congrats!!

Lizzyf1 said...

how wonderful!!! I cannot wait to see their faces and learn more about them. It's so tough with adoption that you can't share but we must follow directions or the CCAA will not be happy!!!

See you Friday!

Jill said...

Can't wait to follow the journey!
Hugs, Jill

Mom Of Many said...

Yippee Jesus!! I KNEW you would be matched - oh how God loves the orphan - and when someone is willing NOTHING can stand in the way!! xo

Laura L. said...

Woo hoo! Congratulations to all of you. Your girls will have a wonderful home, and be blessed beyond words. God is good.
Can't wait to see photos.

Suzette said...

What a wonderful blessing! I rejoice with you as our EA is being sent in today. We are also so excited to accept the referral of our daughter just yesterday and can't wait to follow along with you as you wait to bring your girls home. Our God does give us the desires of our heart doesn't he?!

Lori said...

Great news!! And NO, we never get tired of hearing all about it!

Ha!! I WISH Tiger was our president!

Jboo said...

Congratulations! That is so exciting!

New reader here coming over from Lea's blog. You have such a lovely family!


Janet said...

Yipeee!! We're excited to follow and learn from your family. Janet

Sally- That Girl! said...

So nice to have it official!!! Good luck with the fun of paper chasing!! It is so consuming in a good and bad way.

I think we are "officially" in a holding pattern on our next adoption with the turn of events with Bryson. He needs 100% of my time and paperchasing just isn't in the cards for us right now.

So I get to live through yours!! So post whatever and whenever you can!

They are darling and meant to be with your family!

Karen said...

Congratulations!!!!!! Let the paperwork begin:-) Praying the paperwork goes quickly and you have your girls in your arms sooner than you think.

TanyaLea said...

Wonderful news!...Congratulations!!
It seems we are in the very same boat: So grateful that we are matched, and anxious to post photos, but cautious to do it in the correct order and proper timing. It's so hard though...I'm right there with ya! :)
Can't wait to follow along on your journey to your daughters!!

God bless! <><

Janet said...

Can you (or did you already) tell us how old they are? Just curious where they will fit into your family age-wise.
We hope to be DTC in a couple of weeks=). Janet

McNew Family said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to hear/see more about them and all of you! Could you please email me - we are DTC within a couple of days and hoping to perhaps bring a again out child home concurrently I would love to "chat" with you.


Holly said...

I've just returned to your blog after a hiatus and... you are adopting two more?! Congratulations!!
