LSC x 2!!

Well, I DID NOT see this comin!

Our agency called at 8:11am this morning just as I was walking in the house after dropping the twins at school to let me know that they had recieved the following email from our agency's in country rep:

"For Long XXXX, ccaa informed me today and this boy has been matched to our family, ccaa would issue LSCs of  Long XXX and Long XXXX to us asap."
I have no words.
Not only did the file issue get straightened out but we are hurdling right over waiting on PA for him and moving right on to their LSC's!! ONLY GOD.

(and ASAP have become my new favorite four letters. ;)
...of course their definition of ASAP and mine are somewhat different but nonetheless.....I'll take it.

I am trembling with excitement and can't even seem to find a coherent thought at the moment that doesn't sound like, "Yayyyyy!! Wooo-Hooooo!!" Praise you Jesus for your faithfulness to us!!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
       neither are your ways my ways,"
       declares the LORD.

As the heavens are higher than the earth,
       so are my ways higher than your ways
       and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

We hope to go get them in December!
