We're On The Waiting List!

Today was a great day!  We are delighted to announce we've made the waiting list.  I'm a Whoo Girl so I've saying "Whooooooo!"  all afternoon.  I'll call someone up to tell of our good news and all I can hardly get out is "We're on the list!  Whooo!"  It is such a wonderful feeling to have made it one step closer to getting a baby.  We are number 10 on the non NRI (non resident India) list.  It is an estimated time of 10-18 months for a referral.  This happening today on Valentine's Day is so appropriate.  It's a day all about love, and we already have love in our heart for the baby who will be a part of our family one day.  I'm amazed how love for someone I've never met makes praying more passionate and fun because I care for the future the baby, saving money easier because of the purpose, and keeping a house in order more important because I want it to be home where children feel cared for.

Just a cute Indian baby!
A Note From Ryan: Cristy posted this from my computer which is why it says below that I posted this entry.  I am certainly not a "Whoo Girl"- but am glad to be married to one.
