Answers to Anya

We have been praying about Anya for awhile now and we have been talking alot about her to Andrea and to McKenna. I have made up my mind that I really want to adopt her. Tony has been waiting for God to give him the right sign that she should be ours.
Today I was looking back to find her on the other angels. I could not find her on the site anymore so I was getting really upset that something had happened, maybe someone stepped up before me and had committed to her before we could. This made me very uptight to think we had missed our chance.
It was then that I decided to check under new commitments and that maybe they had moved her for us, because we had asked so many questions and because I had told them that I really wanted her. When I moved down I saw my baby laying there in her picture and it was such a beautiful sight. I new then that God had made this decision for us. We hadn't made the final decision to adopt her, but somehow it must have seemed that way. I think it was God. Tony had been praying for a sign the entire time, and now I think this is it.
I now we can do it. I have thought about it over and over, and I know we together can do this. We may have to hire someone to come in and help a little with cleaning and stuff, but its al l good, I know it is. Now I must prepare another place for Anya to sleep, and buy a few more items that she will need. Ten kids, WOW!!!
I check the mail everyday waiting for our paperwork and still, nothing!! We are getting very frustrated about the wait. I know this is normal, but we have waited a bit longer than most families on here. We just want the three girls home.
Thank you to everyone that helped to pray for Anya. I thank God that he helped answer our prayers. We just needed that extra kick to make the decision.
I will let you now if we get our mail in today or not, Thanks, Leah
