Today was the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was at the pool with my mom and the kids and my cell phone rang-- the special ring that I had set for our agency. I jumped out of the pool saying this is it, this is it!!!!!!!! My heart was pounding. We got info over the phone about his name, situation, ect..... Clay drove from Nashville to meet me to see the photos of him. He is 1 month and beautiful!!!

I cannot tell much about him on here but I'll tell you he's precious!!!! We are in love and cannot wait to pick him up. Everyone asks when we will travel. It really depends on if Ethiopian court close this summer or not. If not we may travel in September, if it does it may be November.

I received two pictures of him and he is tiny. We will let you know when we pick a name for him!

I am still giddy and on cloud 9!!!!!!!!!!!

We are praising God!! Your wait has been a blessing to us all in the way you have let God shine through it--thank you sweet family! He must be so beautiful! May God hold and cover him with His enourmous Daddy love every day of his life and especially in the weeks until he is in your arms. Blessings! Love, The Tuckers
