We Have a New Referral!!!!!!

YIPPEEEEE!!!!!! We have a new referral and we have ACCEPTED. : )

I am so happy to introduce you to our little boy:

Jeremiah James Harris

(Soon to be an Avella)

Isn't he a cutie? We don't have a lot of details to share yet, other than he is 1 and 1/2 years old. Perfect! I don't know how long we are going to have to wait to get him home. We'll know more later. I'm just so thankful to be moving forward. We are trying to be cautious with our hearts and to remember that anything can happen, but are celebrating in this next step closer to our son.

AAAHHHH!! He is so precious. I know you are so excited and probably so scared at the same time. I've been peaking at your blog almost daily hoping to see this wonderful, wonderful news. WOO HOO!! Can you tell how happy I am for you. YIPPEEE. Love, Missy

PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!! He is beautiful!! And sooo smiley! ;0) Great, great pics. He and Micah are only about a year apart. Too fun.

I couldn't help but smile at God's timing: Just look at how He brought you to a place of thankfulness, calm, and joyfulness (I'm referring to your last post) despite not having a referral, and BOOM! ...once you were there, the blessing flowed in!

And here's some unsolicited trivia: I was named after my Grandpa James, so if I had been a boy, my name would have been James instead of Jamie... and my maiden name was Harris! So, I'm LOVING your little guy's name!! ;0) CONGRATS, BECKY!!!!!!!!

Jamie Z. :0)

He is such a little sweetheart! He is about the same age as Henry.

I'm so happy we've finally gotten to this place. Oh. That "we" sounds kinda funny, but really, *we* have been waiting a long time to get you here! :) Those pictures are awesome (I hadn't seen them before) and I'm so glad you're matched with such a sweet boy. The little I "got to know him" in Liberia, I think he'll fit right in with you guys!

Love you,
Rachel (your adoption coordinator) and Rae (your friend!) :)

Isn't he darlin! Everytime I've seen a new entry on my reader, I'm praying it's a picture of a new little one. Praying that this little man will be home soon.
God bless,
