Joy! Joy! Joy!!!

I got the wonderful news today - we got the grant!!! Not only did we receive a grant, but they gave us the highest amount allowed - $5,000! The organization who gave us the grant is called "A Child Waits". www.achildwaits.org
They are the nicest people and they have been absolutely wonderful to work with.

I don't think I realized how stressed I have been until I heard the news. I think I have been holding onto a big ball of worry inside of me for quite a while now. I haven't been sleeping, my stomach has been hurting, I've been getting headaches. Last night I had a nightmare that I was lost in a foreign country with no money and people were chasing me. Today I feel totally at peace, as if God was saying, "See, I told you it would all work out! This is supposed to happen! These girls are meant to be your daughters!"

Thank you all so much for your comments and your prayers!!

I have to give a BIG thank you to my wonderful mom too. I could not have done this without her!

I may have to go eat some celebratory chocolate!
