ULTRASOUND PHOTOS (yes, this post is what you are thinking)

We had our ultrasound today!!! (That's for you Bmer.) :)

Today at 3 p.m., we received a call from Terra Bailey (who works on behalf of the Ethiopia program with America World). And can I just tell you, I had so grown used to this waiting thing, that my heart doesn't jump with every phone call anymore. No, I didn't recognize the phone number. And when she stated, "this is Terra with America World".... I almost replied with, "who?". I know, I'm pathetic. But then she tells me they have our referral. Jaw to floor. We do???? Really, we do????

She proceeds to tell me all about our 10 month old son. I wish I could tell you more - but I can't. In our email with photos and medical reports, it strictly tells us that we cannot release any information about our son until further notice. Grrrrrrrr..... Killing me!!!

So, we await said further instruction. Until then, will you please pray for Malachi. Pray for his health, pray for his safety, pray for his heart to rest in the Hands of the Almighty. Pray for us as we wait for him to come home. (Provi was so excited when she saw the photos that she began to jump up and down.)

Oh, and for some reason, Sam thinks his name should no longer be Malachi, or his given African name, but rather - Ronny. Why??? We have no clue. But hey, big brother is entitled to his opinion. :) Speaking of big brother, our beautiful new son looks strangely like his older brother...just with darker skin. Malachi has the Britton Eyes! He is beautiful and handsome all at the same time!

I love how often you can see similar physical characteristics in a an adopted child to other family members. God is so good to us to give us confirmation that yes this is the one I planned to be in YOUR family. Congratulations! We're praying for court miracles!
