A month of thankfulness.

Well, hello there, November!
It's nice to see you again!

My Facebook feed is filled with people writing what they're thankful for.
I love it.
But, since I average 1 status update every 2-3 months, 
I'd use up 6 years worth of updates in one month.
No can do.

But, I will try to post here.
It won't happen everyday, that's for sure.

But, today was special.
Today is worth delaying my Hulu watching to write about.

We received a call last Wednesday about a 5 week old baby girl.
Last Friday they chose us to be her foster family!

Baby Girl was in the NICU.
She was weaning off the drugs she was exposed to in utero.
For 6 days I visited her in the hospital.
I've spent hours holding her and praying over her.

Today they called and said she could come home!
I was shocked!
We were told "maybe Friday, more likely Monday".

We couldn't wait to get her out of there.
The NICU nurses are saints.
They have loved her and cared for her for 6 weeks now.
But, Baby Girl needs a mama; she needs a home.

So, today she went from this:

To this:

And for that I am incredibly thankful!
