there is no news (UPDATE)

Update: We got word today that the situation we submitted ourselves for (an unknown gender baby due in May) was matched with another family. There is still one "maybe" out there, so we'll see what happens. And, in a random twist, we ended up buying a minivan last week because my husband's car is on the way out and we came across a steal of a deal. So, now I am all ready with a carseat, a diaper bag, a crib, and a minivan. All we need is the baby!

One of the presents I got for Christmas was this awesome diamond (fake) ring from my husband. While it isn't any everyday ring by any means, it was great for a wedding we recently attended. I received many compliments from other ladies at the reception and I ended up staring at it for a while.

I set up my tripod when I got home and took this lovely and oh-so-stylish photo of the ring. And my giant hand. And the intensely bright sunlight.

But I love it.

In other news, there is no news. We haven't heard anything about the situation we submitted our booklet for and in the other situation, the two weeks should be up soon and maybe we'll hear something about the 8 month old. I talked to the referral woman today and I asked her how long they typically give the birth mothers to make a decision about adoptive parents. She said that they won't rush anyone and I totally agree with that, but I want to know about her choice! Even if it isn't us, I want to know!

So, keep praying for us. Keep praying for us! Please!
