Of course I was surprised/excited about this and told her yes, we would take him/her (I forgot to ask which :) ). I asked if she needed me to come pick them up and she said she didn't know if they were going to place "him" today or wait until after the weekend so she would call and then call me back.
I was at Mark & Cindy's house so they along with Shelly were all there for this call. It was so exciting! My heart leapt into my throat...and then Shannon called back and told me that the baby had already been placed by another agency. My heart then felt like it plunged from my throat to my shoes. It is amazing how one minute you can be SO excited and then you are some how supposed to go back to feeling as if nothing just happened.
I am still excited though. I am excited we got A CALL! I am excited our name is obviously on a list! I am excited that "God works all things together for good to those that LOVE him, for those that are CALLED according to HIS PURPOSE!" That verse echoed in my head as I drove home thinking about how we "just missed it". We didn't just miss anything, it is good that "he" was placed with someone else. It was according to God's purpose. And that feels really good. Maybe not in my flesh, but in my spirit it is amazing :)
