Court File Number!!!!

We received the most unexpected call this morning.

MoT phoned us with our court file number.

And then after hanging up, we hugged, I shook, and I cried.

And cried.

It's just a five digit number.

It's nothing to write home about. Except that it is. It came earlier than we expected which is shocking. We were quoted that 4-6 weeks after our referral we could hopefully expect a court number or date. We are at 3 1/2 weeks post-referral-acceptance.

Our court file number means we have been officially logged into court and are waiting to be assigned a court date. I told Noah it's like standing in line in class on your way to go somewhere and you're just not certain when you'll get there yet.

I truly believe this came so quickly because of prayer.

I do.

And all I could do after hanging up the phone (and breathing deep) was repeat words of thanksgiving and then pray that our daughter could feel them. That somewhere in that small six month being, there would be a sense of comfort.

We were also told that we should receive our court date call soon...but right now we are simply relishing in this news. And when that call comes we'll rejoice again.

One step at a time we move towards our child.

By grace we continue.
