May 2013 has turned out to be one of the best months of the year for us. After what seems like forever waiting to be matched, we were finally matched with 2 children this past Friday afternoon. We are now officially pursuing the adoption of siblings, a boy and a girl. The boy is 30 months and the girl is 18 months. They were abandoned and are currently living in an orphanage in Kinshasa. We don't have any other info on them yet...even their names. Just their ages and a picture. While it will take months to get them to the United States and in our home, today in our hearts, they are already ours. So, as a recap, in less than 2 weeks, we have discovered we are going to have 3 kids under the age of 3. Lots of planning to do but so exciting. Feeling so blessed and thankful this weekend.
