Thank you Thank you Thank you.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all of your comments and best wishes - we've been simply overwhelmed by all of the comments and emails!

In the coming days, I'll share more about 'the call' and a few other things percolating in the old brain box, but for now, I'll simply say that we're so blessed by these circumstances, and by all of the good friends who are celebrating with us!!

Stay tuned...more to come.

With our thanks,

Ruth...also for Geoff, Matthew, Mathewos, and Elfnesh


  1. I reread your "marking a moment in time" posted a scant 4 hours before you received the news...who knew how much that line, "Yesterday, our story was a little different, and tomorrow it will have changed again" would hold true. Bask in the wonderful knowledge of your children who wait for you.

  2. Still celebrating with you !!!!!!!!!!

    lots of love

  3. So awesome! Your news, along with the others have really boosted my spirits at the end of this LOOONG holiday. I was starting to get so down that we'd seen another lag in referrals and I have been a bit of a grump. Now, I am much more fun to be around, so thanks!!!!!!!


  4. Amazing stuff!!! We go away for the weekend, and look what happens!!!

    So super stoked for you - I actualy love Elfnesh - so pretty.

    SUPER happy for you, Ruth!!!\


  5. Thanks to all of you!!

    Nicky, I should have asked you to go away for a weekend a lot sooner if this was going to be the result...if only I'd thought of it!!


  6. HI Ruth,

    I hope you have found a little bit of sleep but really who needs it when your heart is filled with joy.

    I keep having these little moments in m day where I stop and have to remind myself that is is TRUE Ruth has a referral yes of two ! It is so funny but your news still is floating in a a dream like state it has not fully sunk in.

    I can imagine it must be the same for you , I often think of those moments after a referral when you finally fall asleep and then that moment when you are half awake and remember again that it is true and not a dream , ahhhhhhhh enjoy.


    ps who all along no matter what you said was also cheering for a girl , I could not make that feeling go away.
