Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday post just below - New update on Allie Grace 10:42 AM

Morning Friends!

The adoption is still not exactly final. I really don't know how much of this I'm supposed to say or not to say so I'm trying to be informative without saying something that they might want kept private. I CAN say that the hold up has NOT been with the birth parents. (Which is a HUGE PRAISE) It's all legal mumbo-jumbo on the hospital end. (They weren't being very helpful at all to put it nicely) Allie Grace should LEGALLY BELONG to her new Mommy and Daddy by the end of the day. She will HOPEFULLY be HOME by then as well. I'll check back when everything starts to fall into place. As it looks... it's a DONE DEAL.. just some minor kinks to get through this morning.

We're PRAISING GOD that she's a HEALTHY baby girl! They could find NOTHING wrong with her - nothing at all. Now we'll pray for these things....

- Please pray that anything legal will be worked through quickly.
- Pray that the hospital won't hold them up and will discharge her IMMEDIATELY
- Pray for safe travels for Mama, Papa, and Allie Grace as they come HOME!

THANKS SOOOOO MUCH for your prayers!!!

I'll check back as soon as things start happening.

Hello Friends...

This Thankful Thursday I am VERY THANKFUL for the new bundle of JOY that's become part of the family. I still don't have much to tell... but we're OH-SO-GRATEFUL! For those of you who may be new here... my sister-in-law (Elizabeth) and her hubby Jason have been in the process of adopting their first child. Little Allie Grace was born on Easter Sunday! There was some question about her health so she was taken to another hospital (about 2+ hours from here). Her adoption SHOULD be final TONIGHT.. however... there's a little more to this story...

The "Happy Dancers" have their shoes on and are READY to JUMP and SHOUT... only we still don't "officially" know anything. The hospital that Allie Grace was taken to has a "no cell phone" policy so phone calls between them and home have been few and far between. I can honestly say I still don't know anything. Our 72 hour wait is up... and I'm assuming that no news is GOOD news... however I won't jump the gun and make any official announcements UNTIL we hear from the proud new Mama & Papa. You guys hang in there... I PROMISE to update as SOON as I know something. Until then.. our dancing crew is warming up... Heehee...

oh my gosh congrats! I love hearing abotu adoption stories. My husband was adopted and we are so thankful for people who adopted and for the people who choose to put their kids up for adoption when they can't provide the best life! So glad for you! Hopefully everything will work out!

lori said...

Praying for the GOOD NEWS that I hope you'll bring at day's end!!


"'s the hardest part..."

peace while you wait..

Melanie said...

Tonya, Thanks for the update. I can't hardly wait until I see the words from you saying the adoption is final.

jenmom said...

Hey! It's Jennifer from Florida! Praying that all goes smoothly with you brother and his wife's adoption. I have a background in Social Work, so tell them to stay on the hospital's social worker's back or they will take their time on all the red tape and there is alot of it!!!!!
I'll be cheking back in tonight!

Stephanie said...

I hope by now that all of the legal mumbo jumbo has been resolved and that baby is HOME! As K.C. and the Sunshine Band sang in the seventies,"I wanna put on my, my, my dancing shoes!"

Thanks for the tutorial, you were a big help. When is your book, Blogging for Dummies going to be finished? Hehe! I followed your advice to the letter and spent ten minutes trying to find the chainlink above the post. Then, it finally occurred to me that I probably needed to sign in so that I could make changes!!! LOL!

Still praying that Allie Grace gets to settle into her new digs TODAY!

Nen said...

i tagged you on my blog!! you aren't obligated to do it... just thought it was fun to see what others do!

Lynn said...

Wow Tonya,

Please pray that anything legal will be worked through quickly.
- Pray that the hospital won't hold them up and will discharge her IMMEDIATELY
- Pray for safe travels for Mama, Papa, and Allie Grace as they come HOME! Lord, I echo each of these words and ask for your hand in these lives. I ask in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

Since I am kinda late getting around to Thankful Thursday post - I already took a peek at the out-come. I am so glad that all worked out well.
I hope that the papers are final by now.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Blessings to you and yours.
