A Light at the end of the tunnel

It will be two years, at the end of this year, since we started our adoption journey to Uganda and even longer since God put in on our hearts.
About 8 weeks ago we got a call that they were working on our adoption and that we were number 1 on the list. So currently they are working on getting children paperwork ready for those of us who are waiting.  My cousin is also adopting from there and she was told the same thing. How awesome would it be to be able to travel to Uganda with her and her husband as well!
So now we wait some more. We were told to be ready to travel any time from September-December (which probably means Jan- March 2015- everything has been taking longer than they say/hope) BUT there is a light at the end of our tunnel and I know my boy is there now! Oh my heart aches for him and I have a hard time sleeping at night, I am so excited and nervous all at once.  I will be traveling to Uganda with my husband, but I will be staying for 6 weeks and he will have to come back home for work. Its going to be a long, hard, exciting journey and I'm ready.

While I wait I am keeping busy and working on an adoption line of jewelry as well as custom orders and adding some new things to my etsy shop- Nat's Knapsack
All the proceeds are going to go towards our adoption. With me as a stay at home mom I want to do what I can to help and this is how I felt I could help.
So if you know of anyone looking for a special piece of jewelry and a good reason to shop, send them my way.
