cha-cha-cha-changes

the phone rang thursday afternoon and it was "the call". the foster agency had a placement and was wondering if we were interested. after lots of file reading and more phone calls it was decided that this little boy and his social worker would come to our house on tuesday afternoon at 4:00 for a visit. this is just to see if everyone has good first impressions of one another, but i really can't think of any reason why in a short visit we would not take matthew in. he just turned four last month and has been in foster care for a year and a half. this has my mind reeling with all the life changes this will mean for our family and just as my head was swimming we got a call from our realtor (last night) who told us our offer on this house had been accepted! might as well do it all at one time, right?
this house is still in the village (our part of okc), about 2.1 miles from our current home. it is 3 bed/2 bath and 1644 square feet. it has more room than our current house and has two living areas which we are really excited about. we're dreaming of a piano room, a trampoline in the backyard, and just more space to love on kids in.

please pray for us, especially ari and noah as we slam them with transition. we will be having a goodbye tour of our current house and they have known about the possible foster placement, but it's just gonna be a lot of change for their little hearts to handle. we are excited about the new possibilities and will keep you posted:)
