We have got news!

I am writing this from my office. My eyes are filled with tears and my heart with gratitude to God and to all of you that have been such an important part of this journey.

Thank you so very very much for your prayers.

We felt so surrounded by love that I have no words and all the prayers truly helped us survive the last days filled with anxiety..

We are going to be parents of a baby very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have been approved by our agency to adopt!!!!!!!!!!!

But not only this: Without our knowledge the agency submitted all our papers to the governement adoption agency weeks ago and we have the official document.

The most important one, which we thought we still needed to wait for a few more days.

Normally this document it given after the agency has approved us. We did not know it, but they felt we were a strong enough case they did not wait.

And the date of this document is an amazing one.

The MOST IMPORTANT DATE for our adoption other than they day when the baby is born is actually when this document is granted.

With this document you are officially a parent in Mexico.

The date of this document is: May 31st. THE DAY OF THE VISITATION.

I have no words for the gift this is. A day full of meaning in our IF journey, a day of blessings, a day of Mary.

One that so deeply speaks to me today, when I found out I will be a mother soon.

"Mary rose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe (that's little John the Baptist) leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she exclaimed with a loud cry, 'Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, when the voice of your greeting come to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord!"'

Today no better prayer of thanks to God than the Magnificat. Said by Our Lady on this same feast day.

"My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has

regarded the low estate of his handmaiden

For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;

for He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name.

And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation.

He has shown strength with His am, He has scattered the proud in the

imagination of their hearts,

He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree.

He has filled the empty with good things, and the rich He has sent empty away.

He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy, as He spoke

to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever."
