If this is your first time here, please read my first post to understand what has happened over the last couple of months.

Well I did not exactly continue the next day.  Let's see where did I leave off.... the horrible phone call!  I sat there in shock and was not sure what to do??  My husband called our agency back and they said they were sorry and there was nothing they could do.  They also said they could watch the waiting child site and see if she becomes unlocked again but no guaranty.
After about 30 minutes I thought the Internet!!!  I went to every web forum I belong to and explained my story and gave her name. ( I did not know you cant put the child's name or SWI on the Internet forums.)  I sat and waited and checked my email every minute.  Within about 1 hour I got a email that said "I just received her file to review from my agency and I can help!"  Wow, the powers of the Internet!!!  The gal that emailed me never goes to the forum I posted the plea on and with minutes of my post the moderator remove her name and orphanage because it was against forum rules.  So the timing was perfect for her to be on that site, see my post before the baby's name was removed and to contact me!!!  God, works in wonderful ways!  We actually talked on the phone, she had Ava's file and was on her way to the doctor to review it.  After she read my post she decided to cancel her appointment and give the file back to her agency. (An Angel)  I called my agency to let them know and they watched the website for the next 24 hours so they could lock her file again!!  Her file was locked and we submitted all the paperwork and the rest is history!!
As I write this we are leaving in 3 1/2 weeks for China to bring home our beautiful girl!  Yikes,  I have so much to do, this will be the biggest list I will have every made. :-)  Please continue to follow our journey.
