Well, it has been 1 week since our paperwork went to Honduras. It is amazing how fast the week went. I thought for sure that it would feel like forever. I talked with the founder yesterday and he said that it should have arrived. We will see how long it takes to translate, it is amazing how God has put a peace on my heart to be patient-something that can be very difficult for me. It helps that the business of getting ready for school is here. Last night I was out with Ariana and asked her what she was most excited about and what she was most nervous about getting her little sister. "Getting her little sister...and... getting her little sister." She said that she already has decided that when she gets to meet her she is going to get down on her level and plans to hand her a toy. She said that "she thinks it will be hardest to wait patiently for when she is willing to come to her".
Getting to read about friends of ours getting their daughter this week in China has been that time of reality to think about what it will possibly be like and gets the bug going a little more.
Little one, I am continually praying that God will be preparing your heart to join with our crazy family...that you are having people show you love.....that you have food to eat...that you have clothes to keep you warm...that you will see God's love for you and that we will be able to teach you about Jesus and how he died on the cross for you! Your daddy and I as well as your sisters love you so much even though we still don't know who you are. It is amazing to me to have such love for someone we haven't even met. How much greater our heavenly father loves you- you have been "fearfully and wonderfully made"... Ps. 139:14
We are looking forward to the day that we get to hold you in our arms and be united as the family that God had planned from the beginning of time.
