Still Waiting...

I know of two dear girls that need to get home! They have watched their friends leave their home town one by one. It is their turn to have a forever Momma and Babba! It is their turn to have a family and a home to call their own! We are day 77 and praying that our LOA will come soon!

I am making it harder on myself by counting each day and anticipating it's arrival. I need to just trust our Lord that it will happen in his perfect timing (BUT, it doesn't hurt to storm heaven with a little old request- so please pray with me)!

The pictures we have recieved of them are of two girls transformed. The are smiling and happy.

Four years ago these two little children were found together in a courtyard of a government building. They did not speak a word to anyone. They did not make eye contact with anyone. I believe they were in shock. In an instant their world had changed drastically. It is our belief this was done out of love and in order to save their two precious daughters.

Between Hope and Grace foster homes and HTS preschool the pictures alone tell us their story. We are so grateful to these organizations. They gave our daughters everything they needed to grow and put smiles on their faces. Now it is time for them to take the next step and have a forever family. We are so thankful the Lord has chosen us to be their family! I can hardly wait to love them, teach them and just be with them!

They have a family waiting for them! Especially two very excited sisters that are ready to welcome them home!

WOW!! You go girl...I'm so excited for you! Wish it was us, but the time is not right yet. We've learned that things happen in His time (not ours)...that's really hard to do! Much love...it's hard to believe it was just over a year ago that we were headed to China, too, and just missed each other.
