I can't even tell you how many times J and I have said to each other and others that we simply can't wait until you are here. There are so many people who are so excited to meet you and the love and support we have received to get you here is simply mind blowing.
This whole process is so much like pregnancy, only much more comfortable :-) We just wait in anticipation of meeting you and knowing you however I just have to keep reminding myself that these moments are just as special. The moments that we prepare for you And just fully submit to God's leading our lives. It is such a life lesson.
My mind keeps going to the same thought – that I just hope you know, even though you are halfway around the world and have never met us, that we love you already. I just hope that somehow you can feel it. And I've even prayed it. And then I remember that as much as we love you, God loves you infinitely more. Similarly, that love is there regardless of whether you know He is there or not.
The future is uncertain for all of us. We know we are being called to do this and welcome you into our home and our hearts which we already have. As for adoption…who Knows? We have fully put our trust in God and are just really enjoying the ride. Right now it seems impossible, But we know that's when God works best – when things are impossible to us.
We will be honest with you from the beginning- our hearts are open to it and if you want to officially be part of our family we know God will make it happen. Regardless of whether you legally become our daughter or not, you are already a part of our family.
My wish for you in this experience is that you are able to come here and enjoy time with our family, Be part of the decision-making process led by God as to where we go next, and regardless of where that road takes all of us, Know that no matter what you are His child No matter where you are.
E (and J and C and G) :)
