We received these Friday. She is getting so big! The last one looks like she's ready to fight......bring it on PGN! It seems like she has changed even more since the last time we saw her over a month ago. I guess that's what happens, though, when you are not there everyday to see her grow. I can't begin to express my longing to have her home with us. It is a hurt that runs deep and can only be healed by her coming home. We know she is very well cared for, and all of her needs are met by our wonderful FM. But WE want to do those things. WE want to be doing the daily needs stuff. WE want to be who she cries for in the middle of the night. WE want to be there when she falls and scrapes her knee(she is walking, or should I say running everywhere). WE want to be her PARENTS! Not just a distant memory of a family that comes every 3 months or so and visits for just a few short days. NO, WE want to be Mami and Papa fulltime. BUT, it is not about WE or US. It is about this beautiful little girl in which God has given us the opportunity to adopt. It is about what is in HIS will for our lives. It is about when the right time of her coming home will be. For many reasons, there are obstacles in our way, and we have to be patient and let God work them out. HE is mighty to Save!
