Today is Day 8 of our waiting period. Every day a step closer to stepping onto that airplane, flying over the big pond, and walking two new sons, brothers, grandsons, nephews into their FIRST HOME!!! The WAITING can be brutal when you are missing home~hubby, children, family, friends, & bed. Ha! But then I walk through those orphanage gates and get the death grip hug from Charlie and the cuddle hug from Levi, I am reminded that these two little human beings that God created are worth the WAIT... The amazing part of the whole journey is the people God places in your path and the situations that you never would have had the blessing of being a part of it if you were not just WAITING. We have been blessed to meet more than 12 other families that are adopting as well. Families that are on the same page as you, families that "Get It" and yes other families that have 4, 7, 10, 14 other children! Families that share the same heart....God's heart:) I have been so fortunate to stay with sweet friends that we met on our first trip over. American missionaries that are here making such an impact for God. I am so blessed by there mission and there compassion. I have visited hospitals full of beautiful children!! Children that need a Mommy & Daddy. Children longing to know what it is like to be held and loved. I have had amazing moments with God and My heart has been blessed through praying for other families struggling through this crazy process called ADOPTION! My prayer for so many loving families is that you would step out in faith and remember that Adoption is part of God's plan, and that one of these sweet face's could be cuddled up in your home instead of sleeping in an orphanage or being sent away to an institution to live out their very short little life:(
Everyday I see these two little ones along with many others,and I long for them to have a HOME!!!
Are YOU my Mommy & Daddy????
This little guy is so Stinkin cute!! He seems so cuddley and calm. He is 2yrs old and would make such an amazing son. I just wanna kiss him everytime I see him!
