This last weekend was the weekend we celebrated sweet girlies birthday.
Let me just say, I was a bit emotional. I can’t believe she is a year old.
It seems like we just were in Africa meeting her for the first time.
She has been with us 6 months now..it has been an amazing 6 months..I would not change a thing.
She has been an unbelievable blessing in our life.
These last few days I have been preparing to bring her brother home.
Packing, repacking, making list, making new list, writing out to do list for Lilly etc.
I am a nervous wreck thinking of being away from our baby for so long.
But her daddy will be with her so I know she will be well taken care of.
My heart aches for our son a gazillion miles away.
My heart aches for the little hard life he has already endured.
I pray daily for his heart, that God would prepare it for his new family.
That God would wipe out every negative hurtful experience he has had.
That he will feel the love of his mommy, daddy, brother, sisters and grandparents.
That he NEVER feels alone again.
I pray that God would get us there quickly and swiftly.
The emotions I have are all over the place…
I pray they will calm down as I near my time to go.
We still have alot to raise to make this happen (travel cost, remainder to attorney, lodging, food, all the fees in country) with a total of about $8,000 still needed.I hate putting all of our stuff out there, but it”s reality.
I get emotional thinking about it, but I do know that God has it under control.
He provided before, He will again.
I’ve been listing items on eBay like a mad women. Selling jewelry..doing what I can to help bring in the money.
I still have my 150 Cuff Campaign going on. (I have sold about 15 cuffs so far)
Now is a great time to start thinking of all those gift for Christmas.
What better way then to buy handmade and help bring home an orphan.
