It's been over a month

Well it's been over a month since we got our referral call.We will not get to make our first trip until after the holidays.The waiting has been so hard I look at her sweet little picture constantly it does not help that in her picture she is pouting as to say please come get me! I will say that time has been going by pretty fast and with thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays coming we will be pretty busy so that should help time fly.We are hoping to make our first trip in January,and are praying to have her back around March or April so hold on our little angel we are coming for you as quick as we can!

In one week

I am proud to say that in one week I was able to update our home study, update all four of our medicals, get Lil Johnny an ID and fingerprinted and I even survived a slumber party for Paige's 11th birthday.But no the clothes still are not done! lol

Where to start?

OK so we decided we are going to take our little girl to Russia with us so this means we have to go get her a passport.On top of that it is time to update our home study so you know what that means new medicals,update fingerprints,new employment and much much more.Little Johnny is now 18 so he has to be fingerprinted (that should be fun) if you know him you would know this is not going to be fun and during all of this Paige has her 11th Birthday this weekend and Lil Johnny has senior portraits that have to be done.Hmmm where do I start!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life.
But those who make their journey home across time & miles,
growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,
are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us
by God's very own hands.

By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared" - Author Unknown

I am finding that waiting is getting much harder these days.I can't wait to see her little face and kiss her little cheeks.I know the meaning of waiting it took me about five years and two miscarriages to get pregnant with my little girl and it was all worth the wait as I know this will be also.So I will just keep praying that I hear something soon and that god looks over our soon to be daughter until we can be together.

I have never:Checked my e-mail,checked the mail,taken my phone with me,went to the notary,got my fingerprints taken or been to the Dr as much as I have in the last 8 months.Every time the phone rings I think it's THE CALL.I will continue to pray we hear something soon.

In Gods time:

In God's time
A million years might only be a single day
And everything He does gets done His own way
In God's time
And in God's time
You'll find that certain someone you've been praying for
And they'll be everything you dreamed of and a little more
In God's time
Oh but no one knows
Not you or me
It might be tomorrow or it might never be
Oh but don't lose faith
Put it in His hands
'Cause it might be that He might have a bigger plan
Than you had in mind
Miracles happen
In God's time
