Passing time

When I sent my LOI paperwork in wouldn't you know it, China was beginning their week long Trade Fair. So my waiting for PA did not even begin until 10-10- 2011. Sigh..... So I decided to begin sewing a birthday gift for my little girl. It is a cute little blue dress. The bottom has a lime green band with little cupcake print on it. It also has a matching hat.

We also spent time making some improvements in the front yard. We moved two and a half tons of pea gravel from the driveway to the front walkway.

Nathan worked so hard he had to lay down for a while.

We had some fun.

We have  more to do. I can't wait until it is complete. So as I wait I will accomplish many task.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ." Philippians 4:6-7

LOI is off to China. Bye come back soon with PA!!!!

I received an e-mail saying my LOI paperwork was sent to China today. Now I wait on pins and needles to see if we are approved. I have been praying that China will come to a decision quickly. This little girl needs to come home as soon as possible and begin therapy soon after. She has a lot going on with her medically and the sooner she gets here the better. I also begin to realize the ominous task of trying to fund raise for this adoption. "LORD, you brought this adoption to me, I know if it is your will then you will have a way to see that I am able to proceed." "Again I lift my concerns to you Father and ask that my path be clear and not cluttered with worries. Amen"
I posted a family picture of our little happy family. Quit a handsome group if I do say myself.

LOI paperwork is complete!

Let us rejoice and be glad in Him! I just sent the rest of my completed LOI paperwork to the adoption agency. I am so happy. Now, I pray that the CCAA will have a soft heart and allow this precious little girl to come home.  I wonder how long I will wait?  The good news is,  it is the beginning of a new week so I will be busy with work, kids, church, life...... So many things to do to keep my mind off of it. RIGHT? Like a child waiting for Christmas morning I will wait with heightened emotion. The Lord is moving for this little one. When I become anxious I will offer my inpatients to him. I will fill my thoughts with how the Lord has plans for her. Jeremiah 29:11" For I know the plans I have for this little girl," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper her and not harm her,  plans to give her hope and a future." I trust in this verse. I hold tight to the promise that the LORD gave me about this child.
I hope very soon I will post who this child is.
