So yesterday, I received a call from my agency saying that we are officially "logged-in" to China!  Yay!  It's hard to believe we are finally at this point!  It's hard to describe all the emotions that I am feeling.  I'm excited... anxious...nervous...

Now, we wait.  We may wait a week, a month, or possibly longer.  For the last five months, we have been waiting on the paper work.  Now, we wait for a picture of our sweet baby.  A much more exciting wait, I must say!  I wonder what she will look like, or how old she will be.  I wonder what her personality is like.  I wonder, if she is being held and loved, or if she is alone and scared...These are just some of the thoughts that go through the mind of  a mom waiting for her baby that is half way around the world.  These are the thoughts that make me so thankful that I know our God has her life in His hands.  He is watching over her, protecting her, and loving her.  Even though I am here and she is there.

Hold it together

"You hold everything together by the word of Your immovable power."  As I sit here writing this blog and listening to music, those are the words I hear.  It is so comforting to know that everything happening now and over the next few months with our adoption of our precious baby girl, is in His complete control.  I don't need to hold it together because He will! 

Yesterday was an exciting day for us.  Our paper work is now officially off to China.  We had a slight delay last week, but things are now moving forward!  We are praying and hoping to be logged-in over the next week or two.  Once that happens we wait for our match! 

It is all suddenly becoming much more of a reality.  Do I have concerns or worries?  Of course, but I love that I don't have to hang onto them.  I can hand them over to the One that will "hold everything together".  But much more than my worries and concerns is my complete overwhelming excitement to know who this little angel, that we are about to be so blessed with, is!!!
