Today's sign

When I am going thru any major event in life-I look for signs from God. I think most people do, right?

Well over the last 2 1/2 years (almost 3) of my adoption journey, I see signs everywhere. Some people call them coincendences...not me, they are signs! God is speaking to us.

My sign today:
I recently purchased the furniture for Love Bug's nursery. It is still in boxes in my garage waiting to be put together. As I was pulling out of my garage I noticed the printing on the dresser box. It read "Imported from Taiwan-Country of origion: Vietnam"

So, basically this dresser originated in Vietnam, went to Taiwan, and is now in America in my house.....for those of you familiar with my adoption journey, you will see why I just smiled when I read that!

Happy Day!

Happy Day today! My agency case worker is in Taiwan right now helping to spread the ministry and let the women in south Taiwan know of the birth home. She sent me a few pictures and some updates on my little Love Bug's personality! My heart is full of love right now :) :)

Still praying for the judge's ruling! I cannot wait to meet my daughter.....

Lord, thank you for the update today. I can feel Your presence in this journey. I trust in You and follow You. I pray You lead me to my child in Your perfect timing. Amen.

4. I have everything ready for the nursery.
5. I begin school again very soon and my classroom will be in order and ready for my absence.
6. The cheerleading program is all under the control of my wonderful coaching staff.
7. I am emotionally ready to be a mom!
8. I am spiritually ready to be a mom!
9. I've been waiting over 2 years and 7 months - I'M BEYOND READY!!!

This is all I need:
1. I need my first ruling
2. I need my second/final ruling
3. I need travel approval
4. I need to hold my beautiful baby in my arms!

Lord, Thank you for all the blessings you have given me in my life. I pray that I hear from my agency soon. I pray that the Taiwan judge makes this adoption case a priority and issues the first ruling soon. It has been almost 7 weeks since my court hearing and I am anxious to hear good news soon. Lord thank you for bringing this baby girl into my life. I am completley in love with her and cannot wait to hold her, smell her, kiss her, love her. I pray that with your guidance I will raise her to be an amazing woman. Lord, hold her in your loving arms and let her feel your presence each day. Lord, please continue to move this adoption in the right direction-smoothly and quickly. Amen.
