Good news today!

Hooray! I got great news today with the adoption. The typhoon put some delay in the process but it is moving forward again! Hopefully I will be traveling soon! Thank you to everyone for the prayers, well-wishes, and happy thoughts. It is so wonderful to be surrounded by such support!! I have met some amazing people along this adoption journey--made some life-long friends! And my family have been such a blanket of warmth and support. I see light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm coming baby girl! Praise God!

Relief

What a relief today was. A typhoon hit Taiwan this past weekend and Love Bug's town was hit pretty hard. Of course, I was worried, worried, worried. I got word this morning that the babies are safe (so is our caseworker and all the caregivers). Thank goodness!!

I pray for a smooth recovery process for all the people of Taiwan affected by the storm.

On a lighter note: The nursery is complete...I just love it! I can't stop walking in there and just standing and dreaming of seeing my little baby girl smiling from her crib! It is my new favorite place to sit and talk to God.

I'm coming baby girl!

Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

It has finally happened. I have my Taiwan court decree!!!! I am a mom! I have been on my journey to motherhood for almost 3 years now. I am speechless and still in shock. I feel like I am living in a dream or watching this all happen to someone else. My heart is BUSRTING with joy!

Today is my birthday and God gave me the most precious gift.......

I promise to treasure this child always.
I promise to love this child always.
I promise to be the very best mom I can be.
I promise to devote all to my child.
I promise to help my child have a relationship with our Lord.
I promise to honor my child's heritage and culture.
I promise to always remember her birthmom and keep her in my daily prayers.
I promise to give my all to her happiness, health, and well-being.
I promise to always remember what an amazing gift I have been given.

Thank you Lord. I stand in amazement everyday!

I am ready to get on that plane! Please join me in prayer for a quick AIT appointment. I am ready to hold my daughter.
