So close

This time next week, we will be a family of 5!!!   I will have 3 children.  I can't believe that this is really about to happen.  God has been so faithful to us through this adoption.  As we finish packing and say our goodbyes, it's very emotional.  We are so overwhelmed by the support from our family and friends.  It is very humbling to know that so many are praying for us.  I have truly felt God's comforting arms holding us up and getting us through these last few days.  Each and every prayer means so much to us.

Please pray especially for our Lily.  Her whole world is about to change.  The only life she's ever known will be gone in just a few short days.  She won't realize immediately that her Mama and Daddy will love her forever and will always protect her.  Pray that she'll have a smooth transition, that she'll know she's exactly where she belongs. 

Pray that this sweet smile and the twinkle in her eyes will return quickly after she becomes a part of our family. 

These pictures were taken a few weeks ago and we were thrilled to get them from another family last night.  So excited to be so close to finally holding this little beauty in my arms!!


  1. Glad to know she will be joining your family soon. The pictures are very current, they are from Nov 15th! Good luck and safe travels on your journey.
