first time.
Isn't God amazing?
My sweet friend Rachelle made this comment in a email recently;
It is such a journey. Be ready to see God show up everywhere.

That's exactly what He's doing.

How wonderful!!! Less then a month to go! Where are you staying in Shanghi? I think I need to see God show up in my life right now. I feel confused about everything. It really does my heart good to see this day has finally come for you.

Okay, I am really loving the excitement going on here and the picture of that jet flying in the heavens, well, bring that baby home with you will be heaven. I hope you post some pictures of the kids when they see her at the airport. I am doing many **happy sighs** and happy feet for you here. I love a good story, I really love it.

Hugs and Love, Laurie in Ca.

Rachelle said...

Counting the days with you, love the picture. Believe me, as soon as you see that American flag in the customs area.........WOW what a surge of emotions! Gives me goose bumps just thinking about it. Try to take a picture there. It's one I didn't get, and regret. We were rushed.

Thanks for dropping by with your lovely comments today. Nice to meet you Kristy. Sounds like you are on a great adventure. May the Lord direct and guide all your steps, till you are joined with your precious child. She is a charming little peanut. I nicknamed my granddaughter Pudding Toes, whose pictures plaster my blog. :] We are so blessed to have Eden in our lives. Parenting was amazing for me, a stay home mom of 3. Now getting to be a grandmother is totally different amazing experience. My daughter also plans on adopting down the road. There are so many families I meet these days that have their hearts set on adoption. I can’t help but think God is up to something. He has obviously put this on so many hearts.

Hey Kristy,

Are we there yet?:) That plane up there has been flying for a long time and I want to see Miss Ellie, so do you I know.!!! Just checking in to see if you are feeling any better and I sure am praying the kiddos don't come down with it too. But then again, they are probably the ones who gave it to you! They can be so germie, can't they. Double check your bags and make sure you haven't forgotten anything important:)

Love you and waiting with you,

PS. Is it cold enough yet? Sheesh!
