I still can’t believe that it is real. That we have seen our daughter’s face. That there is a real baby girl waiting for us in Ethiopia. I stare and stare at her sweet photo many times a day. Up until our referral last week, I was a pretty good wait-er. I knew that there would be a wait. It would all end some day. I was ok with it. It was a pure miracle that we were never waiting at the number 1 spot. Our referral call was 100% surprise. But now, now that I have precious eyes that stare back at me from my computer screen, my heart is longing. Longing to hold her, to smell her, to hear her giggle. That chair in her nursery is about to catch some tears as I plead with God to open the doors for a court date SOON.
The same day that we got her referral call, we signed the paperwork to accept her referral and mailed it off. Do you think we are excited? YES!!! Here are photos of the send off :)
I am SO excited that Maya has a big brother. As we were waiting for her, I knew that she would be a girl, that a little girl was who was to join our family from Ethiopia, but I always wanted her to have a big brother. Crazy how God makes dreams come true :)
