Yeah!!! 14 months closer to Hannah! I can't help but wonder (numerous times) each day if I will hold my precious daughter in my arms within the next year? Part of me really believes so and yet part that is protective of my heart and says to prepare myself for a longer than anticipated wait. The Beijing Olympics (which begin 8/8/08) are an ever present concern. With our embassy being in Beijing I wonder how it might affect Canadian adoptions? Praying and trusting and reminding myself that God's timing is always perfect so the moment Hannah is placed in my arms is the exact moment God planned long, long ago! Yes, reminding myself of that makes me feel much better.
I love you Hannah! You're already loved and in my heart every moment of every day! I cannot wait for the day when you're in my arms too!
Love, Mommy xoxoxo
Home again with flowers purchased while away. What a nice treat it was to walk into my room each day and see these little flowers and be reminded (as if I needed reminding!) of Hannah!
I was up north at a ladies conference this past weekend and many asked how the adoption was going as they had learned last year that my file was in China. It was fun to have them ask and to tell them, 'Lord willing I'll be in China this time next year!' :o) Even better would be having Hannah with me and introducing her to some of the many, many....many people who have been praying for her! That will be wonderful!!
