Flowers for Jill

This morning at worship..I noticed the bulletin announcement: The altar flowers were given by (insert our names) in honor of their adopted daughter Jillian's second birthday. My dear man did this and didn't mention it to me. Tears welled up in my eyes. Tears because her daddy loves her so already and he thinks of her all the time. Tears because I really don't want to miss her second birthday. I want to be with her on Wednesday. I WANT HER HOME!! I WANT HER TO FEEL OUR LOVE AND IT STINKS THAT WE ARE STILL WAITING!! REALLY STINKS.. We are still waiting on the government to deliver the letter sent two weeks ago. It's holding us up considerably and it probably means that we won't be with her by Easter. God is sovereign. God has a plan, but right now it just hurts to miss her so much. Trusting God and the knowledge that He is planning for her to be united with us in just the right time. Though this momma is really wishing that the time was now!!

Please pray that the letter will arrive tomorrow. We need it to submit to the consulate in Guangzhou before we can begin the wait for travel approval. OH the waiting...

  1. Leslie,

    We got our NVC letter on Friday. We had gotten our I797 last Monday. I couldn't believe that it came that quickly. So I am praying that we will make our timeline to be in and out of China in May.
