All I Want for Christmas

If you had asked me when we started our paperwork officially in June 2012 for Gia, Mia, and Annabella, BY FAITH, I would have told you that at least Gia would be home by Christmas.

Fast forward 6 months, and I realized as I was driving to the airport with my good friend Cheri, to celebrate the homecoming from China of our good friends April and Patrick and their two new kiddos, that I no longer have a timeline for when our girls will be home. Because we have not yet been matched, even if we WERE matched this December, the earliest we could be in China would be Easter... this certainly wasn't my timeline.

I have come to accept that it isn't my timeline anyway... it truly is the Lord's timeline... He knows who our girls are and when their files will land in our hands.  

Oh how I long for the day that we will finally know who we will bring home and when and what their names will truly end up being. 

Thought I would post our first Lolly Wolly Doodle outfit that arrived last week for the 4 girls... I wasn't brave enough to have their names embroidered on their shirts, but I look forward to the day that I can have that done. Oooh I love this website!

JAMES 1:17 (NIV)
Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows.
