The past few days have been very exciting for us. We have been able to watch our friends go to Eastern Europe to go see their new baby. In fact, they will be seeing our 2 babies as well. When they send back pictures of where they are it makes everything so real for us. This is where we will be in a few months.
As we wait for their emails we try to imagine ourselves in their shoes. We try to place ourselves there at this moment. The excitement they must feel as they walk up to see their daughter for the first time, and to hug her for the first time. I really just cant wait until we get to that day.
We still have people who really do not understand this adoption at all. I guess for us it was simply because we felt that God was telling us to do this, but how do you explain something like that to people who don't really have the same beliefs as you. They do not understand that God really does speak to people..... God does really have a purpose for each of us and He calls us to respond!
I'm hoping that in the end, when we finally have our babies here with us, people will see that God was in this. Maybe then they will see the love we have and the hearts we have for these helpless children. You see, we've learned that no matter what, this journey we've chosen will have an impact on those around us. We believe that these two special children will not only bless our family, but everyone around us and for that..... we thank God!
