Happy Birthday, Sophia!

Today, December 20, is our daughter's third birthday.  Three years ago today our daughter's birth mother chose life for Sophia, and while things may not have gone smoothly in the months thereafter, we will be forever grateful to the woman who bore our little girl and gave her life.  We are also so thankful for the two foster families who have been involved in our daughter's life over the last three years.  We know she has been loved and cared for by so many people in her short life.  While we wish we were with her on this special day, we know that she is in good hands, and, by the time she turns four, she will be with us, her forever family!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Sophia!  We love you!

To Sophia, With Love

Yesterday I mailed out our third care package to Sophia.  It included items for her third birthday later this month, and for Christmas, both for Sophia and her dear foster family.  We are so blessed to have a wonderful family taking care of our daughter right now.  I'm guessing that we will be sending at least one more care package before we travel, since Chinese New Year is in February (February 14, to be exact...easy to remember this year!) and gifts are customary on that day.  But hopefully we will then be traveling soon after that so we can take any other gifts in person and love on our sweet daughter face to face!  Please continue to pray for the funds to come in for our travel expenses...we know God will provide in His time and in His way!

Waiting and praying...

* ...friends of ours leave for Taiwan to meet their 3-yr. old daughter for the first time!  Please pray for the Thomasson family!

* ...I made another $200 towards the $7000 we need for our travel expenses...every little bit helps!  I still have a few ornaments and lots of cookbooks if you are interested!

* ...I received another quilt square for Sophia's blessing quilt...have you sent yours?

Thank you, Lord, for a good day...and may Sophia have had the same!
