Doubly-blessed this month! Tonight, we got a letter from a friend in China last month and saw Tian when he dropped in for a medical checkup.
He doesn't look too thrilled to have his picture taken, but he's just precious! Gotta love those pink shoes!
Today, I was reading a new friend's blog and she said this:
It is nearly impossible to put into words the longing I have for my little girl. It is so hard to know that she is mine, to love her so deeply, and to not be able to hold her. Imagine missing the first two years of your child’s life. I have no idea what she ate today. I wonder did she get any attention at all today? Has anyone ever rocked her to sleep or comforted her? I search online for history of her city and pictures of her orphanage. I search the location where she was found on google earth, anything just to have a piece of her. My heart longs for anything to hold on to while I wait.
Yes! I completely identify. Each picture is cherished. Relished. A true treasure. Seeing the boys grow via photos is bittersweet. I'm thrilled to catch any new glimpse of the boys and am so thankful for the updates, but it's also heart-wrenching. Each photo reminds me how much they are growing without Ken or me there to see it.
We are down to the last couple of months. We are trusting God, knowing that He has had these boys' lives in His hands since before they were knit in their birthmothers' wombs. He knew they were a part of our family. He knows the very day we will meet the boys. We can rest in that.
