Soon

I'm not going to lie. I want to be on a plane to China TODAY. Realistically it might be another 4 weeks before we go (maybe more, hopefully less). I'm praying for a miraculously quick travel date. I believe God can answer that prayer although He might not.

Over the weekend I've been at peace with the timing whatever that might be, even if it means waiting longer than I want to. I trust His timing. It even started to feel like I could do this waiting thing with some measure of patience.

And then I logged on to my favorite Chinese blog and was greeted with this heading:

The Four Children Soon to the United States

Followed by these photos (Suhn is in the pink coat and hat):






And all that patience flew out the window. They are expecting us soon and I don't want to disappoint.

We're coming as soon as we can sweet girl! We are aching to bring you home! We have prepared a special room just for you. We pray for you every day, you are never far from our thoughts. Your brothers and sister ask about you often. They want you home today.

Soon baby girl, we will be together. I know it will be a transition for you, how can you even begin to imagine the changes that are coming your way. I pray you will feel at home quickly; that you will feel loved and safe in our arms. I know it will take time, but know this...

Home is waiting for you.
We are coming soon sweet girl, we are coming soon.

I popped over from We Are THAT Family and I think we both live in Greensboro and are friends with Emily. I think. Anyway, I linked up too, and my blog is the Two Plus One Equals Three. My husband and I are going through domestic adoption and waiting to be matched. I will add you to my sidebar and follow your journey. Here's hoping it is soon!
