Almost 4 years of waiting. . . .

You already have enough.
You have tried this before.
You can't possibly teach one more.
It costs too much.
You have too many children.
Where would you put one more?
You have tried this before.
You are already too busy.
How could you handle it?
It would be too hard on the other children.
God has already shut other doors.
It would be way too hard.
You have tried this before. . . .
But there are 147 million orphans in the world. . .
Waiting, waiting, waiting. . .
Wouldn't all the disappointments of the past
Be worth one precious child?
One waiting orphan
For one waiting family?
Put together by God's sovereign design?
We are expecting from China!
Thank you, Lord,
we have PA for a precious 2 year old boy!

CHILLS from head to toe! What a sweet sweet announcement, Rebekah. What a sweet sweet God. What a sweet, sweet son.
All this talk of sweetness makes me need some chocolate. Oh did I tell you? Chocolate is very necessary for adoption from China. Not sure if that's in your dossier preparation material or not.
