In more ways than one......;)
Life has been extremely busy these past few weeks.
Between the grief of losing a parent, the work and emotional load of organizing and sorting their lifelong belongings, and the anticipation of adoption and travel to China, I think I'm living in the "margins" of my life right now.
We are working beyond what we would normally *think* are our time and energy limitations in hopes that when we return home with our precious darlings perhaps it will be calm, normal (what's that?)or at least a new normal, and stable around here.
God is so faithful and teaching me to live day by day, sometimes hour by hour ;).
We have enjoyed celebrating a few things around here, such as Bigger Brother turning 13, Zheng Zheng turning 4, and Little Sister losing a top tooth.
We were so blessed again by our sweet friends at church as they gave us a baby/adoption shower. These dears have been unbelievable in their show of love throughout our many fundraisers, their support after Daddy's passing, and then with this fun and very helpful shower. We are blessed beyond belief with a church that values children and their arrival, whether the child is your first, your tenth, by the miracle of birth, or by the miracle of adoption.
In adoption news, we have now been waiting two weeks for travel approval. Hopefully, we will be getting a call soon! We are waiting in hopeful anticipation to see how the Lord continues to write our story.
