DAY 116 in our wait and a belated Thank You!

First things First...Thank You secret pal. Each night I am going to take a picture to post of your most recent gift and each night I am dealing with the emotional upheaval of this wait and just don't get it done. I apologize. Your gift arrived when we came home from Lexington and was a wonderful and uplifting treat (much needed)!!! I love the onsie and jeans for Graeme and Lily has been sporting the cute flip flops and head bands and thinks that she is all that and then some! You asked for an update of sizes for both our little ones. Graeme is currently 25 pounds (with or without layers and layers of clothes...your guess is as good as mine but stay tuned because we may get another update) and he is 33.5 inches tall. I think he will be a little peanut but not quite as little as his older sister. At 4 1/2 years of age, Lily tips the scale at 30 pounds and is 38 inches tall. She is currently wearing mainly size 3 clothes, some 4s if they are made small. For pants and skirts, we pretty much have to have an adjustable waist or they fall off. She can easily wear her size 2 shorts from last summer!! She wears an 8 1/2 narrow in shoes (yes...hard to find but we manage). Thank you so much for always being so thoughtful and for always including Lily in your packages. She so looks forward to them each month. They are helping all of us with this WAIT.

So Day 116, I couldn't take it and called the agency again. CCAI is always wonderful and I just love talking to them even though they can't give me specific information because they don't have it. I know that they are pushing as much as they can to get it. They were told yet again that our paperwork is in process and should move quickly. China's idea of quickly and mine must be completely different. So here we wait and in China, he waits...keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I don't know if I can wait much longer!!!!

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, I am so sorry you are going through this. It truly gets hard to function . . . I had zero focus, and by the time ours came I'd "had it", as you know by reading my posts. I hope you don't mind if I share a verse with you.

"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you, Yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My victorious right hand."

Praying that He will give you strength and peace as you wait through this tough time. His victorious right hand will deliver your LOA, prayerfully soon!

Don't lose hope!
