Good News From a Far Country!!

"As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country." Proverbs 25:25


This scripture has been on the sidebar for a few months. Lately it has new meaning. We are now a family of SEVEN! Little Sister (who is actually a Big Sister to the Princess) is finally ours, officially and legally. We will travel sometime soon to meet her and file our I600. Then we just wait for approval and bring her home. I cannot wait to squeeze her and hear that giggle again!

There were a few days when I felt like this might not happen. But way more days when I knew it would because there was so much resistance. I struggle with having patience and faith when things are difficult. But I am stubborn, and she is our daughter, and I have my Father in Heaven to hold my hand when all I can do is reach out and hang on. I always make fun of J's impatience when we are driving, going through a line somewhere or waiting for something insignificant. But when it is something BIG like this adoption, and like Bugs' adoption, his faith never wavers and he seems to be able to wait as long as it takes without complaint. He knows the desired result and knows it will come. The "Dark Side" cannot sway his course. Master Yoda, he is much like.
