I should be working on my home study items but instead I find myself daydreaming. About her. Is she born yet? Probably and most likely she is a few months old. I wonder if we will know her actual birthday. Then I wonder what she's doing and I look at my watch. I bet she's sleeping. China is a good 12 hours ahead of me after all! I wonder what her orphanage caretakers call her. I wonder if she's fussy or happy or quiet or loud. I wonder if she knows something's up. I wonder about her birth mom.
And then I've been wondering more practical things like crib or toddler bed? Which bedroom should be hers? What will we feed her? What will MaeBelle's reaction be to our new house guest (I suspect nothing but love and curiosity shown by lots of sniffs, licks and tail wags)?
There's so much to wonder and think about. It's pretty special and I can't wait to find out the answers. I have a feeling time will both creep and fly by.
If you think about it, please pray for our little girl! Pray for her health and her care while she's entrusted to someone else. And please pray for her heart - that she will know her heavenly Father and learn to walk with Him at an early age. And of course, pray for us! So much of this is uncharted territory - adoption and just parenthood in general. Bring it on!
