In other news, I can tell Andy is getting more and more into this. He's always been 100% on board but I think it's becoming more real to him as time passes. We've enjoyed some great conversations about "her". Everything from names, to nicknames, to daddy-daughter dates. He even peaked in a few stores with me this weekend to look at girls' clothing :) He said he would give me 5 minutes..ha! I'll take it.
I can't help but feel the Lord may be calling us to more than we realize through this adoption. I'm not really sure what that means but He has definitely been pricking my heart lately for adoption in general.
Please pray for our second visit with our social worker this week. And please, please, please pray for our little girl - that her needs would be met (food, shelter, clothing) and that the Lord would be preparing her heart to accept Him as Savior one day. Lately, I've been praying that she has someone to make her laugh and smile. Someone to give her an extra dose of attention and physical touch so that it isn't a foreign thing to her. I also pray for her caretakers and her birth mother. All involved need Him!
Father to the fatherless, defender of widows — this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families.
