In 7 Days

In 7 days we will be on a plane and beginning our journey to our daughter.  The days are flying and at the same time Tuesday, October 30 can not get here fast enough!

On Friday at 12:08 I got an email from our agency that was titled "photos." My heart skipped a beat as I knew it was new picture of our little Ellie.  I couldn't get the photos to come up on my phone so getting home to my computer couldn't happen fast enough.  When I opened the email this is the first picture I saw of our sweet girl.  I of course got teary as I studied every ounce of the picture.  My heart breaks for how sad she has looked in every picture we have gotten of her.  Oh my to see those little cheeks rise and a smile on those lips is going to be priceless.

The next picture put me into the mode of "get me on a plane right now".  To see her once again in the sterile environment of an orphanage and those metal bars she sleeps in every night puts the reality of where our little girl calls home right in front of you.

We are praying she is being loved and her needs are being met.  We are trusting that God is holding our little girl tightly until she is in our arms. Those little cheeks are a blessing, she looks healthy.

We can't wait to look deep into those big brown eyes and hold her in our arms.  You have to love the Chinese split pants!

Julie, she is just beautiful! I too cannot wait to see a smile on her face. I look at those pictures and think she has no idea how completely her life is about to change!! She is such a lucky little girl! And I'm sure it will be very soon that you'll see how lucky you all are to have her and learn why God picked her specifically for your family. I can't wait to see her in your arms, my friend.
