Today was update day!
Update day is THE best day of the month! The beginning of each month we get a picture and a brief description of our little girl. I look forward to this day all month long. I read over and over the words, drawing a picture in my mind of what it will be like to have her home. How her unique personality will change our family dynamics.
I stare at the picture, smile and giggle at it. I have even been known to talk to her picture that is the backdrop on our computer. My husband thinks I'm crazy- he's probably right.
I am trying so hard not to wish the days away wanting to get her home so badly. I am trying to be in the present with my family, knowing that very soon everything will change. We will not be the same family. We will not be the same people. God is going to use this little girl to rock our world. I am confident of that!
When I opened her picture today I laughed out loud! This girl is a hoot!
Her hair is fluffed out as she was getting her hair braided by a care worker.
She is staring straight into the camera with these amazing brown eyes.
The look on her face is worth a thousand words. I can see her saying
"are you kidding me right now, you're really gonna take my picture now! Can't a girl finish her braids before you go snapping pictures."
I mean that's what it looks like she's saying in the picture. :)
Oh how I wish you all could see this picture!
The update said she is showing a quieter, cuddly side. And that she doesn't mind sitting still having her hair braided!
I say hallelujah to that!
