For all of you wondering "when" we are going to the Nest.... 5 WEEKS from TODAY! Every time I look at this sweet face I nearly burst with excitement!! There is a sense of freedom I'm feeling with this upcoming visit. In adoption, guarding your heart from the hurt of waiting sometimes overshadows the joy of the journey. But all my shields and guards are down now.... because my daughter will no longer be a picture that shows up on my computer screen or a health report telling me how much she smiles. In just 35 days, I'll be holding her soft warm chubby little person and be able to run my hands through that CRAZY hair of hers!! I can't stop praising the Lord for this gift!
