This little girl

I get to be a mama to this sweet child. My heart is overwhelmed with the intense love that God has for her. There is a different look in her eyes now that she knows she has a family. I cant really explain it, its just a small glimpse of hope. The kids at home ask us every single day if we are closer and when can we pick them up already. They have items they have saved for each child and are awaiting the day to see them. As a mom seeing my children at home understand compassion, and get the heart of Christ is beyond what anything is this life can teach them. They have had some sacrifices of favorite things, they are tired of beans or rice :), but they complain very little about it.
I day dream of all the things we will talk about (or not talk about for lack of language :). I wonder of the things that I already know with my kids. The dislikes the passions, the irritations, the interest of each child of mine. I know just a few things about this one. She is tender, she is sweet and she is confident. I already love her! Just look at her!

I agree, she looks different in this picture. Her eyes are shining. She is blossoming and looks beautiful! I can't wait to hear about when you get to meet her and her adorable brother. I am so excited for you all!

Hi my darling niece, you are RIGHT, there is a very beautiful shine in her eyes. Very different from the first fotos you shared with us. We love you and I am so excited for both Frank and Josiah. What a life experience they are about to embark.
