We are working on our paperwork for our dossier. We should have it all completed by Friday. Then, we'll continue to wait for our approval letter from USCIS (immigration). That should be here soon! After that, our dossier will go to our agency and then on to Ghana. We have faith that our little ones will come home in God's time, but we are prayerful that it will be SOON!

Something I would like to share with you. This is not to "brag" on our daughter, only to say I wish we could all have childlike faith. This is one of my prayers, that I will have that faith and act upon it without asking questions. Our oldest is 10 and she has such a heart for little kids, especially orphans. A few weeks ago we learned of a baby in Ghana who is sick. She is so sick that the last time we had news they weren't sure she would live. Since then, our daughter has prayed for her each night (and during the day, I'm sure). She has prayed for healing of this little girl and that we could adopt her. Every so often, she will break down. It's at these times that she's thinking of that baby. I know God is laying that sweet baby on her heart, but I do not know the plans for her. All I know is my daughter's heart is breaking for a baby she has never met or even seen a picture of. That is hard for me to imagine. I can feel that same love, but I'm 34. She is 10! Today she said, "Momma, I have seen the baby in my heart." And then started telling me what this baby looks like. I cannot imagine the pain my daughter will feel if this baby dies. I have tried to prepare her for the reality that her living with Jesus may be God's plan. One way or another, though, I know this baby girl in Ghana, Africa is changing my daughter's life. I know God will use my daughter's faith to change mine.

Praying for you all! See you in the morning, I hope. As usual, could use a Kristie hug!

Your daughter has the sweetest heart ... I loved reading this post. I will pray that the Lord continues to soften her heart toward the ones He loves oh so much. I know he has HUGE plans for your little girl. :0)
