An ornament just for you...

To our sweet little girl:

It just doesn't even feel right that you're not home with us for Christmas. Oh, how we want you home with your family! Even though you're half a world away, you are not forgotten.  Daddy and I think about you all the time, and we pray for you daily. We can't wait until we see your precious face! We had hoped that the song, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" would be our special song this year...but next year, next year it will be!

It's a tradition in our home to buy a Christmas ornament for each family member every year to represent their year. We wanted so badly to have a Christmas ornament with your picture this year, but it's not the Lord's timing yet. But soon...very soon we pray! So instead, we found a very special ornament to hang on our tree in honor of you. Even though you're not home with us physically, we're celebrating Christmas with you in our hearts. 

We love you already and can't wait to bring you home to us!

  1. Just wanted to let you know we're still praying for you guys - and we completely understand. We were in the Eimers' adoption class with you a few months ago. We're still waiting on our travel dates to Taiwan. We had really hoped to travel in Dec. but it didn't happen. Is your email posted on your blog? I'd love to email with you. BTW, great job on your adoption savings! Isn't it amazing how God provides!

  2. I loved that song! I've never heard it! I feel so bad for you! I think you're in the same place that we will be this Christmas... I hope the referal comes quickly for you!

  3. Hi! I have been following your blog since we decided to adopt from Moldova as well. We are not as far along in the process as you yet, so I am always looking for an update with your adoption. I pray that you get your referral soon! Check out our blog @ nicholsblogspot.wordpress.com
    God bless!
