The Countdown Begins

.....9 DAYS and we will be leaving to meet our son! I can't even believe it actually. It seems like this process has taken forever, but then other times it seems like just yesterday we committed to adopting him. What a roller coaster of emotions it has been. I am posting something written by my friends Chris and Mary Malone before they went to meet their boys and it touched me so much that I wanted to post it here before our trip!!!


10 Days Away...and I'm wondering...
I wonder...when it was 10 days before I met God and He adopted me, was HE this excited?

I wonder if His stomach did flips and He got tears in His eyes when He thought about holding me for the first time.

I wonder if His heart ached when He thought about my life without Him as my Daddy.

I wonder if it grieved Him to know that I was living as an orphan and had no hope of a future without Him.

I wonder if He was as okay with paying my ransom as I am with paying our boys'.

I wonder if, for Him, there was no cost too high, no sacrifice too great.I wonder...
