That's my daughter.

God is so good. 
That's really all I know to say. 
He has knit our family together so perfectly, and this girl is the icing on our cake. 
To sum up my time with her-- 
God used each and every minute to confirm over and over and over again that she was made for us. 
It's painstakingly obvious that she belongs with us. 
Every little detail-- they just fit. 

 Our bond was instant, as if it had always been there. 
I guess you could say that's because it has. 
God knew long before I did that she was ours. 
And I will never, ever stop thanking him for the gift that is our Emily. 

I am so in love with this little girl. 
And while my head is still spinning, jet lag is still kicking (hello, 4am wake-ups), and my heart is still racing, one thing is for certain: 
I CANNOT WAIT for her to come home. 

Every day I spend longing for her is one more day that she doesn't have a family. 
And even one more day with no family is too many. 

Will you please join me in praying that she comes home soon? 
Pray that God will move mountains and bring her home sooner rather than later. 

As of tomorrow, we officially began our adoption process twenty months ago. 
But my heart has been longing for her for so much longer than that. 


Cool people leave comments. Comments make me happy. You do the math.
