India here we come!!!!! November 10, 2009

God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.”-
Job 37:5-6

Two years ago today I took a journey to meet a little girl around the world. I can't explain how God has changed my heart in those two years. I needed to learn trust and patience like I have never experienced before in my life time. Love is a true journey and not just a feeling! My feelings of anger over how badly she needed a family and love and why did she have to wait sooooo long? The piece that I never could quite get was that I needed to grow in order to receive my gift from God our Sneha. I wasn't ready for his gift and it took me two years to learn. I wish I could have learned God's lessons sooner so you could have been placed with us sooner.
We leave for India on Friday so please pray for safety and understanding! God sets the lonely in families. Our trip will be very long, a long time in another country, a long time away from our children, and I must admit a long time away from my dogs! We are ready to bring our Grace Sneha home!!!!Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

John 14:18I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

November 02, 2009 Still waiting......................

Sneha's case was approved by NBC on October 28, 2009. The following day they were to scan and send the official approval to the embassy. As of today Nov 2, 2009 we are still waiting for the article 5 letter email and our embassy visa appointment:( Days become weeks, and frankly it drives me crazy. Last year on halloween I thought our Sneha would be going door to door for candy this year. She absolutely loves candy. I need patience to wait for our Grace Sneha to come home. (2 years, 2 weeks, and 4 days waiting for our daughter)

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)
