First, a big thank you for your thoughtful emails and phone calls. Your words of encouragement mean so much to me and each one lifted my spirits a little higher. Yesterday was just a down day and I'm not really sure why. But by the evening, I was at peace with this process again. I have no control over what will happen or when and there's no point in making myself miserable over it. I trust that everything will all work out - some how, some way!
Here are the things I know:
~ Our little girl is in a good baby home and she is being well taken care of.
~ She has no idea what is going on and is not missing us like we are missing her. (That's a good thing.)
~ If there is any way humanly possible to take our boys to Russia with us, we will.
~ If we have to miss Christmas programs, the show will go on.
~ There is still plenty of time to get her home before Christmas. That call could come any day now.
~ If not, we'll still have wonderful Christmas! Because Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
