  1. i love the first blog --- especially what is accomplished in the waiting. oh, it didn't take me 4-6 weeks to say (outloud) "what have we done???" i said it at the end of the first 24 hours together while still in russia. the depth of love God grew in my heart for these amazing little girls is impossible to describe. i guess, it's just a smidgen of what He feels for us, His adopted and cherished and precious children. he.is.incredible.
