Day 13

A week ago today we stepped off of a train in Ellee and Johannah's region, knowing that in a few short hours we would be meeting our daughters for the first time. We had to make a few stops before we went to the orphanage, and then we were there. Couldn't believe that we were actually there. As we sat and listened to what the director was telling us about Ellee and Johannah, I couldn't help for my mind to wander knowing that we were minutes away from meeting our daughters for the first time. Then it was time, the director asked us if we were ready to meet our daughters. They went and got Ellee and Johannah and brought them into us, and oh my heart just melts thinking about those first few minutes. They went by so fast, but they will forever be in my heart. Now a week later, we are 2 days from going to court, and hearing the judge announce them our daughters. Oh I can't wait. The last week has been amazing! The girls have blossomed so much in the last week, they are so smart, so loving, and yes again I am in love! Hope you all have a great week, and thank you to everyone who has prayed for us, who has helped us financially, and who have been right along in the journey with us. We love you all!!!

Now what you all have been waiting for...

What precious gifts. That first picture reminds me so much of when our C was little.
