An Unexpected Surprise!!!!
Today I checked my email on my lunch and found a wonderful surprise,new pictures of Lianqing(Abby)and measurements too.She is MUCH smaller than she appears.
She is 3ft 6inches tall and 35lbs.(Not the average size of a five year old) Obviously malnutrition is playing into this. As exciting as it was to get new photos,it also broke my heart at the same time. We don't even have our paper work over there and after it is, there may be a 5 month wait. She looks so sad to me and I don't know if you can tell but she has bug bites on her legs. I just want to GO GET HER and BRING HER HOME. Please say a prayer for her and that God will put his hand in this and move things along quickly and smoothly. Although,I know it is going to be an incrediably big adjustment when we are finally together,I just want her to know love and happiness. Prayers please :)
