My Little Fashion Disaster
We got a few new pictures of Abby yesterday,which is always so emotional. I am so thankful to get another glimpse of her but I cry because she is so big and it just reminds me of how she is growing up over there and we are waiting over here. I feel desperate to go get her. The first picture is my favorite picture ever because she looks like a little girl who might be having a little fun. It is not posed and she is away from the orphanage. I look at that picture and my heart bursts with love!I want to go blow bubbles with her. The second photo,I laughed out loud.Who dressed this child?? OH MY -SOMEONE CALL THE FASHION POLICE. She looks so big in this picture and she has grown quite a bit,her new measurements are height 3ft7in and weight 41lbs. I had bought some size 5 clothes for her but I think I am going to bring them back and get a 6.
We have been logged in for over 30 days. Hopefully approval will come quicker than the usual 90 days,like it did for the last family and we can go get her in May. You'd think after all this time and being this close, I would have learned patience..not so much. One thing I have learned is to trust God and his plan for your life and so I will wait for his perfect timing to finally hold my daughter.
