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.

DELIGHTFUL PICTURES!!! Yes, even the 2nd one! All you have to do is go to your mom's and look through photos of when you were 5 years old, and I am sure you will find PLENTY in which you are dressed in some horrid outfit, the likes of which you cannot believe anyone would have worn, let alone stand and pose for a picture in!!!! I know there are pics of me like that. [And we had loving mothers who dressed us!] And how many times did you get dressed in some scathingly hideous outfit ... AND YOUR SISTER HAD A MATCHING ONE?????

A word about daughters: your taste in clothing and their taste in clothing are going to be World's Apart. What you think is adorable, they will want to give to dad - to clean up the oil spills on the garage floor! What they think is awesome [and want to wear to school, church, etc.] you will cringe at, and figure out some way to "accidentally" pour bleach on and render it "trash." But, alas, now it is "tie-dyed" and they find it even MORE appealing! Get ready... girls are just grown women - in tiny bodies!

I'm so glad I just happened to find your blog, I hope you don't mind if I follow along on your journey! I will pray for you, and that God will prepare your daughter's heart to see her family's faces.
