OVER THE MOON!!!!!!!!!!

We surprisingly already received information about our daughter from the sweet woman who took her care package to her and who acted as a stork bringing her from the orphanage to her new home, the transition home!!! This morning I checked my email and was SHOCKED to see Lisa's name and to see the sweet words and PICTURES of Lola Joy. Here's what Lisa had to say about her;
"Hi your baby is beautiful!! I am going to try to attach a picture!!! She's a good baby we have enjoyed being the delivery stork!! We will send more pictures later. She loves her pacifier that you sent her. We took a picture of her in two of her outfits. I will mail you the shirt she was wearing when we picked her up from W."

As I read this my heart was so full of JOY!!! I was shaking and so excited to open the pics to see how much our daughter had grown and changed. I was completely AMAZED at her beauty. I sense that she has a sweet, quiet spirit about her, (but only time will tell if I am right or not). I just stared at her in awe. She is a DOLL!!! Her eyebrows, her eye lashes, her lips, her hair, I cannot tell you with words from my lips that does her justice. My heart aches so much to go and whisk her home! To hold her tiny body up against my chest. To kiss her little feet. To smell her from head to toe. To wipe away her every tear. To pray away her every fear. Everything that this little one deserves.

Join us in prayer for the following things;

1) Pray that Lola gets the love and nourishment she needs, desires, and deserves
2.) Pray that she is taken to the Dr. to get her blood work and it's all normal
3) Pray for our court date May 22nd. That we pass on the first time with no flaws with the paperwork or anything else. That we can find favor with the judge and he/she will have mercy on our case.
4.) Pray that once we pass court that we get a QUICK embassy appointment.

Pray for Lola as she has transitioned into ANOTHER new environment. One that is unfamiliar to her. I cannot imagine how she is feeling once again. Pray that God heals her heart. That he comforts her during this time. That she knows that we are her Mommy and Daddy the moment we are united.

Doug and I are so thankful for thesupport and love we've been shown. Lola will be so blessed to meet you and to be raised in such a loving family. One that knows no color, no race, but simply LOVES, because that's what we're called to do! He created us ALL!!
