Today we got our PA from China. This means that the CCCWA received our LOI (Letter of Intent) and granted us favorable decision. Which basically means China says SHE IS OURS! And we can now share her with the world!
I went to her file to save her pictures to share them on this post. As I right clicked on each image, I noticed that it said “unnamed” in the title bar inside the window pop-up to save it. I’ve never noticed this until tonight. How appropriate that I get to delete, delete, backspace, delete, backspace, backspace, DELETE those letters and type in F A R R A H. This is the perfect picture of adoption. The world says unwanted.God says – I want all of you. The world says unnamed. God says – I have written your name in the book of life and hold you in the palm of My hands. The world gave her a number to wear on a sticker on her chest – one XXX of 147 million orphans. God says – A Father to the fatherless, is God in His holy dwelling.
A little about today because I want to document….
I was at a friends and missed the call. I got a call from John Taylor and he had gotten the call too! It’s sort of great that I got to hear he news from him instead of our social worker. Made it even sweeter.
We are beyond excited to introduce you to Farrah Ree. We are honored to be Farrah’s forever family.
The first picture we ever saw of her:
Some new pictures that were taken in June! These are our faves!
Thanks for all the prayers and for celebrating with us! We love y’all!
