Today as I was getting the paperwork together for our next step I had a thought....
we are going to China.
My name is Sonia.
Nice to meet you.
For so long this process has been about.....well, about the process.
Trying to wrap my rookie adoption brain around what we needed to do, who we needed to meet with, what form needed to go where, what we needed to do next.....
And now that that is all starting to settle down.....it has hit me.
We are going to China.
These two little boys will soon be so much more than a picture.
They will be real
in the flesh gorgeous little faces that I get to look at and love on
Be-still my heart.
I cannot wait to see them, to watch them chatter away with one another in Mandarin, to watch their relationship with their brothers develop, to love them, to feed them, to let them pick out a bicycle for the first time in their life, to teach them about the love of a Savior!...all of that amongst 1 million other things that bring me to my knees with thankfulness, anticipation and hope!
And though I don't expect it to be a fairytale.
What I do know is that we are smack dab in the center of HIS will.
Just where I wanna be.
I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you. John 14:18
