Life Changing

Seeing the expression on his face when he realizes why you are here. 

Watching him fight the tears and feelings of disbelief as he looks at pictures of your family and his new reality refreshes its impression on his young mind. 

Seeing the tremor of excitement shake his body when each beloved caregiver passes by with a joyful smile and stops for a consensual hug.

The stunned look of, "Is this really real?" intertwined with pure happiness.

All the uncertainty of the past year falls away as a young boy is given hope and the love that he deserves.

Next Up!!!

I have never been so excited to see a doll!!! Silliness? Maybe, but it's one of those little things that make families happy when they are in country. 

We have met Sutter and Monday morning we have our DAP appointment for our second referral of Ariel!

Yes, God has provided the way for us to move forward, for a little girl that is indeed a princess of The One True King!

We leave tomorrow for our children's country and our first appointment is on Wednesday.
We will meet #1 on Friday and #2 the next week.

We are still short on funds, but have enough for the first trip.
I am thinking about bringing home some chocolate to use as a fundraiser.

Anyone interested?
