Tears of Joy

I am not a crying person. I'm just not. But I have to tell you I have been more emotional & cried more tears since we began this journey than I ever believed possible. Today was no exception. All it took was seeing these words on the Three Angels website, "Update: Anchise has a family!". Bawling like a baby over five little words. I tell ya...

Here are some pictures I was blessed with today. A huge thank you to everyone who sent photos!

I've been checking the site for some time waiting to see that!!! Something about it makes it so much more official, huh! Stephanie, I am thrilled for you guys. Can you believe how God has worked it all out? Truly, He is the One who has planned every detail of this adoption out before it Anchise was even a twinkle in your eye. So when things get rough, the wait gets long, and it seems like so many obstacles block the path, you can take heart and know that God is the One orchestrating this and He will work it all out for the good!

Praise God!

She's awesomely cute! TAs has such PRECIOUS children! There is nothing quite so sweet as getting photos of your baby, is there?

Oh, and you may as well just get used to the crying... You may not have been a crier most of your life, but adoption has a strange way of turning on the water works!

I can't wait for Anchise to get home I'm so looking forward to meaating her. It will be nice to have another girl around here. I love my brothers but sometimes they get on my nerves.
