This post is going to be very short and sweet with a promise to give more details in tomorrow's post. The adoptions of all three of our children are finalized and we are just waiting for their passports to come in. With God's grace, they will be in no later than Monday. Since we have to wait until then to travel to Kiev for the last leg of our trip, we could not wait for our precious daughter's childhood to begin.
|Her childhood began at this moment|
At 4 pm local time, the emotional journey we have been on for 11 months partially came to the end as a new one started. The day we and countless others have been praying for was beautifully answered by God as we walked our precious daughter through the gates of her orphanage never to return.
At 4 pm local time, our Maclayne Faith was carried into her childhood by her mama and daddy. Tonight she will, for the first time, sleep securely and peacefully encircled in our love. David and I will sleep securely and peacefully knowing that our daughter will awaken to the love that she has waited three years for.
|Our precious gift from God|
[As soon as the children's passports come in, we will have Teague's and Trenton's Gotcha Day. The apartment we are staying in is too small for two rambunctious boys and we do not know how many more days we will be in this region. We will continue to visit them and pray that the passports come in sooner than expected.]
