Out of the Wood Works


People who know OUR baby, OUR baby whom WE have not yet met, are coming out of the wood works to tell us all about Amelia. How amazing is that!? Of course, they don’t know her by “Amelia.” They know her by her name at the orphanage, which we will also keep as a part of her name.

I have heard from a good handful of sweet short-term missionaries and volunteers who have spent days with our sweet girl. They have sent me pictures and emailed me about her personality and history. I even spoke for an hour on the phone to a girl who particularly loved Amelia. It was a miracle! Another new friend is trying to contact a photographer who apparently did a photo shoot with our daughter. Won’t it be amazing if we get to have copies of those pictures!?

God’s mercy’s are never ending. I never imagined I could have so many pictures or know so much about Amelia BEFORE meeting her. God promised to never give us more than we could bear, and for now, these sweet new friends are making the wait a little more bearable!

Ok, speaking of pictures.... I'm dying to see sweet Amelia! Are you allowed to email pics or am I going to have to come to church at SJ to "meet" her! ?
Heard she's beautiful!
