A Bit of an Anniversary

I realized that this time last year I was in the midst of considering the referral of my sweet little Moonbeam. I received her picture and information for the first time on June 11, 2008! I remember staring at the picture, wondering are you my daughter? Oh, how I wish I could post that sweet little picture here, but not until you are home forever! I went back and looked at my journal from those days and it was so fun to remember the things that God did to confirm in my heart that yes indeed you were/are my sweet little Hannah!

I looked at the notes I took from my conversation with Dr. Ochs - a Pediatrician who is also an adoption specialist. I emailed him Moonbeam's medical information and her picture. The first thing he said to me on the phone was, "the picture says it all, I think you have to go and pick her up". He told me that "you just can't fake a smile like that, she must be being well cared for".

It's hard to believe that an entire year has passed and she is still living in an orphanage. I don't understand this at all, but I will wait. And perhaps the three Kyrgyz women who have begun to champion our cause will have great success in their upcoming meetings with parliament! I know they have many people praying for this to be true!

I am praying for your daughter to be home with her mommy soon!
I am sorry you have to be going through this.
