and His timing is wonderful (even when I don't realize it). He works out the big things and cares about the little things too! His ways truly are higher and so far ahead of my short seeing and small minded human self that I am only beginning to figure it out! We received news that our Dossier made it across the world safely to China on 12/26 after being sent from our adoption agency on the 22th. . . Praise God! That started the wait for our LID (Log In Date to the CCCWA. . . China's adoption/welfare system).
So pause and let's talk about the fact that MY SISTER HAD A BABY TODAY!!!! I have a new niece!!! Yippeee!! I can't wait to meet her in a few days! Poor Ty (my nephew) is seriously out numbered on our side of the family with 4 girls currently and him being the only boy! Little Andi Lee arrived this afternoon and is cute as can be! She is named after both of my grandmothers and I know they would love her so much!

So now we wait for a call. We don't know how long it will be. Days, weeks, months, who knows. God's timing is perfect and His timing is where I want to be. . . And try not to worry (not completely there yet). I read a quote by Ann Voskamp in The Greatest Gift (which is the Advent book that I am currently on December 10th in. . . oops!) that says "Worry is belief gone wrong. Because you don't believe that God will get it right." Wow, that it powerful and convicting for me.
We look forward to what 2017 has in store for our little family. New adventures for sure. We hope to share God's love and grace with those we meet and share life with. We hope to be blessings to you just as so many of you have been to us! Happy (almost) new year friends!
