It’s Christmas Eve, and here in Missouri we are facing a possible ice storm. Somewhere here in the U.S. tonight, my dear friends Pat and Kim are either flying to Florida, or are in an airport somewhere, waiting to finally go home after their long journey to China to get their adopted baby, Hadassah. I am eagerly waiting to hear from them, praying for their safety and for their strength for the remainder of the journey.
Their flight is supposed to get in to Florida at 11:00 pm. tonight. Grandma and the kids are probably staying up late tonight to welcome them home and to finally see “Sissy” in person (Hadassah). They’ve been watching her on the web cam each morning and night. The kids are SO excited about seeing their parents and their new sister. It is always so hard to wait! (Our daughter Leah got to open one present tonight for Christmas; tomorrow on Christmas Day she will open the rest!)
Above is a picture of Pat, Kim, and Hadassah at one of their hotels in China. Kim knew I would love the waterfall. 🙂 Here is a picture of them when they took Hadassah to see the big pandas at Panda World in China.
Thank you all so much for praying for my friends, and please keep them in your prayers. I will keep you posted as soon as I hear news of their arrival. This precious, beautiful little girl is almost home!
Have a WONDERFUL day tomorrow with family and friends. Merry Christmas!
