My heart Pours out....

Tonight we had an amazing care group night ..this is our bible study group. What an amazing night and powerful prayers. Im so grateful for these special friends that we have grown so close to. When we got home tonight there was an email with amazing information about our Grace Gyeonge-eun. How very special to get this information about her. Things like..."she has a huge smile when the foster family kisses her on the cheek", "Cute little girl with shining eyes", "Easy going baby", "babbles alot", "Enjoys bath time and splashin in the water", "Foster family takes care of her with their whole heart", "Likes it very much when she is held", "Falls asleep at night with a lullaby". There was so much more in the email about her, I won't go into it all, but this really meant alot to me to see. I feel that I know her much more now. I know what she likes, and her sleeping patterns, some of what she likes and does not like...most of all I know that she is being so loved with her foster family and that they are bonded with her as much as she is bonded with them. AFter all this is the only family she has ever known since she was one day old. I am FOREVER grateful to this family that God placed in her life. For Grace this family is just for a season, and soon she will be joining her FOREVER family with us. We are all so excited to have her home with us...the wait has been so hard...and at the same time I grieve for what I can only imagine she will feel and the foster family will feel as they soon say goodbye to her. This transistion brings joy for our family, but also breaks my heart for the ones who have to say goodbye to her! My prayer is for the foster family and that God will bless them for this special gift they have given to our daughter, for taking her in and loving her completly as their own. That He will comfort them as they say goodbye to her very soon. I think fostering is a special calling in life. And the familys that do it are amazing and strong people, because they know it is only for a time! My prayer for our little Gracie is that the moment she is in our arms that she will be able to feel our LOVE that we have for her! That she will bond quickly with us. I pray The Lord will give her visions of us and dreams about us to prepare her heart for her forever family that is so anxiously awaiting her arrival. We have so much love to give to her!

Hi! It's so amazing to hear things about Grace's personality. It makes her seem so much more real! I also have to say, it touched my heart so much to hear my senior solo song on the blog page! It lets me know that God is always there, connecting us in some way. I love you all very much and keep you in my prayers every day!

Hi Tina! Thank you for stopping by my blog! Your little Grace is just beautiful! I know you are counting down the days until you can hold her in your arms. Oh, I 've have been there! My boys were just as anxious as we were! Adoption is just so amazing!!!

My camera, I use a Nikon D60. Love it!! love it!!! Very affordable and takes great photos. I don't know if you have Costco were you are at but they have a great deal on a bundle pack that comes with camera and 2 lenses. I however, just bought the camera which came with the standard lens and I have added to it since. Hope you find one you like! If you have anymore question feel free to contact me via email! acausey2@msn.com

I look forward to following your journey to bring that little princess home.
