"Hi, Mommy!"

This evening we got to see videos of Candace Selam and Sarah Fikir. They look shy, but so sweet. They say their names, then they wave at the camera and say "Hi, Mommy!"

Wow. Tears!

Thanks again, Celeste. :)

Oh Paula... that has to help make some of those fears melt away. "Hi Mommy" oh what sweet, sweet words to your ears!

I prayed for you this morning... prayed for the girls for health and happiness... and for a successful court date! It will be here before you know it. I am sure this is like waiting for Christmas to come when we were kids!
Love you!

Thanks Kristen! Your prayers are priceless to me... can't wait to bring the whole family to Indiana this summer when you can meet the twins.

Oh, that is so precious! What a treasure!

I am right there with you on the agony of waiting (at least I have been!) It is and indescribable feeling to have those little ones placed in your arms and to know they are yours forever!

It makes me think, too, of how God adopts us, and how it's a forever thing :-) I John 3:1, Gal 4:4-7
