30 months ago today was 2/6/2006. I can't believe that it has been 30 months since we have been logged into the CCAA (China Center for Adoption Affairs--in Beijing). Time has, in one way gone so fast, then in others.....so s-l-o-w.
Tonight we honor our daughter Lydia. We do every 6th day of the month. Typically, I will cook a special meal or we will watch a documentary on Chinese adoption. We love to watch China's Lost Girls. It is a great documentary about adoption through China. I highly recommend it. It is very informative. It gives us a very small taste of what it will be like when we go over there.
Over there....our daughter is across the world....wow! It reminds me of a precious passage from Isaiah 43: 6-7, "bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth, everyone who is called by my Name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made."
Gives me chills just reading it. Isaiah 43 is one of my favorite chapters from the Word of God.
Read it, it is totally worth it.
So, tonight, John and I toast to our daughter and give thanks to our Father who has taken care of her......somewhere in China.
We love you Lydia....we are on our way!
