Bringing Zahra Home Update ~ Thank you!

WOW! We are completely blown away by the outpouring of support! To God be the glory! He is faithful! Being in this final phase of the adoption is both invigorating and tiring. We have come so far, God has provided SO much yet there is still so much to be done.

To say we are excited would be an understatement. Getting new pictures of our girl is both absolutely amazing and completely gut wrenching. All we want to do is hold her and tell her she will be in our family forever. Yet I know God is working in our hearts to prepare us for the pain and grief little Zahra will experience and has already experienced. With our joy comes a total and complete loss for her. We must be ready for that. We must prepare for that. This waiting and pain is part of that process. To prepare us for her and to knit our hearts even this many miles away. Yearning for her is similar, yet no where near the depth of the pain she feels yearning for her birth family, her pain is even deeper. I'm thankful for this pain even though it hurts so bad. I'm praying for my little girls heart, praying for her birth family, and above all trusting in Gods perfect timing to bring her home.

Here's a sneak peak of our precious girl holding some of the things we sent her....
and her precious little dimple....

Baby girl we are coming for you!!

My family is your modeling crew...we love our shirts, love the messages, love that we get to help you bring Zahra home by buying them. If you're a friend of Erica's and on the edge, let me topple you over to the buy em now side: they are super soft and cozy and wonderful. You get to show love to a friend, and you get to help a little one into a family who will share the love of Jesus daily with her. To quote Nike: Just Do it ;-)
