We have been HOME together now for 7 and 1/2 months, the same amount of time we were stuck in the Congo. Fifteen months ago today we flung open the screen door to our hotel room and welcomed our precious little girl into our arms forever. She was worth several long years of what seemed to be an endless winter season in our lives, snowed in with the uncertainty and despair that international adoptions hold. But we always held on to HOPE and tried to trust God’s timing. We knew all along that she must be something pretty special for us to have to go through everything we went through. And now, finally, she is ours and we are completely enamoured and ensconced in just being together!
