This year I signed up right away for Created for Care 2012. I couldn't wait to go again. Well, things changed and we thought we may be traveling to Ethiopia at the end of January, so I sold my ticket. Things changed again and I thought I may be able to go, but in the end it didn't work out. I was disappointed at first, but then I made plans to meet my friend Sarah for lunch on Saturday. We met in the middle of our two towns and had a mini created for care retreat.
Sarah and I have sent numerous e-mails, texts, and talked on the phone many times, but we had never met in person until last Saturday. Our daughter's have lived together for the last 2 years. They were in the same orphanage as babies and now they share a nursery at Hannah's Hope. Sarah was one of the first people I talked to when we found out about our daughter. She was praying for her before we even knew she was our daughter. We have a special connection because of our precious daughters and I am so thankful for her friendship.
We are both waiting on the embassy to clear our cases, so that we can bring our sweet girls home where they belong. This wait has been so hard, but I am thankful to have a friend who understands and doesn't mind when I cry to her on the phone or in the middle of the Children's Place.
I am looking forward to the days when we can meet up for play dates with Mia and Eve.
