Yes, she knows!









We sent Grace a Chinese New Year package through Ann of Red Threads about 2 weeks ago. We were thinking we weren't going to get any pictures back, but today, Ann emailed us ELEVEN (although some are cropped versions) new pictures of our girl!!!!!!!! And a short email that not only said that she is a happy girl, but also said SHE IS BEING PREPARED FOR HER ADOPTION!!! It's so amazing to have pictures of her reading our letter and looking at pictures of HER family! Oh and to top it all off... we also got 2 pictures of her with her foster mother!!!!!!!! So amazing to have.

We are excited, to say the least :)

Mom emailed the pictures to our *wonderful* agency, and they were so excited to see her, too. Sara replied, "We will get you there as FAST as we can!" Sounds good to me! :)

Thank you, LORD!!!

WOW!!!! I have chills! I have another blog pulled up and the song playing on their blog is "I saw God today" (by George Straight) and I have to tell you - it fits!!!! That's how I feel by seeing these pictures of Grace today!!!!

He is so good.

Grace is beautiful.

Praying for her foster family today as well. They are counting down the days too, in a very different way.
