Cherished, adored, forever ours.

"Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you."
Isaiah 46:4

Rejoicing in the faithfulness of the Lord, because tonight, there is one less orphan in the world. She is a beloved child, a daughter of the King, my precious sister. Fearfully and wonderfully formed in the womb of one mother and the heart of another. And now she is ours. Forever, for always, no matter what.

I was able to meet my sweet sister on skype and I am utterly and completely in love with her. Wishing more than anything that I was right there with her, but counting down the days until I'm holding her in my own arms.

Going to sleep tonight with a humble and thankful heart. He is so very faithful.

"What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do."
Isaiah 46:11

Emily - we are beyond joyful for you and your family over the addition of your precious new little sister half way around the world. I have been following your mom's blog but thought I would hop on over to yours, and I am so glad I did!

Sorry this is after the fact but we have followed Emily's blog since we brought our last child home in October of 08. My oldest daughter(11) has been faithful to check in and let me know when there was a new post. I haven't been faithful to post often but wanted to Congratulate you all on finally bringing Miss Ellie home. I followed the journey and prayed many times throughout the process for you all.

Your family is a wonderful testimony and I pray you are blessed abundantly for your obedience to him. Your family is absolutely beautiful!!!!
