I'm not going to lie, these pictures are very hard for me. The walls are full of mold and I'm sure lead paint. Her bed has some kind of stains on it and she has no smile. I opened my email this morning and my heart skipped a beat when I saw I had new pictures. My heart sank when I looked at them. In all of this, I see on her bed the little panda bear we sent her a few months back and my sweet little gracie covered her baby with a blanket. I see a little girl that loves her panda. I see in her eyes fear and sadness. But I also see that panda must give her joy and I'll hold that in my heart.
Today is day 39 of waiting for our LOA (China has up to 100+ days to issue our approval), We have never waited more than 54 days but that means nothing. It's up to Jesus.
My heart is heavy, I want my baby home. She needs her mama and daddy.
Please pray for her. Please pray her heart and lungs are not damaged due to the mold and poor quality of air she's breathing.
I know her Abba Father is with her, I feel it deep in my soul.
Praise be to God!
