8327.12

the number of miles between Denver, Colorado and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This distance feels smaller and smaller with each step of the process. Like I said earlier, tomorrow is our final home study meeting. The house is as clean as it can be...fire extinguishers installed, outlets covered...I feel so ready for this meeting. I'm not nervous like the first meeting, just excited...just picturing one step closer to being able to hear our daughter's name, find out her story, see her picture, hold her in our arms, and bring her home. It is so strange to worry about someone you have never even met. I worry about her, about her safety. Is she hungry? Scared? I pray for her safety and ask that thousands of angels will be placed around her. God has planned this for our family, we have seen the confirmation of this time and time again. I know He is taking care of her. I think of Zephaniah 3:17 (with my additions):
The LORD your God is with her,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in her,
he will quiet her with his love,
he will rejoice over her with singing.

Amen.
