We leave in 10 days.
And I am completely and totally losing my mind with excitement. My tummy does flip flops when I think about how close we are to bringing Vivi home.
I was in China with my sister this time last year. And had no idea Vivienne even existed.
Interestingly, the shared list that included her sweet name was released when we were in China. My sister’s in-China rep even mentioned the ‘list’ and the fact that she’d been up late the night before locking in files for families.
At the time, I hadn’t the tiniest inkling that our girl was on that list. Or that her file would locked and unlocked many times by potential families before we finally saw her sweet face on January 31st.
“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is Yours, O LORD, and this is Your kingdom. We adore You as the One who is over all things. Riches and honor come from You alone, for You rule over everything. Power and might are in Your hand, and it is at Your discretion that people are made great and given strength.” ~ 1 Chronicles 29:11-12
