Fingerprint appointment

We finally received our fingerprint appointment Saturday for November 30. It seems like still so far away. I am trusting God will have everything worked out so we will receive our FDL letter when we need it.
It seems so odd that everything takes so long. I understand the waiting time for a referral-there are families ahead of you. But once you accept a referral.......come on!! I know our agency does all they can do and it's just the way it works. But it's been a month since we accepted her referral and she is still sitting there with no family to love her. HH does a wonderful job but it's not the same as a family.
I want to hold her and sing to her, tell her we love her and her heavenly father loves her. I want to see her play with her brothers and watch them protect her. I can't wait to see her grow and to see her personality. Will she be a tomboy with all these brothers? Or will she be a princess? I can't wait to feel that first hug and hear that first "I love you". I can't wait to be the one who wipes her tears as she cries...for her
Even if things are not the way we imagine they will be when we bring her home, she will be HOME, with her family. God will work everything else out.


  1. This is so sweet. I know exactly what you mean.

  2. Ashlie,
    I love reading your posts. You leave me feeling hopeful and excited. I will be praying for you that everything goes quickly and correctly so that you may bring your daughter home.

  3. The wait is so hard but it will be so worth it at the end. You will have years and years to love her. I know as I have been there. Just take one day at a time.

  4. Yep, patience is not my gift either....and I am just praying the days away until we both get to go see our sweet hearts!!! :)
