No, we didn't get a new hat....we received our Log-in-Date with the China Center of Adoption Affairs (CCAA)! In all His infinite wisdom, God decided our annual two weeks of celebration between two most special occasions - Brandon's birthday and Trevor's birthday (with a couple of very special dates in between) - needed to be extended. So now, every year until we are united with our daughter, we will celebrate March 20, 2009 as our place in line for that most special occasion. What a week! It started Sunday, which was appropriately titled "Adoption Sunday" at FBC Paducah, with a kick-off event to empower our congregation's heart for adoption. Amazing message of the Gospel and Adoption that morning...and a chance to have lunch with the guest speaker/pastor and our own pastoral staff that afternoon. Had a chance to see Lucy, the executive director of our adoption agency at the church luncheon, as well as meet Emily face-to-face for the first time (she is the agency's China coordinator). Hugs and smiles all around! And now a LID...wow! God is so good and He is in control! Thank you for your prayers.
