Today our little girl celebrated her birthday. We did not decorate the house, or make a cake. There were no gifts. We did however, think of her and pray for her, and wish she was here. She won't know this however, for many months to come. She still waits for us in China. She turned 12 today, and celebrated her last birthday without a family name. Next year she will be surrounded by brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephew, and grandparents. She will have a baba and mama who thank God for her life, her precious life, and rejoice in the fact she is our daughter.
We know she is well cared for, and have no doubt that special people recognized her birthday . For that we are so grateful. We will never be able to thank them enough for the love they have shown her.
We know God's timing is perfect, but it is so hard to wait. How we'd love to have both our daughters home. Thankfully, before another birthday has come and gone for either of them, they should be in our arms. Already they are in our hearts.
Happy birthday sweetheart!! You are loved!!!!
