What in the world do the letters "LID" have to do with adoption? In two short words...A TON!!!
Today was another HUGE puzzle piece in our adoption journey. I received an e-mail from our wonderful adoption agency that we are LID, which means "Log In Date," which means we are officially approved by The Chinese Center for Children's Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) to adopt a little girl from their country. In other words, we got the "stamp of approval" from China today and my heart couldn't be happier!
This past week has been tough emotionally, as I have been missing my mom A LOT! And the waiting involved with adoption--waiting for things that are virtually out of my control--also weighs heavily on my heart. Yet the Lord has been SO VERY GRACIOUS in providing amazing people to love me through this journey of missing my mom AND as we anticipate welcoming Jenna into our home from China.
So as I look at these three simple letters that now mean so very much to me, all I can say is THANK YOU LORD!
Jenna...we are getting closer to finally seeing your face, and wherever you are right now sound asleep (hopefully warm and cozy!), I just want you to know that I love you, I am praying for you, and I can't wait to have you in my arms!
