My precious child,

We are feeling like we are getting closer to meeting you and yet it still seems so far away.  Mommy and Daddy's paper work made it to your country last month.  This month, we received our place in line on the waiting list.  We are expected to get a referral with a picture of you in 12-15 months.  After that, it will be a few months before we will get to meet you for the first time.  We have been praying for you; that God is keeping you safe while we wait for you.  Your brother and sister are excited to meet you.  We have a container in our house where we collect change.  When the container is full, we roll the change and put the money in our bank account to use toward adoption costs.  Your brother cleaned out his piggy bank the other day and put his quarters into that container.  He was hoping that it would be enough money so that we could come and get you.  I wish that it was that easy.

I hope that you are safe.  I hope that you are warm.  I hope that your belly is full.  I hope that you are being shown love.  I hope you know that you are loved.

I love you,
