I have no idea how much you know right now. Do you know you have a mom and dad in America who can not wait to come to Africa? Do you know you have three brothers who are dying to wrap their arms around you? You can not possibly know how much you are loved right now in this one moment. You are in Africa and we are here in America and yet, those THOUSANDS of miles can not separate you from our love. I mean, we are SO IN LOVE with you. Your beautiful smile, your beautiful eyes and your sweet face. Last month you met a new friend of mine, Heidi, and she took some video of you - we finally got to see a little of your sweet personality. You are going to love our family - with your energy you will fit right in.
I want you to know - you are OURS! And FOREVER we will be YOURS! I know we haven't met yet, but, sweet girl, you have a forever family. I know your life is hard right now, and it probably will be for the next couple months or years as you adjust to your new mom and dad, but, I promise you, you were loved before we ever laid eyes on you. You are in our hearts and we are aching to be with you! It is my hope and my fervent prayer, that 1 month from today, your dad and I will be on a plane to Africa to welcome you to our family. 1 month! 30 days. A very short time from now. Many people have contributed to our journey to bring you home and I can not wait for you to meet them.
Your dad is painting you a beautiful room. Your nanny is going to teach me how to sew curtains. Your brothers are already fighting about where you will sit at the dinner table. Your brother Benjamin keeps trying to get me to buy you a purse - he said you need one. Dillan, your oldest brother, wants me to get on a plane right now to bring you home. I think you and he will have a special bond. He has already told me that any boy who breaks your heart will have to answer to him! James, your second oldest brother, wants to show you how to play football and all of his cool TV shows.
We will be there soon. I know it. Just a couple more steps....
