Already Spoiled

Dear Kole,
Let me just say, you are going to be one spoiled boy! Almost every time we go to SOME store that contains clothing, mom or I always look for stuff for you. We just naturally start shopping for you ;) And if it's like this already, can you imagine what it will be like when you are actually HERE?! And now that our paperwork was delayed, mom and dad probably won't be traveling to get you till September :( But at least it will be cooler out! So now we have to pack you warm clothes and footies! I can only imagine how adorable you will look in footie pajamas! So far, I think you have 3 sets of PJ's and like 5 outfits. Including a pair of skinny jeans! You're already one stylish little man<3

Love you pal!

While I'm Waiting.......

Dear Kole,
First off, I'm sorry. I am so sorry. We are trying our VERY best to get you home as soon as possible, it's just not going as smoothly as it should be. I miss you sooooooo much, buddy! We really thought we'd be on an airplane by now.

This is one of those times where I have to remind myself, it's all in God's timing. I know He must have a bigger and better plan then we do, and He WILL provide and go before us. I know something good will come out of this, we just have to wait and see.....wait. I despise that word. I don't like waiting in line for anything (I don't think anyone does), I don't like sitting and waiting, waiting on someone, etc. I am a very impatient person but I have God to wait with me. That's another thing- we're not in this alone. As you go through a typical orphanage day, Kole, God is with you. As we work to get all these funds and paperwork together, God's with us. He says He will never leave or abandon us. NEVER. 

So, while I'm waiting, I will continue to count on the Lord and trust in Him and His timing. You probably don't know anything about Jesus, and are too young to understand it, so I pray for you day and night. And I won't stop until you get HOME.

I love you to the moon and back!
your inpatient sister
