I am so moved to think that when our daughter is ready for us to come get her, God will provide for our dossier to be at the top of the list. It is so beautiful and peaceful to know that His hand is in this "birth" every bit as much as it was with our Sydney. How amazing to be chosen by Him to experience this awe-inspiring journey to bring our second daughter into our family. I dream of her often and I only wish I could communicate the beauty and peace I experience in these dreams with you all. They are the closest thing to Heaven I have experienced next to the birth of Sydney.
Speaking of Sydney, she doesn't understand why her baby sister isn't here yet and she asks often why (as two year olds do) she's not here. We tell her that her baby sister just isn't ready yet. She has heard this answer so many times, she has started answering it for herself anytime she asks the question. It is so exciting being able to share this with her at this age and to see her understand it just a little. We have purchased a beautiful silk baby blanket for her sister and she asks to sleep with it every week. She will hold it up to me and ask, "Whose blanket is this?" And then she will answer her own question saying, "It's my baby sister's! I can sleep with it!" How amazing to share in her enthusiasm for her sister! Most moving of all, lately she has been including her baby sister in her prayers. She will say, "And thank You for my baby sister; she's not ready yet." It is such a gift to watch her talk to God about her sister; these two are already starting off with an amazing bond. Please thank God for this precious gift.
