We got some wonderful photos of Zadie today! What a gift! Katie and Michael took some wonderful photos of her - how special!! Katie also let us know that she was being held by caregivers both times they visited the foster care center where she lives. That is such a comfort knowing that people are loving, holding and taking such good care of our sweet pea until we can get there. (We will be holding the little piece of love in 17 days!)
The closer we get the more excited we are, of course, but we are also beginning to talk often about how this journey is going to change us. As we read the blogs of those of you who have just returned, we are beginning to realize the depth of loss, the dire need and great poverty that we are about to experience for the first time in our lives. Our priorities are already changing with Zadie on her way, but I believe that we may well be on our way to a paradigm shift on this trip.
But for now... we are still waiting for Zadie.
