He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:6

Parting is Sorrow; There is Little Sweet About It

On October 17, Scott travelled to Bulgaria to meet our newest girls.  What a delight they both are! 
Here is G during their first meeting.

                               And this is S.  I think she and her daddy look alike!

G. is a very independent young lady.  She uses a wheelchair but can walk with assistance.  She is a small group home that is very nice.  She has tutors work with her in the mornings and she is smart.  She loved the photobook of our family that Scott brought. 

S. is just the cutest thing!  She loved the ponies her nana sent.  She was shy at first, but she knew exactly why Scott was there and called him "daddy" from the beginning.  Scott says she really wants a family of her own. 

Leaving the girls this time was different from leaving Anna two years ago.  Anna didn't understand who Scott was or why he was there (Although I can assure you, she understands now.  Her daddy is her primary caregiver and she was a pouty girl they whole time he was gone :) 
Scott is very worried about how the girls are taking his being there and then being gone.  It must be so hard to understand why they have to wait again.  S especially seemed confused. 
We would appreciate prayers for their hearts, that God would place a peace there while they wait for us to come back.
We are working hard on getting our last remaining documents completed so that we can get a court date in Bulgaria.  I would also ask that you pray that God would allow us to return for them quickly!
If you feel so led, we would also appreciate any tax-deductible donations you would like to make to help us finish up our adoption.  No amount is too small.  It all adds up!  There is a donation link on the right or you can click here.  As you prepare to do Christmas shopping, you can also help us by entering amazon.com through our blog.  It costs you nothing but we get a commission on the sale.  The link is on the left!  Thanks!
