We deceided to adopt a little girl from Eastern Europe, she is 6 yrs old, currently living in an orphanage. When we saw her picture, something about that photo said to us, "I'm beautiful, and you both want me to be your little girl". We also deceided to look in a domestic adoption, but we always went back to her photo to see if she had found a family yet. One day, we couldn't find find her photo on the adoption site, were getting anxious as to what happened, as children are transferred to instututions at an early age. We deceided that if not finding her photo, and the thought of her living alone, in a crib or bed, in an institution, possibly for the rest of her life, was not an option for us, we wanted her, we need her, to give her unconditional love, and everything that a child needs to have a great life. We finally found her photo, had a sign of relief, and thought this is a sign from God. I am currently taking a class, and there was a huge map on a stand, I asked for another sign from God that this is the right thing to do, I just happened to look up at the map, which was about 4 ft from me, and there was an enlarged part of Eastern Europe. We committed to adopting her that night. we are moving along fairly well paperwork wise, considering it's many, many, documents, many, many notarazations. when some frustration happens getting paperwork done, I look at her beautiful face, and move on. Our 2 kids are thrilled, to have her join the family too. It's hard with your child to be so far away, our hearts pine for her. I wish she was here yesterday.
