Our Big Valentine Sent So Far Away

Finally, on February 14th, Valentine's Day, our dossier was sent to China.  Our big labor of love was finally sent to the birth country of our daughter-to-be.  I like to think of it as a Valentine sent to our daughter...in sense, not actually of course.  We now (im)patiently wait for dossier to be logged in, then translated, then out of translation, then our letter of approval.  Friends, would you please pray that somehow our dossier gets through quickly?

Last night as we sat at the supper table to have our Valentine's pizza Eric announced that it was Friday night so everyone goes around the table to pray.  He paused and quietly said, "I feel like we are missing someone...".  Yes.  We are missing a certain someone and we all felt her absence last night as we celebrated how much we love one another as a family.  We all love Yun and cannot wait to add her to our family.  Eric and I eagerly anticipate how she will change us, change the dynamics, and of course, we cannot wait to see how the boys react to having their first sister.

Happy Valentine's Day sweet YunYun.  I pray that deep in your heart you know how much you are loved and cherished...
