It seems like we've been singing "Oh Happy Day" around here a lot. It's my son's current favorite song and it describes perfectly the "day" we are having today. We received our immigration approval in the mail, oh happy day! Only a few more hurdles to jump and then it'll be in China's hands to allow the travel to pick my little girl up. I feel like I'm on the way down from the big mountain I climbed. It certainly can't come soon enough. My little girl will be two years old in just a few short weeks. That's two years in an orphanage. Two years without a family. Two years without knowing someone will love her forever. Two years. Ugh it's painful to think about. Not only because she's my daughter, but because there are millions just like her that will continue to wait. Some beyond the two years my daughter has. Every child deserves a family. Every child deserves to be unconditionally loved.
