To our sweet AJ,
Good morning to you Love! It's almost 7am where you are right now. I hope you are seeing and feeling warm sunshine and hearing birds chirp. Did you dream of sweet things and have a good sleep? I am so sleepy tired. Daddy is already fast asleep beside me.
We had such a great day today, Buddy. We got the chance to talk to so many people and you wanna know who we talked about? We talked about you! Yep, we did! We got to show so many people your pictures and tell them how we just can't wait to bring you home! We had so many great people come to your house yesterday and today. Today was the "official" day of our first fundraiser to raise the rest of the money we need to bring you to us! Yesterday was a set up day, but so many people came to bless us, and it was all for you Sweet One. We had a garage sale! We received SO many donations for the garage sale that we had to ask people to please STOP giving!! That just sounds crazy doesn't it?! But it's true! God blessed us over and over again with all of the donations we received! But the blessings didn't stop there- we sold lots n' lots of stuff which led to the Lord opening up the flood gates and pouring out His blessing on us more than we could have ever imagined a simple garage sale could ever have done!
We are not very far into the process of bringing you home, but we are now able to concentrate on getting the paper work done that we need to do to get you to us....or get us to you, rather than wondering where money was going to come from.
AJ, God is so good. Do you know who He is? If you don't, that's ok. Daddy, your big brother, and me- we'll introduce you right away! I have a very good feeling that you do know who He is and that the two of you are pretty tight! I bet you talk to eachother all the time, don't you?
Well, if that's the case, then I don't have to tell you that even before there were stars in the sky, before He spoke them to be, He KNEW all about you! He knew your name, the color of your hair, eyes, skin, everything! He even knew that one day, we would come to get you. He knew that we would be your forever Mommy and Daddy. Nope, you didn't have to come out of my tummy to be one of our true loves! God knew you were going to be a true love for us. We just had to wait until He decided the time was perfect to show us who you were. God's timing is always perfect. His love never fails us.
Everyday we are getting closer to bringing you home! The days just can't seem to go fast enough, but we know and believe without a doubt, in His time (the only time that matters) you will be ours. We love you and think about you all day long. I'm going to fall asleep now. I can hardly keep my eyes open, they are so heavy!!
We love you to the moon and back.
Mommy, Daddy, Big Brother A, Monster, and Two
