Here are a couple of my favorites from yesterday!
|Doesn't get much sweeter than this... :)|
|I just love this picture. I hope they realize how much we LOVE them!|
|This is from today. We decided to 'break' a rule and put on some chap stick. They were SO excited!|
|Here I told them to show Papa how pretty we are... Grace is such a hoot! :)|
|NO explanation needed... isn't that precious?!|
I am so happy that we'll be able to do that.
I had a melt down in the middle of the visit today... and just started BAWLING! Both girls were SO sweet... however, Faith wiped away one of my tears... kissed my cheek and said very softly and kindly, "I love you Mama!" (with NO prompting or anyone saying anything....) MELTED my heart! Grace was so sweet as well.. and brought over a book and wanted to read with me.. (cause I always read to them ; ))
We talked to them about us leaving, etc.. through Symbat today... we aren't sure how much they really understand.
Despite the pain and agony that we feel... we know that this is
He spoke to my heart YEARS ago... that, "he had them in the palm of his hand... and honestly that was a better place that with us!" so.... we are resting in that.
Busy day tomorrow... our last day here.
oh... and as we were taking the girls back to their room today... (I was carrying Faith) Faith touches my cheek and turns my face towards hers and says to me.. " Mama... Violetta Mama Machina (car) go... PLEASE?!" She repeated this three times in the most pitiful, sad face...
she was asking to go with us in the car... begging me... she said "please" in English...
Thank you Lord for the strength I know you are going to give us... cause I know you will be carrying me when I walk out of that babyhouse tomorrow..
Lord, We trust you!
