Another family traveled yesterday to our little girls orphanage, they took lots of pictures for waiting families, our little girl is still not back at the orphanage. I am guessing that she is still in the hospital, although the Mom that was there was told that our 1 year old daughter was doing paperwork, not sure what that means. It was a bit like salt in the wounds and it put me in a sad place.
The only way I can relate the feeling is if someone were to take Kobi away from me, put her in the hospital, and not give me any information other than I could pick her up in a few months.. It feels that horrible. Just because I have never held this child in my arms, she is my daughter, I knew her face the second I saw it. I knew she was the plan God had for my life. We will raise this little girl, see her through Kindergarten, tea parties, soccer games, teenage angst, college, weddings and grandbabies.... I am having a harder time than I expected waiting this time around. I thought my busy household would ease the constant wonder.This is the face that I get to kiss, when I tuck this child in for a nap! Am I the luckiest Mommy in the world or what!
I am praying that we receive word on our daughter soon, maybe she is getting better care in the hospital than she would at the orphanage and in that case I hope she can hang out there a bit longer, Maybe there are some nurses that are loving on her like crazy! I am also praying that we have the quickest paperwork turnaround that China adoption has ever seen.
Oh, and because I got a different camera today.. I took photos of the kids playing, and I think they are super cute...
