We were also thrilled today to get an update on Tulah. We were able to get some updated measurements, and to find out that she is now only in her braces at night and at nap time!! This is HUGE!! Her little feet have come such a long way! She has also started walking with a walker and, apparently, LOVES this new freedom!!!
We also got a new picture!! This picture was taken just 3 days ago!!!
Have you ever seen such a precious little girl?!? Look at her hair!!! I know... I'm just a little bias!!! I showed this picture to Zoee and Grayden and they just can't wait to get her here either!!!
As excited as we are, I also carry a heavy heart for her in the next few days as she prepares to leave all that she has ever known. Her world is fixing to be turned upside down. Please join us in praying that God has already been preparing her heart for our family. Pray that He will provide peace and comfort for her until we can get to her, and that she will allow Michael and I to comfort her as she grieves for those who have loved and cared for her.
I am still in amazement that just a year ago, my heart was HEAVILY burdened for a child I did not know. And that Michael's heart was HEAVILY burdened by not sharing those feelings alongside me. There were some hard days when I questioned why I couldn't turn away from this burden. Why would God place those feelings on my heart when my husband, my soul mate, far from felt the same? In those hard days, I clung to God's word for comfort and peace.... specifically Hebrews 10:23.
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful"
Indeed, He is faithful!! While God gently nudged, guided, and whispered to me.... He had to ROAR to my husband. And whether He whispers to our family, or roars (!), we will be faithful and follow Him.
God is good, all the time!!!!!!!! I will keep you posted on our travel dates as soon as we know something!!
