More glimpses of Phoebe

I was surprised to get more pics and info on Phoebe this week!  Isn't she adorable?!  It has been neat to watch her grow and change through all of the pictures that we have received. There have been so many more updates during her process than during Levi's.  I had emailed the agency to ask if she was indeed in foster care, because our last update indicated that she was even though we had not been told that.  So we did get confirmation this week that she is in the care of an older couple who has raised a son, and now fosters children who are awaiting international adoption.  Phoebe is the 6th child that they have fostered, and from what we understand she is the only child in the home.  Her foster Mom stays home and her foster Dad works as a security guard.  This is great news!  I am so glad that she is getting one on one attention from a couple, who I pray is loving her up!  Her foster Mom and Dad took all of these pictures for us and they were emailed to us.  Such a treat.

We were told about a week ago that we probably travel on March 16th or April 6th.  I am really really ready to go but I am reminding myself that the Lords timing is perfect.  For me to get irritated about the timing is just me telling God that his timing is not good enough for me, that his plan is not good enough for me, and that I know better.  Hmm.  Ok.  That puts things in perspective.  I just have to remind myself that a hundred times a day.

Thank you all for your love, prayers, and words of encouragement!

I am checking out your blog because from the China forum it looks like you might be on the same travel time frame as us. Your daughter is beautiful! I am feeling ready to have some dates!
