Dear Lily Grace,
You are going to meet your Papa for the very first time this afternoon! The two of you are going to have so much fun together. Your Papa has prepared himself for LOTS of screaming and crying and shear terror on your part. My prayer has been that you will feel a calm and peace that can only come from God.
You are an amazing little girl Lily. My prayer life was transformed the very day I laid my eyes on your photo. I never understood what it meant to pray as if God had already answered my prayers. Even though all odds were stacked against us ever getting to lock your file, Papa and I KNEW you were our daughter. I will never forget the moment I received the text message from Laura in the middle of the night that said, "I got her". Three simple words packed with hope, promise, and healing.
I anticipate Friday, May 11th with so much excitement and happiness. That is the day you will be in my arms forever. I love you Lily Grace, and cannot wait to see what amazing things God has in store for you!
Happy Gotcha Day Sweetheart...
