Dreaming....of our new little one

Dreaming of a little face we have never seen,
Hearing a heartbeat of a child we have never held, 
Our arms are aching to hold our new little child
and imagining the smell of him or her,
Crying tears when we are missing our little one
Excited to get the call...
Yet grieving the story that is yet to be told,
Yearning to go to the country where we have never been
We are longing to know the little blessing God has planned for our family
Lifting prayers to our Father who knows
our hearts loving an unknown face...
  Unknown to us...not to God - He already knows our child's story

One amazing part of the adoption journey is missing someone you have never met...

We are being knit together with our heavenly Fathers plan for us -
making His plans the desires of our hearts...


 
This Christmas song says it all....grab a tissue! The lyrics are below-
 
Merry Christmas by Third Day
There's a little girl trembling on a cold December morn
Crying for momma's arms
At an orphanage just outside a little China town
There the forgotten are

But half a world away I hang the stockings by the fire
And dream about the day when I can finally call you mine

It's Christmas time again but you're not home
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone
And so tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in his arms
And tell you from my heart I wish you Merry Christmas

As I hang the tinsel on the tree and watch the twinkling lights
I'm warmed by the fire's glow
Outside the children tumble in a wonderland of white,
Make angels in the snow

But half a world away you try your best to fight the tears
And hope that heaven's angels come to carry you here

It's Christmas time again but you're not home
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone
And so tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in his arms
And tell you from my heart I wish you Merry Christmas

Christmas is a time to celebrate the holy child
And we celebrate his perfect gift of love
He came to earth to give his life
And prepare a place for us
So we could have a home with him above

It's Christmas time again and now you're home
Your family is here so you will never be alone
So tonight before you go to sleep, I'll hold you in my arms
And I'll tell you from my heart, and I'll you from my heart
I wish you Merry Christmas
