Lidiyanna has another upper respiratory infection. Please pray for her to heal quickly. I am soooooooo ready to bring her home. Each day is getting more difficult to wait. I think about her all the time, I dream about her at night, and I'm always waiting for a call to say we have an embassy date.

Would you please pray for me to have patience and pray that we get to go soon. We are really hoping for the Sept. 1 Embassy date, but we won't find out until a week or so ahead of time.

Graham starts Kindergarten tomorrow, and that has provided us with a fun distraction. He's really excited, and I am excited for him. He's been carrying around Lidiyanna's brown baby doll that my friend, Amy, sent us. The boys cannot wait for Lidiyanna to be home. They pray for her often.

I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.... Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Isaiah 40:1-5

We are praying for you and for her! I can only imagine how hard it is to wait. I'm so thankful that your hope to bring her home before Christmas looks like it is going to be sooo surpassed. :)
