I have thought about writing a letter to you but until now did not know what to write. It is about 1:00 in the morning and I am unable to sleep. You see the courts are probably just opening in Ethiopia and our case is in line for the judge today. I am praying in about 9-10 hours we will get the phone call we have dreamed about for the past 8 months, "you passed court". This is the point where we can share with the world what we already know in our hearts. Introducing our baby boy. There are so many people that have prayed for you and been on this journey to you with us. We have dreamed about a family for awhile now. On June 11th 2009 I knew our journey was on the right path. You see that is the day we first saw you. We loved you from first sight. A little 3 month old baby boy that we only met in pictures and on paper. I did not know that my heart was capable of such love for someone we had not held or met. For the next 8 months we watched you grow up in pictures, crawling, standing, getting teeth, etc. With every step we loved you more and more. With every delay our hearts ached but we knew you were in good hands. God was watching you. Now in just a few short hours it could be official, you will be our son. I could not have asked God for a more precious baby boy and I am so thankful that he brought you, our smiling sunshine, into our lives. I am living for the day when we get to stand at the bottom of those steps in Ethiopia and hear our name called out and we get to see you for the first time. I can only imagine how my heart is going to burst with joy. We will be together soon! Until then we will continue to watch you grow in your pictures and pray that it will be only a short time until you get to come home! We will be a family soon. We love you.
