The Lifter of My Head

Well, I have been very discouraged lately as it has been 77 days tomorrow since we received our pre-approval to adopt Naomi.  We are eagerly awaiting our LOA (letter of approval) from China that basically gets the ball rolling for our travel to China to bring her home.  It can still take up to 8 weeks after LOA arrives to receive travel approval..... so you can see my dismay.  We were really hoping to travel in February, but it looks like March or April now for sure. :(  Serious sad face!   Today, however, my Lord is sustaining me with sweet gifts of pictures of our girl.  We got an email with pics this morning from a sweet lady who traveled to MBHOH in December & then this afternoon opened our mailbox to find the two disposable cameras that we sent to Naomi in her package in November.  You can imagine what a blessing that was!  I just know it is my sweet Lord reminding me that He has not forgotten, He has not left me (or Naomi), and that He SEES.  He is indeed the Lifter Of My Head :)
