  38. Well, tears, obviously. She is perfection and the weight of the wait we share with each other just cannot be expressed any other way that a good cry and a HALLELUJAH! We are 5 months home with our toddler (Thailand) and he could not STAND us for at least a week when we met him. I think I read on FB that she was slow to warm up. :) Be encouraged that God will move mountains in her heart! We are all so excited for your fam and continue to pray for you. --Jen T.

  71. Bethie Bayesh, you. are. bea-U-tiful. From your tiny, petite build to your gorgeous sweet smile. I can't wait til you can come home and get all "Doll"ed up in the wardrobe your big sister outgrew just in time for you. :) But mostly I look forward to how your adoption into a family will teach you about how God longs to adopt you into His. Congratulations, dear one. And to your new family as well. WOO-HOO!!!, and we'll keep praying you all the way home!!!!

  76. I thought it was such an honor to come across your blog today, just hours after you met your new daughter! Congratulations!!! (I think I have read before but today I happened to find you by clicking on a link from a friends fb page to your "I dont want my kids to be happy" post and ended up seeing your post from today. We were there last month meeting our daughter as well. To God be the glory!

  78. What bright, beautiful eyes!! And such a perfect smile! I can imagine that you all haven't stopped smiling since you laid eyes on her! My online Christian support group has followed you for ages, laughing with you often because you are SO funny!! Several of us are from Texas and have made an instant connection with you! And we have all prayed for you often. So we are thanking our sweet Lord for finally letting you have your sweet Baby Girl. Praying that everything goes well with the paperwork and agencies and travel.

    The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
    the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
    the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.

  82. I don't think I've ever left a comment on your blog until now even though I've been "reading you" for a couple years now! As a lurker, I've been so inspired by your family, your personality, your humor (I LOVE that God gave us humor!!!), your faith, & your journey with Bethie! I am beyond thrilled that you are finally bringing home the exact little girl that God has chosen for your family! All the waiting, all the praying, all the tears, all the past disappointments & frustrations--God saw them, heard them, loved you through them, just so that the timing & every circumstance could lead up to BETHIE!!!!

  83. What a beautiful treasure God has given you! Praying that every step in your journey to bring Bethie home will go just according to His great plan. What a Christmas gift - praise His Holy name.

  93. She is BEAUTIFUL! not that you asked, but I nanny for a sweet Ethiopian princess about her age, and we have tried EVERYTHING for the mollescum (freezing at derm, lots of creams, popping) and the thing that has finally worked is Emu oil. Might be good to have on hand when she gets home, because a face that pretty doesn't need scars :)
