But when I hear that our sweet daughter, Seung Joo, loves dresses and skirts, bags, hair accessories, necklaces and rings and dolls I can't help but feel EXCITED!
Meet Seung Joo - our DAUGHTER!
She is four years old and is a tiny little peanut who just now fits into size 3T! Love love that!! This picture was taken on her 4th birthday.
We pray we have her home while she is still four. We likely have a wait ahead of us, but no one really knows for sure. It's all in the Korea side of things. Our steps will be done on the US side of things in maybe 6ish weeks?
Long (Loooooooong) story short, Korea's government limits the number of international adoptions each year and this year they cut the number by 10%. Apparently they've run out of exit permits for the year already, so it's likely that Seung Joo will come home early next year. But, there are some cases apparently where special "EP"'s are given, so my prayer request from you is specifically that Seung Joo would qualify for one of these because of her age.
A wonderfully sweet family I've met online brought their almost 3-yr old daughter home in only 7 weeks just a month ago before the "EP's" ran out. We aren't expecting the same thing to happen, but gosh would it be amazing if we could get her home earlier than we're thinking it might be.
So the gathering of girly stuff begins and our heart continues to grow with love! We give the glory to God who led Seung Joo right to our family.
