I truly believe that Sofia is being watched over by her Great Grandmother Esther, her own personal guardian angel.
Since our decision to adopt Sofia, we have been overwhelmed with the generosity and love from friends, family and complete strangers. God is ever present in this experience and we are certain that there is something larger than us at play here and we are just so happy to be on this journey.
It's so hard to describe in words but we are overwhelmed with emotion almost daily. It's so hard to imagine but we love Sofia as our own. She is our daughter and we can't wait to meet her, hold her, tell her she is loved and bring her home.
We got word this past week that we will most likely be traveling in mid to late April for our first visit. Both Hector and I will go for about 3 weeks. We will return for about 10 days and then one or both of us will return again for 10-14 days to finish up the adoption and bring Sofia home.
It is my personal hope and prayer that we will have Sofia home by late May. It will be the hardest thing we have EVER done to leave our 3 boys for that length of time here at home but we know this is something we have to do for Sofia.
We ask you all for your prayers at this time. That we continue to successfully fundraise so that there are no financial concerns and that our adoption process continues to go smooth and fast so that this precious baby girl can get the family, home and help that she needs to reach her full potential.
We are so blessed.
