I honestly can't believe we have been waiting for 4 months. I find that the time is flying by. Honestly, with having 4 little people around all the time makes for a great distraction!
Over the last month the thing that has stood out the most is how our boys actually get what is going on. I understand that they don't get everything, but when you mention her name something happens to them. The words Zoe Moon do something to them. You can see it in their eyes, better yet you can see it in their heart. Their heart fills up with love and emotion that they don't even know they have. They pray for her. They want her home. They ask for her. They truly love her. They call her sister.
I have this hand painted wooden cut out of Africa, it's about an inch thick. A great friend gave it to me for Christmas. It hangs from a rope and it is on Zoe's Door. It says "you were born in my heart". Well one day Micah asked me what is that shape. I told him it is the same shape that is on our Zoe shirt's. He replies, "Oh it's Africa?" I reply, "yep". He says, "Well can't we just rip it open and take her out of there?" He chuckled and walked off.
I thought about that little passing conversation we had and realized he wants her here as much as I do. He is having to be patient just as I am. He gets it. He really does.
Well, we celebrated the 4 month mark at Sucre. One of my most favorite places!!
