Can You Picture Me Holding Her ...


Blogger Family ... you have been amazing while my SIL has been in Malawi ... She has Savannah Hope's visa and will be traveling home Saturday ... She has been in Malawi 40 days ... How biblical is that ... God has been all over this trip, He has touched so many lives, He has opened up our hearts to His forgotten people, He has grown us all ... I love you all for praying, encouraging and checking in on my sweet sweet niece ... I want to say a special thank you to Mrs. Miller ... Mrs. Miller was the sweet lady that traveled w/ Crystal. They had never meet, Mrs. Miller paid her own way, she left her new husband, and so much more to help a stranger (my SIL) ... She has sacrificed so much and I want to say thank you !!!!!


Join me in praying for smooth flight home ...

P.S. We are up to 35 writers for the book ... I have had sweet bloggers post my book post on their blog and have gotten fabulous new writers and meeting new blog friends ... So please feel free to post my book on your blog ...

P.S.S. I haven't forgotten about the post I need to do on GNO (Girl's Night Out ... It is is fabulous adoption fundraiser .... easy $1000 made in month) ...

I am so happy she is finally coming home. I have been following her journey, and can't even imagine being gone that long. I am so excited for all of you!

You are a ray of sunshine my friend.

I just read you sil's blog, what a story of God's provision. That will make an excellent chapter for your book! :)

I am needing a Thelma and Louise fix- let me see what I can do!

Jana was telling me the other night about the GNO you guys had to raise money for adoption. That is sooo cool!! I would love to come and be a part sometime, we also have an adopted little girl from Guatemala named Mia. Adoption is very near and dear to our hearts and we love to help out any way we can. Also it sounds like a ton of fun.

She is so beautiful and I'm praying for a safe return home. Wow, what a journey they've been on...Terry

Michelle said...

Gwen,
That is such exciting news about your SIL. She has been through so much. I will pray for a safe trip home for her and her beautiful Savannah Hope. What a special person Mrs. Miller must be. By the way, I started writing our story this week. I thought I was doing well, but I got on a roll and did a word check, only to find I had already exceeded 1,000 and hadn't even gotten to Mia. Oops! Gotta go Round 2 on that one. :-)

Just get holding her out of your system before I get there:)

Laura Nipper said...

Just a few shorts day until you get to hold that baby in your arms. Oh how I would love to get me hands on her. Give her an extra squeeze from me. I know you can beat of all those sledge hammers and make a break through. Have a great night.

Cindy said...

Savannah Hope is unbelievably beautiful! I can't stand it...I want to give her a squeeze. When I get some time I'll post your request for writers on my blog. You have an amazing family. I love reading your blog.

Oh Gwen...this is such wonderful news!!! So thrilled for your entire family to be bringing home this sweet little blessing!! I hope I get to see her in a few weeks....we are hoping the trip works out...I am feeling a bit of pain but hanging in there.
I will be lifting Crystal, Mrs. Miller and sweet Savannah in prayer as they travel back to the US....I pray for safety and peace as they return!!
Wow...when I read that she had been there 40 days...I just got "Jesus Bumps" all over me arms!!! I am always standing in AWE of HIM and how HE chooses to work in lives! Truly amazing!
Thanks for sharing all this and I am praying over your book every single day!! I cannot wait to get my copy!

Well, I thought about coming to the airport, but I don't know about dodging any sledgehammers!!

I found the cutest little gift for Savannah-Hope last night, it is nothing big, but it is straight from the Lord!!

I'm going to blog about it as soon as my camera battery recharges (I left it on all night downloading pics :( Who knew it wouldn't turn off automatically!!)

I'm not sure if I'm going to make it to the airport, I hope to.

P.S. I passed my licensing exam last night!!

I'm sick, that's why I'm up so early...but there is six hours and 20 minutes left until Savannah is officially on American soil. I can't wait to see the first pictures of she and Crystal in the airport.

Oh, she's just precious. I have followed a little on this journey. I'm so glad to know she's coming home soon. I haven't had time to read blogs as often, so I'm going to check out the book so I can post on my blog as well.
