JOSIE "we LOVE you" MAYERNICK IS COMING HOME TOMORROW !!

 I

I have been looking and praying for this sweet face for well over a year when Katie first told us about her ... Knowing that tomorrow I will see her, touch her, and give her some big ole fat kisses will be enough to keep me up all night tonight ... I think about how she has been at Amani with my sweet Joseph and Daisy, so for me seeing her will be a little like seeing them ... I have told Suzanne many times that as she describes things to me in Africa that I can almost feel them myself ... I have such a huge piece of my heart there that God gives me such sweet moments of feeling the peace of the journey to come ...  Please continue to pray and rejoice with us as Josie meets the rest of  her forever family ...  I am taking the boys out of school tomorrow to go to the airport ... Honestly, there is something spiritual about going to the airport for a child's homecoming ... They walk around that corner at the airport when you see them for the first time and the heaven's sing !!!!  We represent the body of Christ ... We will be the people walking this journey with the Mayernick's ... We are our own type of family, We are a community, and We will be like a 3 cord strand (not easily broken) ...

Thanks to all who have helped Josie get to her family !!!

And who knows maybe I will get my call tomorrow ... I spoke with Mary, from Amani on Friday, (I am her secret stalker ... hee hee)  and her and I are both praying she gets to call me soon !!!!

LOVE YOU ALL !!!!

What time are they coming in? I'd love to be there with my girls to welcome them home. My girls clearly remember meeting the rest of their family at that very spot 2 1/2 yrs ago.

Thank You Jesus! Another little miracle coming home...... what a small world it is..... to think this little one that you have loved and prayed for is coming home to her family who are your dear friends, who live so close to you and now you get to be her Auntie....... I love when God orchestrates these things... it just makes life so sweet!
praying.... praying.... praying....

Oh Gwen, as I read your words about rounding the corner in the airport, through my tears, I got a vision. . .that's a picture of what it will be like one day when we go to Heaven and see the Body of Christ that has been waiting on us :) Your heart moves me so.

Here's the thing. I didn't even read this whole post. I just saw that Josie's face is in the living room where she was dreamed to be and was over come by tears and joy! My thoughts and prayers continue to be with all of you!
