The text read, "with her now, she just keeps smiling and smiling".... and then "she acts like she's been waiting for us for forever and thrilled we are here. Simple words but they mean so much. They mean over 600 days of waiting are over. They mean that momma and daughter are finally together. They mean that the promise of God to our hearts has again been fulfilled. They mean that a little girl without a family for almost 8 years now has a family that will love her forever!
Of course I did a little happy dance at church when i heard!
Jubilee meets her mommy
Jubilee meets Daddy and Graham via Skype
Jubilee and big sis - Emma
Mommy's smile tells it all!
Linn was waiting in the room and Jubilee came into the room and yelled, "mommy"! Jubilee had our picture in her back pack and kept pointing to it as Linn named off the family members. She will repeat everyone's name and everything and anything that Linn or Emma say. She smiles non stop and she knows who her mommy is and is clinging to her. Which of course makes Linny one very happy mommy!
We met my Jubilee via Skype for about 30 minutes... she would wave to me, laugh with me, even blew me a kiss! Does it get any better.
Today I taught a message on the miracle of Christmas with Mary. Mary conceived it, believed it and received it! We had a promise conceived in our hearts - Jubilee, believed it (not without moments of testing) and tonight we received it - the promise of a little girl, now named - "Jubilee Promise Saunders"! As Ty would say on Home Extreme Makeover - there is only one more thing to say.... "Welcome home Jubilee Promise - welcome home!"
Thank you for all your prayers - God is faithful! Dw
