I miss you so much!



Sweet Girl,
I didn't realize I could miss you this much! This morning was one of the hardest things...to walk away from you and leave you in the car while we went into the airport. I left part of my heart in that car....it is you. I miss you precious one. I miss your smell....Chris and I selfishly brought some of your blankets home, so that we could maybe smell you. I miss kissing you all over. I miss talking to you (I still have never heard a three month old talk as much as you...guess you got that from your daddy)! I miss your smile.....especially the one that you do every time you fall asleep. I am going to miss not bolting out of bed every time I hear you cough just so that I can rock you back to sleep. I miss your little sweet hands. You make not getting any sleep that best thing ever!! You are my little Mayan diva. I love your laugh. I love the way you already trust us. I am praying for you constantly. We will be back to see you soon baby girl....I can't wait!!

Love,
Your Mommy

What a precious angel! My heart is thrilled with expectation for this sweet addition to your(our)family. I'd love to get my great auntie hands on her! Perhaps this summer? I know you two feel like you're on an emotional roller coaster! Be sure to take care of Sweet Girl's parents. I feel moved to pray for you to make your health a priority.

Love you,
(Gr'aunt) Lainie

David and Marianne said...

Your daughter is angelic! I have followed your journey for a little while now when a fellow blogger put your story on their blog: ) The Lord has certainly burdened our hearts for you and have prayed for you over the last weeks without you even knowing...so I'm excited you found your way over to our blog!

We will continue to pray for God's mighty arm to act on behalf of both of these cuties He put in your heart! The Lord bless your journey and we will continue praying : )

Your little girl is so precious! I'm glad you guys had such a good time with her! I know how hard it is to leave her behind, but I will be praying for you guys that you will be united with her soon!

Amy said...

Beautiful! Yes she is! Praying things go smoothly throughout the process to bring her home! Thank you Lord for answered prayer.

keelstar said...

She is absolutely gorgeous! You will be very blessed to have her as your daughter, and perhaps you will be twice blessed if Xiomara joins your family too! Sometimes God uses circumstances to open our eyes to a new plan...maybe it's different from what you expected it to be, but God is always faithful to those who love Him! The most amazing part is that God already knows what is going to happen & when!! I cannot wait to follow you on your journey to bring your daughter(s) home! Blessings, Keely

Janice said...

Dear Chris and Lindsey.... I also learned of your "journey" by reading another blog. What a wonderful surprise to "stop by" this evening and see that you've been given the gift of the possibility of a second beautiful baby girl....

How wonderful you were able to spend time with "Sweet Girl"... She is just darling.

I will continue to pray that both of these beautiful babies are blessed with you as parents.

Praying the Lord has planted the memory of you all on her young mind and there will be a sweet reunion soon! She is amazing...looking forward to getting a glimpse of your 700 moments together!

Lauren said...

I want to see more pictures of my sweet niece!!!!! I know y'all have nothing else to do :)... I love you and can't wait to be in Nashville in a few weeks!!!

Laura said...

She is absolutely beautiful! I'm not real familiar with Guat. adoption...so, do you get to go visit her before the adoption is finalized? What is the wait time between referral and her being home?

We are about $500 short for paying for our homestudy. This is a HUGE faith step for us and we're trusting God to provide without having to take money away from our bills and whatnot. So far, God has provided every step of the way...down to the penny! I do hair and makeup on the side for a few local photographers and God has been blessing me with alot of extra business. All of that money goes directly to the adoption.

Praying for you guys!! :)

Amanda said...

She is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Yes...you made me cry too!!!

Terry said...

Hold on, honey! Leaving is SO HARD, but you're going to get through it. At the end of this process, you will be on the plane with your sweet girl in your arms and crying along with other new moms that have to leave their children.

Your daughter is beautiful and I'm so glad you were able to spend this time with her. What a blessing!

She is beautiful and this letter is, as well. It will be something for her to treasure FOREVER!! I am SO glad that we got to meet on that airplane. God is so neat! I am praying for you and Chirs daily! We have friends in Tenn. and paln to visit soon. Maybe we can get together while we are there. E-mail me so that I can have your address.

How precious she is and I pray for you and your family that things go smoothly in your process to bring sweet girl home. She is precious and a beautiful gift from God.
We are waiting to bring our little girl home who is almost 8 months now. We have not been able to visit her as we move through this process, and I am so glad that you were able to visit with your little girl. If you ever have questions on the process or anything, please feel free to e-mail me at cstamm@fultoncountyoh.com. We are currently out of PGN and waiting for the birth certificate to be changed to our name!
Praying for you.
Carrie

Melissa said...

I identify so well with the ache and longing in your heart to be with that sweet baby girl. Praying God's love and mercy will sustain you until you are reunited.

Well...I'll just be the 30th post HOLY MOLY!! :-) You all are LOVED!

Our prayers are with you through your process. One thing we have learned though this is "patients." Wait..and "patients".....did I mention "patients"

Hahah...ohhhhh it's really not that funny but we have to smile through it and find the beauty in it..or we will lose our focus. Our focus is our babies..and we will hold them eventually!

Much prayers are with you,
Gurskes
