      Just posting a small update on our progress......I haven't posted anything in a while because we really haven't heard anything or seen any new pictures of Mary Alan. We are anxiously waiting for CCAI to call with our Travel Approval and let us know that China is inviting us to come get our little one. God is still teaching me all about being still and KNOWING that HE is GOD and HE is in control! She is in HIS hands and no one else's. I know He holds the whole world in His hands....even our little girl. He holds her every night, comforts her, protects her and helps her to feel loved. Only He is who she really needs, even more than her Mommy, Daddy or the rest of her family. God is teaching us so much about life in this adoption. He loves all of us more than our parents, our spouses, or any of our family or friends. He is the only one we truly can't live without. I know He loves Mary Alan more than anyone and He knows the perfect timing for her Mama and Baba to go get her. It is shaping up to be a very exciting time in the Colbert home!
        Love in Him,
