Meet the Robinson's

Meet The Robinsons....

Everywhere I turn, I see something that reminds me of Nellie.  A few weeks ago, the kids were watching Meet The Robinsons on tv. We were sitting there and I started to tear up over a disney movie.  A boy who lives in an orphanage, who has so much potential and desperately wants his mom to come back and and take him home.  I understand that this is fictional but I struggle when in the movie Lewis can't find a family to adopt him. Families passed over him again and again. Why because he was a bit odd.  In the end his forever family finds him loves and nurtures him.  Honestly I sat and cried like a baby.

Then last weeks sermon at church, more about Nellie.   Every time I open my bible the verses are speaking to me about Nellie.  The boys playing in snow, doing school work,  more thoughts about Nellie.  Oh, how can you miss someone before you even meet them?  I stare into her photos several times a day and can't wait for the day that I can actually see her face, touch her face, and give her a huge squeeze.

Paperwork for USCIS ready to go in the mail in the morning.  A few more months I can wait that long.   We are coming for you dear girl, and you won't be passed over.


  1. Oh, I can't believe I found your blog! We have Nellie's ornament (from last year) on our tree again, and the kids and I pray for her daily. My son asked today where she was and if there was a family coming for her, and I said I didn't know but would see if I could find anything out. I can't wait to tell him the good news! (He's 4.)

  2. Love the comment above!!! God's bringing everyone who has loved Nellie for so long together!!
    You're doing a great job Beth!! A few more months!! That sounds really good!! :)
