Adoption Journey-Day 67

"Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage." Psalm 84:5

This part of the adoption process is a pilgrimage across the Paper Desert. There is no beautiful scenery or inviting landscapes. Here, we move forward by pen strokes and phones calls. We thank our Savior for giving us the gift of being able to travel through this place. It means that Baby Sam is closer now!
