Five Minute Friday: Join

Dear Life,

It's Friday.  And I'm writing my Five Minute Friday post ON Friday.  WOW.  Stop the presses.  Before I do...if you haven't already read my article that was posted at Mom Colored Glasses you can read it HERE.  I am going to share the rules of FMF...maybe some of you would like to join.  It's one of my favorite link ups.  

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag#FiveMinuteFriday
No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
This instantly made me think of our family.
Our family of rowdy (especially today...whew)
And how our family of boys will change when SHE JOINS us.
She is a beautiful brown eyed girl who lives in Eastern Europe. 
She is an orphan.
When we saw her picture we fell in love, we cried for her instantly.  We knew she needed to join our family.
We know the adoption process will be so long....paperwork....trials....tears...and PATIENCE. (Have I mentioned how much I am NOT patient?)
In a year or so.....we will get on an airplane....and bring her JOIN our family.  TO JOIN US.  And an even bigger joy is when we can join together as a family in the temple and be sealed for eternity.  

I cannot wait for our sweet girl to come home.
To Join the Jensens.
