Courtship: Lives Filled with "Soon-to Be's"

With 55 days until their wedding, Tessa and Aaron got a break from keeping in touch through Skype calls when he visited this weekend. Because he's so new to his job as a computer programmer, the visit had to be a quick one; he arrived on Saturday and will depart this (Sunday) afternoon.

Tessa's new little sister Oksana sought out Aaron repeatedly to request in Russian that she be spun in circles in our entry way. Aaron caught on quickly to the pleadings in a new language and made his soon-to-be sister-in-law very happy.

However, most of the time, the soon-to-be groom only had eyes for Tessa.

The soon-to-be bride couldn't have been happier!

Another two weeks will pass before the two of them see one another when Aaron visits again. At that time, both sets of Tessa's grandparents will be here to meet their soon-to-be grandson-in-law. Until then Aaron and Tessa will have to return to being content with Skype calls. However, that walk down the aisle that will unite them in Christ for life is fast approaching! The "soon-to-be's" in their lives will soon come to an end.

Sometimes it seems like things take forever..........the final adoption, Tessa courting, etc. Then it all happens and you wonder where did the time go! Praying for you all!!!
