Orphan No Longer

It is really late and here I am just staring at that face. Oh that face! Her Chinese name is Wei. Wei means valuable and brilliant. I just can't shake the fact that this morning this valuable, brilliant young face with those beautiful brown eyes woke up an orphan. She lives in an orphanage-most likely has many crib mates and gets little attention from caregivers. AN Orphan..She had no momma who called her daughter. Now those same eyes are closing tonight and they are orphaned no more. One less orphan is in this world tonight and this momma's heart is soo full and soo overflowing. I just can't wait to look in those eyes and show her what it means to be accepted into a family. Oh how is it that I am so lucky to be experiencing this? How is it that God has chosen to give this to me? My God is sooo good and soo loving. He continues to just blow me away! To think that if I had disobeyed His call for my life-I could have missed this joy! One less less..mine..adopted into our daughter.

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul! I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. Psalm 146:1

  1. As a 47 year old woman who has never had any children nor known the excitement of marriage, I still hold the aspect of adoption close to my heart. The two most wonderful kids I have ever known were 'mine' to help raise from their birth to today....they are now 9 and 10 and both adopted at birth. I remember when you first started this process and I have listened to your excitement and joy through it all. There are people who wait for YEARS to adopt and then there are people who hold fast to their faith and put their hope in a God who can supernaturally speed up the process. I believe as I'm sure you all do too, that God will bring Jillian to her new home at the exact time she is supposed to arrive. Have fun during the waiting period! Keep your faith and hope alive! James 1:27
