One of the things I love about bringing home a new child is getting to know them.
I love beginning to understand who they are, what makes them laugh, how they like to fall asleep, and so much more. Even after having my Jillian home two years, there are still new things I find out about her as we walk alongside each other in this life.
I feel like this is one of adoption's many gifts. The adventure of building a relationship with a little one whom God has made your daughter though you have no fleshly connection is just beautiful.
My babies are beginning to enjoy doing so much together. They have even begun to bathe together each night. It is so much fun hearing them splashing and playing in the tub together. The other night I noticed this..
(see that little freckle on the left side of Mei's chest)
on Anna's chest.
There are no other marks or freckles anywhere near this one. A freckle alone is not something to make you stop and praise God, but the fact that Jillian has the exact same freckle-in the exact same spot on the left side of her chest
that is something that makes you stop for a minute! These two, who have no biological connection, have the same mark in exactly the same spot.
Sean said..Of Course they do. They are sisters!
They are sisters and it is so neat that God has given them this common mark. As they grow, it will be a reminder that God has marked each of them with this special freckle as a reminder that they are made for each other, perfectly placed by Him in our family.
