Her First Snowman
It was just an ordinary moment. A little girl playing joyfully in the snow happens everyday in these parts. But for my baby girl, it was so much more.
It is the promise of a new life, a forever family, a chance to experience everything that God has made her for.
Just eight months ago this little lady was placed into my arms and since then she has stolen my heart. She is full of wonder and, though her brokenness and heartache at times overtake her, God is turning the ashes of her life into something so very beautiful. I am humbled by the fact that God made her mine.
I rejoice that my morning was spent simply in the snow with this beautiful Chinese treasure beside me. I marvel at how my heart overflows with a love so big for her.
And I was especially thrilled when she wanted to come inside to drink hot chocolate and paint pictures of snowmen because I am not made for the cold.
I am a Christ follower, wife of 20 years to my best friend, and a stay at home momma to five amazing daughters. I am currently waiting for one precious special needs treasure to come home from China. I am passionate about the orphan and special needs adoption. I love to teach God's word, am involved in youth ministry alongside my dh, and love,love, love cooking. Above all, I desire to serve God and surrender my life to His call.
