Her First Dance Recital
Anna Mei was able to participate in her first recital at the Christmas Show. Her little dance class wore white leotards and "performed" an Olaf dance. I use the word perform loosely as the little peanuts mostly just stood on the stage looking adorable and trying to find a teacher to follow as they don't memorize the dances too well yet. :) I am so extremely grateful this morning for my amazing friend and her family who have given Anna Mei her dance classes. She was beyond adorable though I am quite bias. She waited with her little class backstage and then paraded out front on that huge platform like a pro. She didn't dance too much and after the show she told me how scary that big stage was for her.
I stand in awe as I watch her thinking about her life and fate just
eighteen short months ago. How things have changed as this beauty is
now cherished standing on an auditorium stage amidst lights, music, and
costumes. She has been given every opportunity, is cherished, and
adored as a daughter..an orphan no longer. I have to admit that I
mostly just bawled my eyes out as Anna was up there thinking about Molly
Kate still lying in a crib amongst many who will never be given the
chance to know the love and opportunity of a forever family. As I hurry
through this holiday season, I pray that I will stop and remember that
there are so many children around the world who don't have a momma and
daddy to call them son or daughter, to teach them about Jesus, to meet
their basic needs, and to photograph and video each of these
milestones. It breaks my heart to the core. Oh that somehow all could
be home is a prayer I whisper daily.
Here she is dancing her heart out before one very proud momma who absolutely adores her!
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.
