This is the fifth morning that I have woken in my life about to experience the miracle of new birth. I would have never dreamed when planning my future that I would have five children as just typing that makes my head spin. I only wanted one. The fact that I never desired this large family makes the blessing even more bountiful. What an immense privilege it is to be called momma by these babies of mine. What an overwhelmingly good life my Lord has granted me. These journeys to each of my children hold some of my deepest, most miraculous life experiences and they have built my faith like nothing else I have witnessed. I am grateful to God this morning that I didn't miss this calling..that I didn't say no when I first heard adoption and orphan care whispered in my heart. These places I have walked with my children are truly some of the greatest blessings of my life. This morning my devotion was about Easter and Christ's resurrection. It said..His victory over death frees us to serve Him with vigor in this life. This morning I am acutely aware of that reality because without my salvation and the love of my Savior I would not be welcoming another precious one into my arms. Good. Abundantly good is my God to invite me to be a part of the redemption of this valuable little one. Four hours from now, she will be in my arms!
