On Friday two families right here in our community are leaving for China to meet their new daughters.
One is a sweet 13 year old girl. How I wish there were more of those older child adoptions. Imagine how that young lady is feeling this weekend. What must she be thinking? How brave to take such a leap of faith and yet she gave her permission for this adoption and is fully aware of what is happening. How special are her parents to do this? She will have two little brothers who are also pretty amazing boys. I am praying for a smooth transition for this family. I can't wait to meet her.
The other baby is coming into a family that has wanted her for a very long time. They have loved her before they met her and she is coming home to what I am sure will be a very special life too. Her parents are over the moon crazy happy and it feels me with joy to just see that.
We welcome these children with open arms and hearts full of love.
