Thankful Day 6
Today there is a family that is flying across the ocean to adopt a little girl from China. I do not know this family except through emails and her blog. They brought home a little girl last year just before we traveled to bring home Cali. Now they are traveling yet again to bring home another sweet sweet gift from God. I am thankful that although the adoption process has become more and more difficult and more and more expensive that people are still heeding the call to adopt. It is funny how many times I am asked whether we are "finished". How can I say a definite YES! There are definite reasons why we "should" be finished but "finished" really closes that door. Is that right for us, I do not know for sure. But I am so very thankful that others are picking up the one star fish and giving him a home, giving her a forever family, giving him a warm bed, giving her a sweet kiss good night, holding him when the imaginary monsters are abound, putting bandaides where there are no boo boos, reading books, telling her "I love you when you are happy, I love you when you are sad, I love you when you are mad, I love you when you are bad, I love you when you are good. I love you all the time". Thank you for adopting and hearing God's call.
PS I added the family that is traveling today to my blog list on the side bar.
