I'm a bit emotionally drained tonight, so this post will mostly just show some more adorable pictures of our princess! Please hug your babies tightly tonight and do something, anything to make a difference for the world wide orphan crisis. Say a prayer for an orphan before you go to bed tonight. Pick the little boy who is rocking himself to sleep tonight (and rocking himself all day long, day after day, for that matter), or the baby girl old girl who cries and screams while she waits to be fed. Maybe you'll choose to pray for the child who sits all day long bored out of her mind, but who never cries because she's learned nobody will come anyways. Perhaps you'll want to pray for the child laying in her own urine, or the one staring into my soul begging me with his eyes to be his mama. Perhaps you'll choose to pray for the child who you know is yours in your heart, waiting alone tonight for you to stop living in fear and act! It doesn't matter which one you pick, but just pick one and pray for that orphan tonight.
Our sweet girl is the bright spot of all of our days here. She is just one, but she is loved and wanted and cherished. Soon she will officially be a daughter, and a sister. Soon she will know what it is like to be a part of a family!
Praising the Lord that he knows us well enough to know exactly how to lead us on this journey!
