Today, the hands of a two year old girl reached up to me asking to be held.
I can’t describe how quickly I fell in love with her.
Introducing: Little Sister!
She will move in with us this Saturday.
I don’t know how to describe what came over me when I held her today. Tears are threatening to escape my eyelids.
Well…. no hiding it…. the tears are escaping.
She is a precious little bundle of a girl. So tiny and sweet, yet so full of humor and laughter. She is clever and funny.
There will be more time ahead to get to know her more….
But I can tell you I already love her.
Jeff tells me I fall in love with children within 30 seconds of meeting them…. I think he is correct. But, there was something extra special today that happened when I held her. There was an immediate connection in my heart that almost hurt with love.
She is having a sleepover at our house today so she can get used to her new crib and new surroundings before moving in. As I talked to her current foster parents, I was thinking to myself: ‘Do I have to bring her back?’ (smile)
We may not bring her to church this Sunday – as she needs time to make the transition (as did her big brother), but soon we will be back in full throttle and those of you local to us will get to meet her!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN PRAYING WITH US!
