I've been very busy these last days. My mom was here for a visit and left yesterday. We had a wonderful time. I miss her so much.
My other mom, Mark's mama, is coming Monday night to see us, so I'm preparing for her visit.
But, mainly I've been on my knees. I have two friends in Uganda, Africa, right now picking up their children. Both families are friends from CPA/CPC and I have the privilege of following their stories on their blogs and facebook. I check on them a lot during the day and they are almost constantly on my mind/heart. I will post links to their blogs so you can follow if you are interested. What a concrete way to show and share the love for our great God by becoming parents to the parentless.
I know God is preparing my heart as it is a passion of Robert and Charissa to adopt when the time comes. I had always wondered if I could be a good Gigi to a child not of my family or nation, but just by following these journeys and all the journeys of people I know who have adopted, I have fallen in love with children I have never touched or held. I am so excited for the time when Robert and Charissa will bring a little one from somewhere around the globe to be in our family. Meanwhile, I will love on the ones around me.
Please lift up the Kecks, Mayernicks, Doyles, Oatsvalls, Madduxes and Jacksons as they go through this process.
If Drew and Tara have a blog, I can't find it....help me out somebody!
I pray you have a blessed day!
