Mear moments after I wrapped my blog up about how it's been such a rough two weeks I read this blog about a sweet little girl, Teri Lynn. All I have to say is I'm humbled and if my daughter's pink eye is the least of my worries, I am one blessed women.
For as long as I remember I have wanted to adopt. I remember telling my mom I wanted "one of every color." Now that I'm married, my husband has also had a passion burned in his heart for "our little girl in China." Sadly we are "to young" to adopt at this time and we're getting out family "settled in" to life with moving and Evan getting ready to wrap up college and start a professional career, if you can call being a youth pastor professional.
As I read Teri Lynn's story with tears streaming down my face I can't help but think a few things:
* I can't believe I felt defeated by the last 2 weeks. My life is so abundantly blessed!
* Why Lord would you put this sweet child under my nose and not meet the adoptions requirements, nor are we in the position to adopt at this moment.
My heartaches for my children. Children that I do not know where they are, what their life is like, or when I'll get to hold them in my arms with tears streaming down my face. I am reminded of that fire placed in my heart many years ago and longing to hold my babies.
