but then upon further inspection, i noticed where this "big, giant, red sticker was placed".
a heart over addis ababa, the city where elsa resides.
caedmon came running up to me, so completely proud and beaming, saying "look, i put a heart sticker where elsa is, cause she's our sister and we love her!"
my heart broke (and i quickly forgave myself for the bout of anger i had going on inside of me for the sticker in the first place).
my immediate thoughts were "they get it"...they are understanding the fact that we have a part of our family on the other side of the world.
and in that moment, i was very thankful.
so i ask you...where is your heart residing?
maybe you're not ready for adoption at this point, but i pray that the Lord uses this blog to show you that you don't have to be a small family...you don't have to be a rich family...you don't have to be a perfect family to adopt.
i know many of you have emailed me with specific questions regarding our adoption journey.
if i haven't answered them, please leave them in the comments section of this post and i will answer :)
