Yesterday was Sarah's 6 month birthday..... I can hardly believe so much time has passed in her young life without us. I try to imagine what her giggles and even her cries are like but I know it will all be in His good time.
My friend, Diane, recently returned from her trip to Guatemala. Two days before Emily was born, she spent an afternoon at Eagles Nest with Sarah. She bought both the girls handmade Guatemalan dresses! I love them!! Thank you Diane for being so thoughtful!
As I looked through the pics she brought me and as she described her time with Sarah, I didn't get terribly emotional... just a little misty eyed.
But later, I was pouring over the pictures again and decided to go in and check on Emily. As I looked at her, there was a fleeting smile across her face. Then I looked over at the empty, waiting crib for Sarah and I completely lost it.
There is SO much joy in adoption but so much loss as well. My prayer today is for all of our adopted children and the families as we seek to glorify God in this amazing journey!
