Two Years ago Today

A little girl landed in America and into the hearts of her new forever family. I had already had the honor of spending time with her and getting to know her for almost 3 1/2 weeks in Vietnam. She walked from the plane and ran into her daddys arms! It was amazing. She smiled at everyone at the airport like she had just been gone on a short trip.
I remember when God laid on my heart to adopt again I thought I must of misunderstood. Mike, my husband thought I was nuts. But I kept listening to God as He spoke to my heart. I had become open to the idea, actually excited, but my husband was waiting for a word from God. Almost 2 years later (I can't tell you how tired I was of this) God said "Elaine tell Mike you are my messenger" I did and Mike said OK! What a blessing we would have missed out on. My point? Keep on keeping on if you are sure it is something God is asking you to do. Even if it seems fruitless at times because in His perfect time it will all come together.
Kennedy never ceases too amaze me. She is so smart, so kind and good and has everyone who meets her wrapped around her little finger. The one thing that she does that knocks me over is she is so grateful about everything. Well until last Friday night we had a little issue but most of the time she doesn't take anything for granted. So for this older mom, this little one has been a blessing in more ways than I can explain.
By the way this isn't Kennedy's Gotcha Day, that was January 10Th, today we celebrate the day she came home.
